Clinical Manifestations

Although in the past a "hard pulse" or "dropsical swellings" (edema) may have signaled hypertension, today the only acceptable way to detect the condition is through the use of the blood pressure cuff (sphygmomanometer). Because the disease is usually asymptomatic, essential hypertension has been appropriately termed the "silent killer." Undetected and uncontrolled, it can damage the arteries, the kidneys, and the heart, and, as several important long-term studies revealed, hypertension is a precursor to premature death from coronary heart disease, stroke, congestive heart failure, kidney (renal) failure, and atherosclerosis.
