Resistant hypertension management
High blood pressure (also known as hypertension) is one of the most common medical conditions and its prevalence continues to rise. If someone’s high blood pressure can’t be lowered despite treatment with a combination of three anti-hypertensive drugs of different categories (including a diuretic), they may have resistant hypertension.
Acute myocardial infarction
Most often a heart attack (myocardial infarction) happens when one of the coronary arteries that normally delivers oxygen-rich blood from the heart, through the coronary arteries, to the heart muscle (also called myocardium) becomes partially or fully blocked, usually as a result of a blood clot. This reduces or cuts off the blood flow to that part of the heart muscle and it begins to die due to a shortage of oxygen.
