ABC Of Hypertension

£4.99

Product description

This book traces the development of blood pressure measurement and highlights the increasing dependence on ambulatory and self-measurement of blood pressure. The age of automation is changing the approach to measurement and this is clearly demonstrated in this revised and completely rewritten edition. The ABC of Hypertension is an established guide to the detection and management of hypertension. It contains all that the non-specialist needs to know about the measurement of blood pressure and the investigation and management of hypertensive patients. The 4th edition has been greatly expanded and extensively revised in line with new guidelines, as well as the latest evidence on who and how to treat. Furthermore, there is more integration between the sections on blood measurement and management. The treatment of hypertension greatly reduces the risk of stroke and heart attacks. This clear and practical book is ideal for GPs, who may be screening for hypertension and managing large numbers of patients. Nurse practitioners, many of whom are also running hypertension clinics, will also find this useful as will midwives and other health professionals who need to know more about this common medical condition. This edition should contribute to a much needed improvement in the detection and management of a millions of hypertensive patients worldwide.
