Abstract

According to the CDC, 32% of U.S. adults over age 20 are hypertensive, accounting for more than 40 million visits to a healthcare provider. But one-third of those with high BP are either unaware of the condition or receive ineffective treatment. To educate your patients about the consequences of sustained hypertension and increase their adherence to treatment, you should have a basic understanding of this condition. We give you the knowledge you need.
