Résumé :

The purpose of Hypertension, the latest addition to the acclaimed ACP Key Diseases series, is to succinctly answer the important questions in this area: Is there an ideal blood pressure? How are blood pressure goals to be achieved? What life-style modifications can be recommended? What drugs should be used and when and how? What of possible side effects? Experienced clinicians who have devoted the majority of their medical careers to improving strategies for managing hypertensive patients provide the answers.Chapters are concise and lucid. Readers will welcome the numerous tables and the summaries of key points. Furthermore, each topic, including hypertension in the elderly and in the pregnant patient, is considered in an open and honest fashion. Authors provide their personal views, not a dispassionate listing of the various options or the currently popular consensus treatments. As the population ages, hypertension will become a more frequent diagnosis for the primary care physician. Begin your understanding of its causes and treatment with this outstanding reference work.
