Nursing Management of Patients with Arterial Hypertension
AbstractArterial hypertension (AH), is one of the most prevalent diseases in the words present a major risk factor for strokes, myocardial infarction, vascular and chronic renal disease. Purposes of this the research was to analyze nurses' knowledge about the nursing management of patients with arterial hypertension at the General Hospital Family Medicine Centers in Peja, to review the literature on nursing management in hypertensive patients, and to provide a series of recommendations that affect the quality of nursing management for patients who are suffering from arterial hypertension. Research is quantitative and analytical in nature. It also has an explanatory nature, relying on current international and domestic literature. The paper is also based on the surveying of 100 nurses. We can conclude that therapy is the patient's responsibility in collaboration with the healthcare provider. Educating about high blood pressure and how to manage it, including medications, diet lifestyle changes, weight control and exercise, setting blood pressure goals and social assistance can help the patient reach the blood pressure under control.
