Abstract

According to this study:

 

* In ambulatory adults ages 75 or older, decreasing systolic blood pressure to a goal of less than 120 mmHg reduced the rates of fatal and nonfatal major cardiovascular events and death from any cause.

 

* These results have important clinical implications because of the high prevalence of high blood pressure in this age group.
