9871Most blood pressure readings taken in 24 hours (multiple location)Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland, The Stroke Association127573 participantsUnited Kingdom, 05 April 2003Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland in partnership with The Stroke Association took blood pressure readings from a total of 127,573 people at over 1,000 sites across the UK on 5 April 2003. High blood pressure causes an estimated 62,000 deaths in the UK every year.During the course of the attempt, 10% of those attending were referred to their GPs and two people were rushed to hospital with dangerously high readings. They have since thanked the organizations for saving their lives. More than a third of the adult population has high blood pressure. In the over 65's the figure rises to two thirds. The accepted pressure target of 140/90 can be deemed too high for those people who have undergone heart bypass treatment. The aim is to achieve 140/85, especially for those with diabetes. Only 10% of people with high blood pressure have it reduced to 140/90. Blood pressure is a contributory factor in 50,000 deaths from stroke and 100,000 from coronary heart disease.
