Hypertension: Basic Principles with Carlo Raj

by Carlo Raj, MD

Hypertension, the persistent elevation of arterial blood pressure, is a devastating and insidious disease, as it is chronic and often asymptomatic until it leads to end-organ complications, such as renal failure, heart failure, myocardial infarction, or stroke. Hypertension can be classified as either primary (having no clear underlying etiology) or secondary, with the former being the most common. It is important to note, however, that up to 10% of patients with hypertension do have secondary hypertension, which is potentially reversible depending on the underlying etiology. Learning how to manage and treat hypertension can save many lives throughout your medical career.
