Not only do heart attacks occur with high blood pressure, so does congestive heart failure. Congestive heart failure can be deadly and is a result of the heart being unable to pump enough blood for what your body needs. Homeostasis is your bodys ability to maintain an internal environment that is constant, no matter what is happening outside of it. The body has a lot of responsibility, like blood pressure, temperature, and things like glucose levels even. So, when the bodys blood pressure is high, or even low, it means that your bodys homeostasis or balanced state has become unbalanced.
