    [10/11/04] Scientists believe they are closer to understanding why a condition that can threaten pregnancy occurs.
    MTLP or Preeclampsia
    - Here's a great handout for parents from the Perinatal Education Associates, Inc. except that they're still using the OLD definition of PIH as being relative to baseline values, i.e. rise in diastolic blood pressure of at least 15 mm Hg or in systolic blood pressure of 30 mm Hg. It should be defined as a sustained blood pressure to levels of 140 mmHg systolic or 90 mm Hg diastolic.
    According to ACOG technical bulletin (Number 219 January 1996), hypertension is defined as a sustained blood pressure to levels of 140 mmHg systolic or 90 mm Hg diastolic. The concept of increase in blood pressure of 30 mm Hg systolic or 15 mm Hg diastolic from second trimester values as diagnostic is no longer considered valid.

    Welcome to the Intracranial Hypertension Research Foundation site. We are here to help
    Intracranial Hypertension
    (IH) is the general name for the disorders in which the cerebro-spinal fluid (CSF) pressure within the skull is too high. (Intracranial means inside of the skull . Hypertension refers to high fluid pressure . Old names for IH include Benign Intracranial Hypertension and Pseudotumor Cerebri). The Intracranial Hypertension Research Foundation (IHRF) funds and supports medical research to develop better therapies to control Intracranial Hypertension (IH) while ultimately seeking a cure for IH. The Foundation also provides support, education, and encouragement for IH patients , their families , and medical professionals We are the only non-profit organization in the world devoted to supporting research to find a cure for IH

    Medical report detailing the symptoms and causes of this condition.
    The Danish Hepatitis C website Portal Hypertension What is portal hypertension Background What happens in the body Metabolic effects ... Diagnosis What is portal hypertension Portal hypertension is the build-up of pressure in the portal vein (the vein connecting the intestines and the liver). Normally, the pressure is low compared with the arterial pressure, but slightly above the pressure in the other veins in our body system. The most common cause of portal hypertension and its clinical consequences is liver disease. Portal hypertension is a manifestation of cirrhosis, however numerous other causes of portal hypertension can produce many of these same clinical manifestations, such as ascites (fluid within the abdominal cavity) and variceal bleeding (bleeding from veins in the neck, stomach, and elsewhere). Usually, portal hypertension is secondary to liver disease. It is important to place portal hypertension within the proper context for the sake of this report. It is primarily related to progressive hepatic fibrosis. However, the cause of chronic liver disease is also important because it may produce specific symptoms early in the course of disease, such as itching with mechanical biliary obstruction or severe fatigue with autoimmune chronic active hepatitis (CAH).

    Ocular Hypertension Overview
    The term ocular hypertension usually refers to any situation in which the pressure inside the eye, called intraocular pressure, is higher than normal. Eye pressure is measured in millimeters of mercury (mm Hg). Normal eye pressure ranges from 10-21 mm Hg. Ocular hypertension is an eye pressure of greater than 21 mm Hg. Although its definition has evolved through the years, ocular hypertension is commonly defined as a condition with the following criteria:
    • An intraocular pressure of greater than 21 mm Hg is measured in one or both eyes on 2 or more occasions. Pressure inside the eye is measured using an instrument called a tonometer.
      The optic nerve appears normal.
      No signs of glaucoma are evident on visual field testing, which is a test to assess your peripheral (or side) vision.
      To determine other possible causes for your high eye pressure, an ophthalmologist (a medical doctor who specializes in eye care and surgery) assesses whether your drainage system (called the "angle") is open or closed. The angle is seen using a technique called gonioscopy. This technique involves the use of a special contact lens to examine the drainage angles (or channels) in your eyes to see if they are open, narrowed, or closed.
      No signs of any ocular disease are present. Some eye diseases can increase the pressure inside the eye.

    U nderstanding H ypertension? Why is Understanding Hypertension Important? Many people who have hypertension, or high blood pressure, don't even know it. You can't feel hypertension and that's what makes it so scary. Between 20 and 50 per cent of natural deaths can be traced to hypertension. And remember: Hypertension does not just happen to other people. Your neighbor might have hypertension, your mother might have hypertension, and your children might even have it. In fact, about 20 per cent of adults worldwide have hypertension and five per cent of children have it, too. Amazon Hypertension Products

    Monitoring blood pressure Untreated hypertension Lifestyle changes DASH diet ... Blood pressure Alternative names Return to top High blood pressure Definition Return to top Hypertension means high blood pressure. This generally means:
    • Systolic blood pressure is consistently over 140 (systolic is the "top" number of your blood pressure measurement, which represents the pressure generated when the heart beats) Diastolic blood pressure is consistently over 90 (diastolic is the "bottom" number of your blood pressure measurement, which represents the pressure in the vessels when the heart is at rest)
    Either or both of these numbers may be too high. Pre-hypertension is when your systolic blood pressure is between 120 and 139 or your diastolic blood pressure is between 80 and 89 on multiple readings. If you have pre-hypertension, you are likely to develop high blood pressure at some point. Therefore, your doctor will recommend lifestyle changes to bring your blood pressure down to normal range.
