Hypertension in the Hospital

Physician Education

By Mark M. Ryan

While blood pressure control may be a crude, if not poor, gague of overall treatment success or failure, it is one medical concept that most patients can understand. A mild elevation in blood pressure may not be at the top of the problem list during my daily rounds, but I find that patients will bring it to my attention if I fail to mention it during our encounters in the inpatient setting.  On the resources page, you can find a complete review presentation of hypertension in the inpatient setting, or you can click here to go directly to the presentation.
