More than 200 people were screened, evaluated and diagnosed for various ailments. Free blood sugar, ECG and lipid profile tests were also done. Highlighting strong association between environment temperature and blood pressure, Dr Sushil Sharma appealed to common populace to be cautious during rapid dip in mercury level in different regions of J&K. He informed that various studies, both at international and national level, sufficiently demonstrated seasonal influence on arterial blood pressure through single or repeated measurements among adults, elderly, children as well as healthy and hypertensive subjects. “In all of these studies, both systolic and diastolic mean blood pressures show a seasonal peak during winter and trough in summer. This variation is likely to affect incidence of hypertension in different seasons because of the fact that increase in blood pressure in winter will shift proportion of the subjects from normotensive to hypertensive category. This variation linked is with multiple risk factors, such as temperature, physical activity, air pollution and ultraviolet radiation,” he said.
