7/8 Not bad. Good info. didn't necessarily learn anything new. I have had HTN since I was 15, plus I am nurse. It was a good review...thank you.

7/8 I have taken the quiz before so I should have 8/8 so still learning.


At the end of the day, be able to look back and say "I did my best today."

I got 6 out of 8. I enjoyed the article. I got my two prescriptions out to see what they did. I think I'll talk to my doctor about side effects, since I have trouble getting enough oxygen while exercising hard. I won't change the dosage myself, though!

6 of 8.

I found it interesting to read the HOW of the damage HBP does... for example that it is the damaged weakened arteries in the kidneys (and eyes) that negatively affect their function. If my doctor had told me HOW long-term damage happens, rather than just rattling off a list of effects, I might have paid attention sooner!

This is the second time I took this. I scored 6 out of 8. It is always a learning experience.

Still only got 5 out of 8. This is the second time I've taken this quiz. I did learn a possible cause for my poor memory.

5 out of 8. As a retired nurse I disagree with the answers on two of the questions. Good information, regardless.

I have already earned sparkpoints from before while researching about High Blood Pressure.
I took the quiz again though so I could remind myself of the information.

Got 6 or the 8. Learned that the beta blockers I'm taking now are the reason I have a hard time getting my heart rate up and keeping it there during exercise. I also didn't know isometric exercise was good for those of us with high blood pressure.

Got 6 out of 8 right I didn't think it mattered how old a women was to be a greater risk of getting high blood pressure. Took the quiz a second time to make sure I under stood what it was telling me.
