Issues and challenges in hypertension management today
Dr Chris Arden
GP, Chandlers Ford; GPSI Cardiology, Southampton
Most hypertensive patients fail to achieve their target blood pressure despite treatment. As a result, they have a significantly increased risk of stroke and heart attack. Primary care professionals can correct this situation, reducing morbidity and mortality through accurate blood pressure measurement and effective treatment, often with more than one drug. The availability of a new angiotensin receptor blocker, Azilsartan medoxomil, provides an important addition to the choice of available treatment.
This video offers primary care professionals a focussed review of high blood pressure, its measurement and modern treatment.
