A recent report published in the Journal Of American Medical Association announced that having high blood pressure during a heart attack might not be completely bad. In fact a theory by Dr. Mihai Gheorghiade of Northwestern University has brought the association of heart attach and high blood to be viewed in new light.
Dr. Gheorghiade through his research found that during the time of admission if a patient with heart failure continues to have a high blood pressure for a period of a few hours then this could indicate that the patient's heart is strong and he is hence less likely to die.
AdvertisementHence having high blood pressure is not necessarily good but it can be a useful indicator for Doctors to diagnose the strength of the patient's heart and give medication accordingly.
