Categories of Hypertension

The various categories of blood pressure are defined according to blood pressure values for both diastolic and systolic blood pressure readings.

Hypertension is defined as Diastolic pressure > 80mmHg and Systolic blood pressure > 130mmHg.

Isolated Systolic Hypertension is defined as Systolic blood pressure >139mmHg in the presence of a Diastolic blood pressure < 90mmHg. It is most frequently seen in elderly people.

Essential hypertension is the presence of sustained hypertension in the absence of underlying, potentially correctable renal, adrenal or other factors.

Mild Hypertension - Mildly hypertensive people have almost twice the risk of vascular disease compared to people with normal blood pressure. Non-drug measures may be suggested by your doctor if there is no evidence of end-organ damage. If after 6 months or more, these methods have not succeeded, then antihypertensive drug therapy may be necessary.

Severe hypertension has a Diastolic blood pressure > 115mmHg. For people with severe hypertension, their blood pressure may be life-threatening. They must be checked immediately by their doctor for hypertensive complications (eg cardiac failure etc). They are more likely to have an underlying cause (eg renovascular disease). Hospitalization may be necessary for these patients. The opinion of a cardiologist is needed because of the likely risk of serious illness or death.

Refractory hypertension exists where control of the blood pressure has not been achieved despite reasonable treatment for 3 or 4 months. A review of a possible secondary cause by your doctor is appropriate. The uncontrolled hypertension may be due to many possible reasons such as drug-related causes, poor compliance, renovascular hypertension, nicotine (smoking), licorice, caffeine (strong coffee), obesity, excessive alcohol intake, excessive salt intake, renal insufficiency, volume overload or illicit substances etc.

In patients aged 50 or less, the Diastolic level always takes precedence over the Systolic level.

All hypertensive people should attempt to adopt the Self-help High Blood Pressure Treatments.


Noel Bairey Merz: The single biggest health threat women face

Surprising, but true: More women now die of heart disease than men, yet cardiovascular research has long focused on men. Pioneering doctor C. Noel Bairey Merz shares what we know and don't know about women's heart health -- including the remarkably different symptoms women present during a heart attack (and why they're often missed).

How to take Blood Pressure

The classification of hypertension categories should be based on the average of 2 or more blood pressure readings on at least 3 or more occasions.

Measuring Blood Pressure should take the following factors into account :

Apprehension - The patient should be rested for at least 5 minutes and made as relaxed as possible. 'White coat hypertension' refers to elevated blood pressure caused by the anxiety of seeing the doctor's white coat. Affecting up to 25% of patients presenting with mild hypertension, these people have a type of conditioned response to the clinic setting, while their home blood pressure profiles are normal.

Caffeine and blood pressure - Patients should not take caffeine/coffee for 4-6 hours before blood pressure measurement.

Smoking - Patients should also avoid smoking for 2 hours before taking blood pressure.

Eating - Patients should not have eaten for 30 minutes.

Reduce your risk of getting sick with COVID-19

  • Make sure your vaccinations are up-to-date. People older than 65 years, and those with many underlying conditions, such as those who are immunocompromised or with significant liver disease, are recommended to receive vaccinations against influenza (Flu 2020) and pneumococcal disease (PCV).
  • Do not delay getting medical care for your underlying condition because of COVID-19. AMDA International Peace Clinic has contingency MOH infection prevention protocols to protect you from getting COVID-19 if you need care for your underlying condition.
  • Continue your medications and do not change your treatment plan without talking to your doctor.
  • Make sure that you have at least a two-week supply of your chronic disease medications.
  • Call AMDA @ Tel: 6694 1661 for a medical appointment if you have any concerns about your underlying medical conditions or if you get sick. AMDA is a PHPC-accredited medical clinic. Under the MOH Swab & Go Home programme, our doctors can do a COVID-19 PCR Swab test if you meet the MOH medical crtieria.

High Blood Pressure in Children

The children of parents with hypertension should be closely watched. Those at risk of secondary hypertension eg renal or cardiovascular disease, urological abnormalities and Diabetes Mellitus, should have routine blood pressure measurements.

Those children with visual changes, headaches or recurrent abdominal pain or seizures should also have a blood pressure check regularly.

These children can also follow the Self-help High Blood Pressure Treatments.

High Blood Pressure during Pregnancy

High blood pressure in pregnancy can be either Preeclampsia (pregnancy induced hypertension) or Essential hypertension. Blood pressure levels normally drop during the second trimester and rise in the third. Hypertensive pregnant women should be properly supervised by their obstetrician.

Why the Flu Vaccination is Important

during the COVID-19 Pandemic

- Influenza 2020 Vaccine

The latest 2020 Influenza Vaccine is now available. It protects against the Flu 2020 and H1N1 Viruses. In the event that a person displays flu-like symptoms after the Flu vaccination, both Flu 2020 and H1N1 may be excluded in his diagnosis, and treatment can be sought quickly should the patient have contracted COVID-19.

Ministry of Health Safety protocols are adhered to at all times for the safe vaccination of you and your family.
