Get Personalized Care for Hypertension with Medica's Compassionate Approach

13+ years of Trust in Combating Hypertension

At Medica, we provide world class infrastructure for treating Hypertension at the utmost depending on the diseases they are suffering from.

Hypertension is a common health problem affecting millions of people worldwide and, if left untreated, can lead to serious health complications such as heart disease, stroke, and kidney failure.

While hypertension may not cause noticeable symptoms in its early stages, it can be detected through regular blood pressure screenings.

Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, is a medical condition in which the force of blood against the walls of the arteries is consistently too high.

A normal blood pressure reading is around 120/80 mmHg, while hypertension is defined as a sustained blood pressure reading of 140/90 mmHg or higher.

What happens when Systolic Pressure is more than Diastolic Pressure?

"Pulse pressure" refers to the more frequent situation in which the systolic pressure is higher than the diastolic pressure. Increased pulse pressure may be a sign of stiff arteries, which can be brought on by diseases including high blood pressure, atherosclerosis, or ageing.

Regular blood pressure monitoring is crucial. If you have any worries about your blood pressure or cardiovascular health, speak to our doctors at Medica Superspecialty Hospital, Kolkata.

What happens when Diastolic Pressure is more than Systolic Pressure?

The diastolic pressure cannot be greater than the systolic pressure due to physiological constraints.

Treatment of Hypertension in Medica

To determine the severity of the hypertension and locate any underlying problems that might be causing it, our specialists will conduct a complete assessment.

A blood pressure cuff and other instruments will be used to keep a close eye on blood pressure to make sure it is under control.

Medica’s Hypertension treatment specialists may prescribe blood pressure medications to lower blood pressure, such as diuretics, Angiotensin Converting Enzyme ACE inhibitors, calcium channel blockers, or beta-blockers.

In some cases, Intravenous medications may be used to quickly lower blood pressure.

To control the patient's blood pressure and avoid problems, fluid management may be required.

Our doctors provide a proper balanced diet for hypertension patients with frequent exercise or yoga for hypertension and smoking awareness that can help in healthy lifestyle modifications.

Medica health care teams including neuro, cardio, kidney as well as cancer specialists keep an eye out for any heart attack, stroke, or renal failure-related complications of hypertension in the patient.

As we believe in complete care, follow-up sessions are carried out to check patient’s blood pressure and, if necessary, their treatments for high blood pressure hypertension are also modified.

If ignored,
Hypertension can build up such complications

  • Heart Disease

    High blood pressure damages the arteries and raises the risk of heart attack, heart failure, and coronary artery disease.

  • Stroke

    The risk of stroke can be increased by hypertension, which can harm the blood arteries in the brain.

  • Kidney Disease

    Hypertension can harm the kidneys, resulting in kidney disease or kidney failure. The kidneys are essential for controlling blood pressure.

  • Peripheral Artery Disease

    High blood pressure can constrict the blood veins in the legs, resulting in inadequate blood flow, discomfort, and in severe cases, amputation.

  • Vision Loss

    Blindness or vision loss due to blood vessel damage in the eyes caused by elevated blood pressure.

  • Cognitive Impairment

    Hypertension, especially in elderly persons, might raise the risk of cognitive impairment and dementia.

  • Pregnancy Complications

    Preeclampsia, early birth, and low birth weight are just a few of the consequences that high blood pressure during pregnancy can raise the risk of for both the mother and the baby.

  • Aneurysm

    High blood pressure can weaken blood vessel walls, which can result in the formation of aneurysms, which can burst and result in potentially fatal haemorrhage.

Symptoms of Hypertension

In many cases, hypertension (high blood pressure) does not cause noticeable symptoms, which is why it is often referred to as the "silent killer."

However, in some cases, people with hypertension may experience certain symptoms, which can include:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness or lightheadedness
  • Blurred vision
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain or tightness
  • Fatigue
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Blood in the urine

The only way to accurately diagnose hypertension for hypertension treatment in Kolkata is through regular blood pressure checks performed by our doctors.

It's recommended that adults have their blood pressure checked at least once a year, or more often if they have risk factors for hypertension or a history that increases blood pressure.

How We diagnose Hypertension at Medica

Blood pressure measurement

Utilising a blood pressure cuff, a stethoscope, or an electronic monitor, blood pressure is measured. Diastolic pressure (the bottom number) must regularly be at or above 80 mm Hg in order to identify high blood pressure. Systolic pressure (the top number) must continuously be at or above 130 mm Hg.

Home blood pressure monitoring

Patients may be asked to use a blood pressure cuff and monitor to check their blood pressure at home. This can assist in giving a longer-term, more accurate picture of their blood pressure.

Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring

Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring involves wearing a portable blood pressure monitor for a full day and night, which can give a more thorough picture of blood pressure patterns.

Laboratory tests

Blood tests may be used to detect any underlying medical disorders, such as diabetes or renal disease, that may be causing or contributing to hypertension.

ECG (electrocardiogram)

An ECG can reveal any irregularities in the heart's rhythm and determine whether high blood pressure has harmed the heart in any way.

Imaging tests

To look for any anomalies in the blood vessels or organs that may be causing hypertension, imaging tests like ultrasound, CT scans, or MRI scans may be done.

Physical examination

A physical exam might spot any hypertension symptoms or indicators, like swollen ankles, shortness of breath, or hazy vision.

Preventive Measures
To keep your Blood Pressure in Check

  • Regular exercise and a balanced diet will help you maintain a healthy weight.
  • Limit your consumption of processed foods, alcohol, and salt.
  • As directed by your doctor, take the medication.
  • Avoid secondhand smoke by quitting smoking.
  • Each night, get enough rest.
  • Manage underlying problems like high cholesterol or diabetes.
  • Try doing breathing exercises, meditation, or counselling to reduce stress.
  • Add fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and low-fat dairy products in your diet.
  • Regularly check your blood pressure, and if it is continuously high, visit our skilled doctors at Medica for your optimum health.

To prevent hypertension, maintain a healthy lifestyle that includes frequent exercise, a balanced diet, and stress management, connect to the hypertension specialist in Kolkata who will provide you with a hypertension care plan.


While the majority of people's causes of high blood pressure are still unknown, other factors such as inactivity, a poor diet, obesity, advanced age, and genetics can all have an impact.

A measurement of less than 120/80 mm Hg is normally regarded as normal blood pressure. You can be given a hypertension diagnosis if your blood pressure readings are regularly at or higher than 130/80 mm Hg.

Our doctor might advise additional tests or observation in some circumstances in order to confirm the diagnosis.

Call our doctor right away if you suffer any symptoms, including headaches, chest pain, or shortness of breath.

One hypertensive parent increases a person's risk of having hypertension by 25%. If both parents have high blood pressure, this likelihood rises to 50%.

Overweight or obese people are much more likely to have hypertension. Blood pressure often rises as a person puts on weight, while it typically falls when they lose weight. One of the most crucial components of high blood pressure treatment is weight control. Many individuals may also be able to stop taking medication by just losing weight.

Blood pressure should be monitored at least once a year for the majority of people.

If you have a history of high blood pressure or certain risk factors, our doctors could advise more frequent examinations.
