Abstract

Abstract: Hypertension, if not appropriately treated, can lead to stroke, kidney failure, myocardial infarction, and death. Substantial evidence from multiple randomized clinical trials demonstrates the benefit of antihypertensive therapy. Healthcare providers seek scientific evidence by which to base treatments. The purpose of this article is to discuss current hypertension guidelines.
