Background/Objectives: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the most concerning disease in health sectors, whole over the world. Some environmental parameters and physical condition affect on the cardiac health. We therefore observed a cross sectional study of cardiac health condition and analysis to effect risks factors study.

Methods: This cross sectional study was performed on hypertensive patients with their treatment managements. Study area, study population & sample and data collection were well performed by informative questionnaires. Significance of variants data was analyzed considering p<0.05 by SPSS software.

Results: This estimated hypertensive patient’s data was 25.4% female and 74.6% male. 36 to 50 years holdings patients was to be highest, containing 43.8% and their systolic pressure (Mean ±SD) was 143.15±10.51. Age depending Odds Ratio [confidence interval] for 60 up age patients was 1.996[0.756 - 5.269]. Consideration of BMI index the Odds Ratio (confidence interval) of obese patients was 6.258(2.595 - 15.088). Most choice of treatment managements of hypertensive patients was angiotensine receptor blockers. With hypertension some cardiovascular complication were to be occurred , in these condition some combination drugs were to be referred, most choice of drugs was angiotensine receptor blockers and diuretics combination preparation.

Conclusion: Population based cross sectional study in Jessore region was to be estimated cardiovascular diseases and screen out informative knowledge of hypertensive risk factors.
