Main Article Content



Hypertension represents the major health problem primarily because of its role in contributing to the initiation and progression of major cardiovascular diseases. The aim of the present study was to evaluate and determine the risk factors and management of hypertension in a tertiary care corporate hospital.

Methods and materials

A hospital based prospective observational study on risk factors and management of hypertension was carried out among the patients who were above 30 years of age and inpatients in the tertiary care corporate hospital. The collected were sorted and analyzed on the basis of demographic characteristics and comorbidities.


It was a prospective observational study in which 200 patients were selected. Among 200 patients, 188 patient data from cardiology department and 12 from other departments, in them 68 are males and 132 are females. Prevalence rate and the incidence rate among all the individuals which were included in the study are found to be 33.33 and 44.5 respectively.


Total 200 members are involved in the study; female patients are higher than males, only male patients have the potential social habits and the prevalence and incidence rate among all found to be 33.33 and 44.5 respectively.
