Systemic hypertension is a condition characterized by the constriction of blood in the arteries, resulting in reduction in the rate of blood flow. As the flow of blood is cut down, the heart starts pumping more blood under pressure, which causes hypertension. Systemic hypertension is often asymptomatic and is left untreated for many years until the condition causes serious issues like stroke, heart failure and scores of other problems.
