Exercise-induced hypertension


Exercise and physical activity are important topics in clinical practice, and are increasing in modern times where lifestyle-related and chronic diseases are becoming more important than infectious and acute diseases. Proper exercise is beneficial for preventing and treating cardiovascular disease. Exercise poses a risk of exercise-induced hypertension (exercise-induced hypertension). Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and B-blockers will be the best treatment options. Most athletes exercise vigorously for a duration (90-300 minutes/day) 10 times higher than the recommended duration given by the American College of Sports Medicine and the American Heart Association. Therefore, a reduction in exercise duration and intensity may be necessary to prevent cardiovascular side effects.


Olahraga dan aktivitas fisik merupakan topik penting dalam praktik klinis, dan semakin meningkat di zaman modern di mana penyakit yang berhubungan dengan gaya hidup dan kronis menjadi lebih penting daripada penyakit infeksi dan akut. Olahraga yang tepat bermanfaat untuk mencegah dan mengobati penyakit kardiovaskular, Olahraga berlebihan terdapat risiko hipertensi disebabkan oleh olahraga (exercise-induced hypertension). Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor dan B-blocker akan menjadi pilihan pengobatan terbaik. Sebagian besar atlet berolahraga dengan penuh semangat selama durasi (90-300 menit/hari) 10 kali lebih tinggi dari durasi yang disarankan yang diberikan oleh American College of Sports Medicine dan American Heart Association. Oleh karena itu, pengurangan durasi dan intensitas latihan mungkin diperlukan untuk mencegah efek samping kardiovaskular
