Abstract

Hypertension can be regarded as one of the most important causes of morbidity worldwide. It is actually due to elevation in the blood pressure levels which is the result of rise in diastolic and systolic pressures. A survey was carried out in the form of questionnaires among biotechnology students.  The resultant percentage of both males and females was enough to conclude that the students were truly aware about the causes of the disease.  

Keywords:  Hypertension, blood pressure, questionnaire, etiology.
