Epidemiologic studies have shown that the presence of AF increases risk of mortality by 1.5–1.9 times in the age-matched general population. Hypertension (HTN) is one of the most common conditions in the general practice. It is an independent predictor for the development of AF. Given that uncontrolled HTN increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases, coronary artery disease (CAD), stroke, and chronic kidney disease (CKD), it may be hypothesized that the coexistence of HTN and AF may be associated with higher morbidity and mortality. Objective: 1) Hypertension and AF,Global data 2) Hypertension and AF,Middle East data 3) Diagnosis and Treatment of Hypertension,reduce the risk to develop AF 4) Treat elderly Hypertensive patient properly can decrease the Risk of AF 5) Summery of medical therapy use to control BP and prevent AF 6) The vast majority of literature on atrial fibrillation (AF) is based on studies from the developed world that mainly includes Caucasian patients. Data on AF in other ethnicities is very limited Copyright © 2023 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
