One of two citizens of Brasov City who have undergone the free screening of arterial pressure are hypertensive and in need of treatment.

Until now, almost 1,000 citizens of Brasov City have been tested and the Clinicco specialists have discovered that over 50% of the subjects suffer from arterial hypertension and must contact a specialist.
