CDC Director recognizes the 2017 Million Hearts® Hypertension Control Challenge Champions
CDC and Million Hearts® are recognizing health care practices and systems as 2017 Hypertension Control Champions. The Hypertension Control Challenge recognizes health practices that help at least 70% of their adult patients with hypertension make blood pressure control their goal. Nearly 1 in 3 American adults has high blood pressure—also called hypertension—but only about half have their blood pressure under control. Improving the proportion under control is the single most important thing we can do in our health care system to save more lives.

Hypertension: Detect, Connect, Control
This session of CDC Public Health Grand Rounds explored hypertension, or high blood pressure. Having high blood pressure increases the risk for cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death in the United States. Nearly 800,000 people die in the United States each year from cardiovascular disease, which is 1 out of every 3 deaths. An estimated 67 million United States adults have hypertension; almost 36 million of them have uncontrolled hypertension. High blood pressure is called the "silent killer" because it often has no warning signs or symptoms, and many people don't realize they have it.

Understanding the New CDC Contraception Guidelines Webinar
Women, men and couples have more options than ever for safe and effective contraceptive methods to reduce the risk of an unintended pregnancy. With these expanded options comes the need for evidence-based guidance to help health care providers offer quality family planning care to their patients, including choosing the most appropriate contraceptive method for individual circumstances and using that method correctly, consistently, and continuously to maximize effectiveness. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) periodically revises its contraceptive guidance for health care providers after review of the scientific evidence and consultation with national experts. The CDC has recently released updated guidelines. Co-presented by the Association of Maternal & Child Health Programs (AMCHP) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), this webinar will help public health and MCH professionals understand the implications of the revised CDC guidelines for state and local health departments in their efforts to improve reproductive health.

Uncontrolled hypertension: All you need to know
Michel Azizi, France, Mel Lobo, United Kingdom and Felix Mahfoud, Germany, talk to Atul Pathak, France, about the current state of the renal denervation field and its future. Michel Azizi explains and comments on the major results of the DENER-HTN study he just had published in The Lancet. This landmark trial in the field shows that renal denervation, done in a very controlled way with very strict methodologies, is able to bring added value to a very specific population in terms of blood pressure reduction. Mel Lobo discusses his paper published in The Lancet, showing beneficial effects of a new approach and opening the part for personalisation of therapy according to the phenotype of the patient. Lastly, Felix Mahfoud discusses the clinical consensus paper from the European Heart Journal meant as a guidance for the field and for future investigations.

Sodium Reduction: Time for Choice
The vast majority of U.S. adults consume excess sodium, which causes hypertension, a condition that affects nearly 1 in 3 Americans. Hypertension is not only a major contributor to cardiovascular disease, disability, and health disparities, but the treatment of high blood pressure and related diseases costs more than $270 billion annually. Today, people have little control over how much sodium to eat. Of the 3,400 mg of sodium the average American consumes daily—more than double the recommended maximum for most adults--nearly 80% is invisible, already in sources such as processed and restaurant foods. This session of Public Health Grand Rounds will explore the consequences of excessive sodium intake and possible means to reduce sodium intake.

Breaking News  - New guidelines drop 'high blood pressure' threshold to 130
New medical guidelines lower the threshold for high blood pressure, adding 30 million Americans to those who have the condition.That means now nearly half of US adults have stage 1 hypertension and need to make urgent lifestyle changes to bring that number down.High pressure has long meant a top reading of at least 140 or a bottom one of 90, but that has dropped to 130/80, according to a report published by the American Heart Association on Monday.The change reclassifies 14 percent of US adults, who were once deemed 'high normal' and now have a more critical diagnosis.Experts have hailed the shift amid swelling obesity rates and poor nutrition.Former CDC director Dr Tom Frieden, who is now the president and CEO of health nonprofit Vital Strategies, said: “We have to take control of high blood pressure worldwide.'The new guideline adopts a rigorous scientific approach, emphasizing the need for treatment and patient engagement.'Previously, anyone who fell between 120-139 and 80-89 was deemed 'prehypertensive' or 'high normal'.Their doctors would recommend lifestyle changes, but it wasn't a matter of urgency.Now, after an announcement at the annual conference in Anaheim, California, the American Heart Association has cut that category short.People with an upper level of 120-129 have 'elevated blood pressure'.Those with a top reading over 130 and a bottom reading above 80 have 'high blood pressure', which is also known as 'stage 1 hypertension'.Doctors say only two percent of the people newly-added to the hypertension category will need medication. The rest are urged to try healthier lifestyles first.High blood pressure raises the risk for heart disease, stroke and other problems.It is often referred to as the 'silent killer', quietly damaging arteries and organs until it leads to a stroke or a heart attack.

CDC Grand Rounds: Preventing A Million Heart Attacks and Strokes: A Turning Point for Impact
Heart attacks and strokes contribute to the almost 800,000 deaths from cardiovascular disease each year. The trauma to families and communities is devastating; the cost to the US economy is nearly $1 billion each day in medical costs and lost productivity. To achieve sustainable prevention, the Department of Health and Human Services launched Million Hearts®, a national initiative to prevent one million heart attacks and strokes by 2017. In this session of Grand Rounds, viewers learned about the progress that has been made, along with the work that is still needed to reach the goal of preventing one million heart attacks and strokes by 2017. The session also detailed how public health and clinical care experts are coming together in communities to improve blood pressure control, how comprehensive tobacco policy efforts can have statewide impact, and how efforts to promote healthy nutrition can occur through increasing the availability of lower sodium products.

7 Foods That Reduce Fight High Blood Pressure Naturally
7 Foods That Reduce Fight High Blood Pressure Naturally Subscribe Here:-https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJhXuzGXVss_itweIpjab0A Hypertension, or high blood pressure, refers to the pressure of blood against your artery walls. Over time, high blood pressure can cause blood vessel damage that leads to heart disease, kidney disease, stroke, and other problems. Hypertension is sometimes called the silent killer because it produces no symptoms and can go unnoticed — and untreated — for years. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated 75 million Americans have high blood pressure. Many risk factors for high blood pressure are out of your control, such as age, family history, gender, and race. But there are also factors you can control, such as exercise an Ever wonder how to lower blood pressure naturally? Sodium has always been the blood pressure bogeyman—shake most of it from your high blood pressure diet and you'll be safe.

Add in these 13 well-balanced foods to your diet to cut your risk of stroke and heart attack nearly in half. A healthy diet is going to be your best friend when it comes to lowering high blood pressure and avoiding the hardening of your arteries. Lower risk for heart disease and high blood pressure is associated with higher fiber, potassium, vegetable protein, magnesium, and iron intake; as well as lower intakes of processed meats, high-fat dairy and sugar-sweetened drinks. A long-term reduction in your salt consumption can also help you lower your blood pressure Knowing what to eat to lower your blood pressure is your first step towards a healthy diet.

Resistant hypertension & treating patients with uncontrolled blood pressure - Prof Thomas Kahan
Thomas Kahan, Professor of Medicine & Cardiologist, Danderyd University Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden, talks to Cardio Debate about resistant hypertension and treating patients with uncontrolled blood pressure. For more interviews please visit www.cardio-debate.com *TRANSCRIPT* What is pseudo-resistant hypertension? Resistant hypertension is a term you use when blood pressure is not controlled. And pseudo-resistant hypertension, or rather apparent hypertension, is what you usually use to describe patients who have three or maybe four drugs, but still have their blood pressure uncontrolled. The difference between true resistant hypertension and pseudo-resistant hypertension is that there are many unrecognized reasons for hypertension that you can actually treat if you do a proper workup. Does it exist? If you look into survey, perhaps half or even two-thirds of all patients treated for hypertension are uncontrolled. And they are then often called ‘pseudo-resistant’ but that is not true because there are few patients with true resistant hypertension – perhaps one our of 10. So it’s a big group in between. But those with true resistant hypertension are a medical challenge because they are difficult to treat, they have a poor prognosis, they have very high risk of cardiovascular events. Is renal denervation the answer to resistant hypertension? If you have true resistant hypertension, we are at the dead end. We have used several drugs, we cannot control the blood pressure. Then there are several device therapies – renal denervation is one of them – that may be the solution. It’s promising, it should work. The physiology is there. But we are not really there in the clinical setting to know how to do it the best way and how to choose the proper patients. But I am quite sure that we will reach it within a few years.

Standard & Isolation Precautions Nursing | Infection Control Contact, Droplet, Airborne PPE NCLEX
Nursing standard precautions and isolation precautions (nursing) review for the NCLEX exam. This review will cover standard precautions for infection control and transmission-based precautions (also called isolation precautions) such as contact, droplet, and airborne precautions. In addition, I will give you 3 isolation precaution mnemonics on how to remember droplet, contact, and airborne precautions. Standard precautions are precautions we follow with every patient at all times because we do not know if the person has an infectious disease or not. This is to protect ourselves and other patients. Standard precautions include: hand hygiene, wearing appropriate PPE (personal protective equipment), injection safety, respiratory/cough etiquette, patient room placement, handling of patient laundry and equipment. Isolation precautions are precautions we follow when we know or suspect a patient has an infectious disease. Depending on the type of infectious disease the patient has we will place the patient in the appropriate precautions. For example, if a patient has Pertussis (whooping cough) we will place the patient in droplet precautions. As the nurse, we would continue to follow standard precautions along with always wearing a surgical mask during patient contact. For a patient in airborne precautions, we would wear an N95 mask along with following standard precautions and place the patient in a special AIIR room (which is a negative pressure room).

Systolic Blood Pressure
►► http://blueheronhealthnews.stvae.com ◄◄ THE MOST POWERFUL NATURAL SYSTEM TO CONTROL BLOOD PRESSURE THAT EXISTS & REALLY WORKS!!! Systolic Blood Pressure How often do you go to your doctor to have your blood pressure check-up? Or when was the last time you had it? Though you have normal blood pressure, it is still recommended to have your blood pressure checked regularly. You may not know your systolic blood pressure have increased. Systolic blood pressure is the number found on top of a blood pressure reading. If your systolic pressure for instance is 100 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) and your diastolic pressure (bottom number, measures against the walls of your blood vessels when your heart is resting in between beats) is 80 mm HG, then your blood pressure is recorded as 100/80, read as "100 over 80." Systolic pressure is the pressure of your blood against your artery walls when your heart is pumping blood to your organs. Many people believe that managing their systolic blood pressure is more important than supervising their diastolic blood pressure. Yes, this is because studies shows that increase of systolic blood pressure calculates the risk of cardiovascular disease compared to increase in diastolic blood pressure. If your systolic is 140 mm Hg or higher and your diastolic is 90 mm Hg or higher, you are considered to have a high blood pressure. Any form of high blood pressure is dangerous if not given enough attention and if not treated properly. Now, do you want to live longer? If you do, then read on. There are many ways on how to maintain a normal blood pressure. One is to change your lifestyle. Limiting your salt intake to 80 mm every day reduces your systolic blood pressure by 4.3 mm Hg and your diastolic blood pressure by 2 mm Hg. People who have been diagnosed with high blood pressure are often required to take medication. Adding a diuretic with an ACE inhibitor or beta-blocker is the best option for people, especially older people with high blood pressure. These simple ways will surely help you live a better life. low blood pressure heart problems heart disease blood pressure problems what is low blood pressure symptoms of heart disease what is heart disease low blood pressure numbers low blood pressure readings heart attack statistics hypertension high bp dangers of high blood pressure heart blood pressure blood pressure low dehydration and blood pressure blood pressure during heart attack blood pressure diseases high blood pressure and kidneys hi blood lowering blood pressure

Overcoming Barriers to Medication Adherence for Chronic Diseases
Medications save lives for countless Americans. People with chronic illnesses such as high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, and HIV can enjoy a good quality of life when they routinely take their medicine. Poor medication adherence is linked with poor clinical outcomes. While these facts may seem obvious, a staggering one half of patients in the US stop taking their medications within one year of being prescribed. The reasons for “medication non-adherence” are varied. Affordability, a lack of understanding of the importance of the medications, and unpleasant side effects are some examples patients cite for not taking their medication as directed. Beyond increased mortality, the result costs the United States billions of dollars a year. Hospital admission rates increase for non-adherent patients with chronic illness by up to 69 percent Comments on this video are allowed in accordance with our comment policy: http://www.cdc.gov/SocialMedia/Tools/CommentPolicy.html This video can also be viewed at https://www.cdc.gov/video/phgr/2017/GR_02-21-2017.mp4

Kids High Salt Intake Linked to High Blood Pressure
(KYTX) September 18, 2012 By Amanda Roberson TYLER - A new study in the journal 'Pediatrics' shows just how much salt children eat in the U.S., and it's too much. CBS 19's Amanda Roberson has more on what the study means for kids health and the leading high sodium foods. Too many kids are eating too much salt: twice the amount they should be and sometimes more than adults. "Packaged foods, processed foods, fast foods, those are all really high sodium types of foods," explained Trinity Clinic Pediatrics Nurse Practitioner Catherine Giordano. She said they're salty foods filling up kids stomachs and leading to major health concerns. "It's a preservative and it tastes good so they pack it into a lot of things now but it does increase the chance of high blood pressure." Giordano said that increases a kids chances of high blood pressure as an adult, and worse. "Having high blood pressure puts you at risk for things like strokes and heart attacks." How much salt is too much salt? According to the latest government dietary guidelines, kids need at most 1,500 milligrams of salt a day. That's a little more than half a teaspoon. And when it comes to real food, a bowl of chicken noodle soup has almost 900 milligrams of sodium, almost half a days intake. "We don't eat any of the deli meats like that, even chicken, we get that clean and natural. We cook it ourselves and don't go through the fast food lines or any of that," explained Sarah Shinn of Canton. Even a picnic lunch for her daughter Julianna revolves around healthy choices and combating high sodium foods. "We just watch it because it's not good for any of us, especially children. They don't really have a say-so. They depend on us to feed them the right foods and teach them." It's similar advice Giordano gives when she sees patients who have or at risk of high blood pressure. "Making sure that they're getting good diet and exercise, high intake of fruits and vegetables, non processed foods and then limiting the junk food and limiting the prepackaged types of food." Because there's nothing sweet about a salty diet. According to the Texas Department of Agriculture, which oversees school lunch programs, the average lunch right now has 1,400 milligrams of sodium. They plan on cutting that number in half in the next ten years.
