  • Update on Hypertension Screening and Management in the Young Adult

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 09/08/2020

    Hypertension leads to significant morbidity and mortality. Recent guidelines redefined stages of hypertension by lowering systolic and diastolic pressure. This diagnostic change will increase the prevalence of hypertension in young adults, age 18 to 39, in whom an estimated 30-40% will now reach diagnostic criteria for hypertension. Successful management of these patients may help decrease cardiovascular events later in life. A summary of the guidelines will be presented, along with diagnosis and treatment recommendations.
