Research Study Summary
Seeking Oklahomans with High Blood Pressure who are 18 years or older.
High blood pressure, also called hypertension, is created when

blood into the arteries and through the circulatory system and the
second by the resistance of the arteries to the blood flow.
Your heart beats about 60 to 80 times a minute under normal
conditions. Your blood pressure rises with each heartbeat and falls
