Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Hypertension is usually managed on a case-finding basis, and yet continued blood pressure control can be inadequate. Furthermore, hypertension is often a 'silent' condition until comorbid events, target organ damage and subsequent heart failure become manifest, leading to a reactive rather than a proactive approach. Management of the hypertension syndrome becomes complex, because blood pressure control may not be just an isolated concern. This review considers the various options, in addition to existing guidelines, that can help to reduce hypertension-related morbidity and mortality.
