The blood pressure of Beryl recordedwas 160/90. The normal blood pressure according to healthcare professionals in human beingswould be 120/80 to 140/90 (DeMarco, Aroor and Sowers, 2014). Thus, she was suffering fromhigh blood pressure. Blood pressure is the pressure that the blood gives against the vascularsystem as it moves through the body. If the blood pressure is too low then blood can't reachperiphery or brain and if the blood pressure is too high, it will start damaging organs and vessels.Higher blood pressure can be because of activation of sympathetic nervous system. Theactivation could activate alpha receptor which cause blood vessels to constrict and activate betareceptor which increases heart rate and force of contraction. Blood pressure can be increased dueto smoking, overweight, higher cholesterol or from medications and supplements. Hypertensionis considered as one of the most chronic diseases which affect the life of many people livingworldwide. It is also one of the major risk factors for cardiovascular disease which affected 8million Australians aged 18 years and above. Prevalence of hypertension increased with age andwithout proper care and support, it has become life threatening.1
