Deaths prevented by low blood pressure

Deaths prevented by low blood pressure

Thousands of deaths from coronary heart disease were prevented in the UK between 2000 – 2007 according to a mathematical analysis.

Data shown in online journal BMJ Open demonstrate that more than 20,000 deaths were prevented by falls in cholesterol levels and blood pressure.

Researches wanted to quantify the contributions made by drug treatment (primary prevention) and changes in population risk factors (blood pressure and total cholesterol) to the falling rates of coronary heart disease deaths, across different socio-economic backgrounds.
