Management of primary hypertension in rural populations

Bykowski, Kathleen A.

The Nurse Practitioner. 47(6):30-37, June 2022.

Hypertension affects almost 20% of Canada's population and is even more prevalent in rural locations due to decreased availability of healthcare; lower income levels and levels of formal education; and higher rates of obesity, smoking, and alcohol use, among others. This article uses current evidence to describe the management of primary hypertension in rural populations.

The prevalence of hypertension in Black women (57.6%) is among the highest in the world.

Benenson, Irina; Bradshaw, Molly J.

The Nurse Practitioner. 46(10):50-55, October 2021.

Patients who present to an outpatient office with hypertensive urgency—or severely elevated BP without evidence of acute target organ damage—can be safely treated in the ambulatory setting by initiating or reestablishing long-acting oral antihypertensive medications, addressing medication nonadherence, and reviewing precipitating factors.

SGLT2 inhibitors: What role do they play in heart failure with reduced ejection fraction?

Lenahan, Christy McDonald; Harrington, Deedra; Stueben, Frances

The Nurse Practitioner. 46(7):30-37, July 2021.

Sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitors can decrease risk for heart failure in patients with type 2 diabetes and can decrease risk of major cardiovascular events in patients with heart failure (HF) and diabetes. Specific SGLT2 inhibitors can also decrease major cardiovascular events in patients with HF only.

Falls, Candice

The Nurse Practitioner. 46(3):46-50, March 2021.

Heart failure readmission rates continue to rise and cause economic burden in the US.
