The main purpose of this book is to select and present the most essential information about hypertension. It aims to select all the more relevant data to guide the attitudes to prevent, diagnose, and treat hypertension. Hypertension accounts for more than 50% of deaths from stroke and ischemic heart disease worldwide. New blood pressure (BP) diagnostic thresholds for hypertension are coming out, and they will likely be set at 120-130/80 mmHg. As a consequence, nearly two thirds of adults in the world will be at greater risk of a CV event.
