As of March 2020, the noted increase of 4% progression of Stage 1 hypertensives to Stage II hypertensive individuals could be attributed to a lot of factors but most especially non-compliance to medications and lack thereof. The attention was brought to the municipal health officer who in return made it a point to reach out to the department of health. Other factors that deserve attention are the geographical factor, Manguiles being 16 kilometers away from the municipal center, the lifestyle of the people especially that their diet is high in salt content and their poor health seeking behaviors mostly because hypertension is asymptomatic and due to financial constraints.
The series of lecture on hypertension might have instilled change in the people. Although the 80% objective was not meant, it could be noted that more people are participating in activities to address hypertension such as the BP monitoring, lectures and Zumba sessions.
The compliance rate among the enrolled hypertensive individuals is at 53%. The continuance of programs of instilling healthy habits as a part of each individual’s daily lifestyle practices has also been bearing fruits. Recently with the introduction of the DASH Diet, wherein 70% of the hypertensive individuals attended and scored higher than passing rate, it is expected to have less progressions and mortalities and more compliance, hopefully. With the presence of the very knowledgeable BHWs, the team is confident to leave the hypertensive individuals in their care for proper assessment and due referral
The figure above shows the comparison between the number of pre-hypertensive and hypertensive individuals every community exposure. Blood pressure monitoring is done every 3 weeks by BHWs accompanied by medical students. There is a noted steady decline in the number of mortalities due to cerebrovascular accidents. Although the trend in progression has been decreasing, in December 2019 and March 2020, a 4% progression was also noted in the Stage 1 and Stage 2 individuals. There is a need to increase compliance to medications to avoid further complications most especially death. With the help and efforts of the medical students, BHWs, midwife, nurse and the RHU, case finding, diagnosis and provenance of medications have greatly alleviated the possible complications of the hypertension.
