Hypertension, more commonly known as “high blood pressure,” has been called “the silent killer” because many people do not realize that their blood pressure is high until it causes a heart attack or stroke. Roughly 1 in 3 American adults have high blood pressure. To learn about high blood pressure, Dr. Jay Butler welcomes Alaska internal medicine specialist Dr. Julie McCormick for a discussion of high blood pressure—why it is important and what you and your health care provider can do about it.
