    Epidemiology is the study and analysis of the distribution (who, when, and where), patterns and determinants of health and disease conditions in defined populations.. It is a cornerstone of public health, and shapes policy decisions and evidence-based practice by identifying risk factors for disease and targets for preventive iologists help with study design, collection, and.   The awareness, treatment, and control of hypertension in adult men from 15 countries is presented in Figure 6.

Define descriptive epidemiology. Define analytic epidemiology. Identify some activities performed in epidemiology. Explain the role of epidemiology in public health practice and individual decision making. Define epidemic, endemic, and pandemic.

Hypertension control remains problematic for women especially in old age. 11 The age-adjusted prevalence of hypertension was 34%, %, and % for men and 31%, 21%, and % for women among blacks, whites, and Mexican Americans, respectively.

The prevalence of hypertension is 12% and 5% for white men and women aged 18–49 by:   Hypertension is a well-recognized risk factor for cardiovascular and renal diseases; moreover, even slightly elevated blood pressure (BP) levels lead to increased risk in cardiovascular diseases (CVD) or stroke.

1 Hence, it is one of the leading causes of global burden of disease. 2 As age is an important risk factor for hypertension, 3 the population aging in Western countries exacerbates Cited by: Hypertension is a worldwide epidemic; accordingly, its epidemiology has been well studied.

Data from National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) spanning in the United States found that in the population aged 20 years or older, an estimated 86 million adults had hypertension, with a prevalence of 34%.

Hypertension remains the leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide and significantly impacts the risk of all major cardiovascular events, including stroke, sudden cardiac death, coronary heart disease, heart failure, abdominal aortic aneurysm, and peripheral vascular disease.

Important advances in our understanding of its pathophysiology contributed to clarifying the complex origins. hypertension or high blood pressure, elevated blood pressure resulting from an increase in the amount of blood pumped by the heart or from increased resistance to the flow of blood through the small arterial blood vessels (arterioles).

Hypertension was generally defined as a blood pressure reading of over 90 or higher, but new guidelines issued in define hypertension as over 80 or.

Hypertension (HTN or HT), also known as high blood pressure (HBP), is a long-term medical condition in which the blood pressure in the arteries is persistently elevated. High blood pressure typically does not cause symptoms.

Long-term high blood pressure, however, is a major risk factor for coronary artery disease, stroke, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, peripheral arterial disease, vision Specialty: Cardiology. National health surveys in various countries have shown a high prevalence of poor control of hypertension.

These studies have reported that prevalence of hypertension is 22% in Canada, of which 16% is controlled; it is % in Egypt, of which 8% is controlled; and it. Although not fully understood, sex may affect both the prevalence and control rate of hypertension. The present study was designed to investigate factors associated with hypertension prevalence and control among Korean adults.

High blood pressure (BP), or hypertension, is defined by two levels by American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) guidelines [1, 2]: (1) elevated BP, with a systolic pressure (SBP) between and mm Hg and diastolic pressure (DBP) less than 80 mm Hg, and (2) stage 1 hypertension, with an SBP of to mm Hg or a DBP of 80 to 89 mm Hg.
