Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This two-part series on essential hypertension highlights recent changes in the management of patients with sustained raised blood pressure (BP). A lower proportion of patients in Europe (5-12 per cent) compared with the USA (27 per cent) achieves optimum BP control, and strategies are needed to improve this discrepancy. This article focuses on the methods used to identify hypertension.
