Abstract:
Designed with objective to analyze the behavioral pattern of women with high blood pressure in Dhaka city of Bangladesh, this cross-sectional study was conducted over randomly selected 493 peoples of 18-64 year age, of whom 52.3% were females, during the period December 2004 to June 2005. Using globally recommended standard tools, data were collected by person-to-person interview and clinical approach basis. SPSS program with required statistical tests were done to analyze and interpret data. Mean Blood Pressure of the women was found to be 123/78 mmHg while that of total respondents was found to be 124/80 mmHg. Prevalence of hypertension was 30.6% according to the criteria set by the seventh report of the Joint National Committee (JNC-7) on Prevention, Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Pressure and also World Health Organization International Society of Hypertension. Mean height of women hypertensives was 156 pus or minus 6.5 cm, mean body weight was 57plus or minus 10.9 Kg and mean body mass index (BMI) was 23.6 plus or minus 4.3 kg/m2. About 67.7% had the history of hypertension among the first order family members. Blood pressure was found to have linear relationship with increasing age (r 2 =0.203, F = 66.4, p< 0.001 for systolic blood pressure and r 2 =0.079, F = 23.2, p< 0.001 for diastolic blood pressure). Blood pressure level increased significantly in women after the age of 45 years. Blood pressure raised with increment of body weight (for SBP r2 = 0.16, F=5.14, p <0.05 and for DBP r2 = 0.049, F=14.3, p <0.001). Among the respondent women, about 25.2% were illiterate with 26.6% having education less than higher secondary level. About 69% of the respondents were house-wives with 10.1% service holders. Tobacco consumption was found among 22.8% hypertensive women. Only 19.8% of hypertensive women did some sort of exercise. About 7.4% hypertensive women take government health care services with 18.2% from private or NGO health care services. Outcome of this study indicates directionality and behavioral lay out of the women in a developing country perspective.
