Over forty percent of people ages 50-60 suffer from hypertension, or high blood pressure. Hypertension is a condition in which blood pressure is abnormally high, which strains the cardiovascular system in the patient. High blood pressure strains the arteries, veins, and internal organs of individuals afflicted with the ailment. Fifty percent of people diagnosed with hypertension suffer from OSA, or obstructive sleep apnea. At home sleep apnea testing can diagnose OSA and prevent the development of hypertension.
Long-term, untreated hypertension can cause:
- Heart attacks
- Heart failure
- Metabolic syndromes, which can lead to diabetes
- Vision problems or loss of vision
- Impaired kidney function
Most people with hypertension don’t experience any symptoms until the condition becomes life-threatening, so preventing the condition is important. In fact, doctors advise patients not to wait until they experience symptoms to be tested for hypertension. Because sleep apnea is one of the most common indicators for high blood pressure, a sleep apnea diagnosis can be a vital component of identifying this and many other dangerous health risks.
