Question and answer
Q: What distinguishes high blood pressure from conditions such as arteriosclerosis and atherosclerosis? A. Arteriosclerosis and atherosclerosis can't be treated with medication. B. High blood pressure
is identified by chest pain. C. High blood pressure can't be treated with medication. D. High blood pressure has no symptoms.
A: Answer: A. Arteriosclerosis and atherosclerosis can't be treated with medication. Note: The terms atherosclerosis and arteriosclerosis are frequently used as though they are the same condition. [ While both conditions are types of coronary artery disease, and may lead to the need for heart surgery, they are not the same. Arteriosclerosis is hardening of the arteries. This condition not only
thickens the wall of arteries, but also causes stiffness and a loss of elasticity. Over time, the arteries become harder and harder as they are slowly damaged by high blood pressure. Arteriosclerosis may be present in any artery of the body, but the disease is most concerning when it attacks the coronary arteries and threatens to cause a heart attack. ]
