Mayo Clinic Talks: Treating Hypertension: Doing What's Best for Your Patient
Registration required for CME credit
It’s felt that nearly half of all adults in the U.S. have hypertension and it’s one of the most common reasons for an outpatient visit. Despite this, it’s estimated that only about a fourth of those diagnosed with hypertension are adequately controlled and about 20% of adults with hypertension are unaware that they even have it. Since uncontrolled hypertension can increase the risk of cerebral, cardiac, and renal events, it’s important to make an accurate diagnosis and appropriately manage patients with the condition. The topic for this podcast is hypertension and we’ll discuss the changes in blood pressure with aging, the definition of hypertension, the proper technique of checking blood pressure and helpful management techniques with today’s guest, Dr. Ivan Porter, a nephrologist, and hypertension specialist at the Mayo Clinic.
This course is intended for primary care providers: physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants
