Hypertension by Graham MacGregor( )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hypertension is a highly treatable risk factor for cardiovascular disease, yet it remains under-diagnosed, undertreated and, in many cases, poorly controlled. Sometimes dubbed ''the silent killer'', hypertension rarely produces symptoms until it manifests as a heart attack or stroke. Early identification of the condition by routine blood pressure measurement and appropriate ongoing management are therefore vital. In this updated fourth edition of Fast Facts: Hypertension, two authors of international renown provide a practical evidence-based approach to the diagnosis and management of the condition. The book provides a thorough overview of hypertension, covering:- Accurate measurement of blood pressure and problems such as ''white-coat'' hypertension- Routine assessments for people with high blood pressure- Consideration of other modifiable risk factors - smoking, high cholesterol levels, etc.- Non-pharmacological measures that doctors can advise on - reduce salt, lose weight, increase physical activity, etc.- Up-to-date trial results on all the pharmacological options- Special considerations for the treatment of children, pregnant women, the elderly and patients with diabetes. Primary care physicians have a leading role to play in screening for hypertension and ensuring that patients receive the most appropriate treatment. Fast Facts: Hypertension provides a concise readable refresher on this common and potentially devastating condition"--EBL
