Abstract

Globally, it is also one of the major causes of premature death, and 7.1 million of people die from hypertension related diseases annually and the problem is still growing. Successful control of blood pressure is of paramount importance in the reduction of morbidity and mortality rates. Normal blood pressure is below 120/80, blood pressure between 120/80 and 139/89 is pre-hypertension and blood pressure 140/90 or above is considered hypertension. An elevated blood pressure means that the heart must work harder to pump blood. High blood pressure can also damage the walls of the arteries. Adherence or orders and information compliance are influenced by patient's beliefs and their health conditions. Some studies have shown negative attitudes of hypertensive patients toward their disease. These perceptions may also be important in patient compliance and performance improvement.
