    Hypertension is a chronic medical condition characterized by high blood pressure. It is a long-term condition that requires ongoing management and treatment. Unlike heart failure, which is a specific condition where the heart is unable to pump enough blood to meet the body's needs, hypertension refers to consistently elevated blood pressure levels. It is not caused by a virus or bacteria, but rather by various factors such as genetics, lifestyle choices, and underlying health conditions.
