High blood pressure, also called hypertension, is, simply, elevated pressure of the blood in the arteries. Hypertension results from two major factors, which can be present independently or together:

Diagnosis & Tests
The most precise way to measure blood pressure is to place a small tube or catheter into an artery and directly measure the pressures
A physical examination and a medical history are routinely used to evaluate high blood pressure. Additional blood tests and urine tests, such as urinalysis, also may be done.
