Current treatment of hypertension

Vidt D. G.


PDF


Numerous national hypertension guidelines are available. Major similarities and differences have been reviewed, along with both patient and provider barriers to adequate blood pressure control. The current recommended risk stratification of hypertension for treatment decisions together with principles of drug management have been reviewed. Finally, data from recent clinical trials in hypertension together with the lessons learned from those trials have been addressed. It is apparent that most available classes of antihypertensive agents can be effective in the management of hypertension, if used appropriately by providers, in conjunction with optimal adherence with prescribed medications by patients.
