There’s been a recent change in the hypertension guidelines. Recommendations from AHA/ACC have been made to get a little more aggressive with hypertension management compared to JNC-8. I outline some of the important differences in the presentation below. I have also added this to the 20+ hour BCPS pharmacotherapy webinar. I’m giving year long access for one low price, so if you are planning on taking the BCPS in 2018, you better check it out!
Update is helpful for Type I hypertensive control.
