Abstract

With an increase in life expectancy and obesity, the number of patients needing therapy to reduce their hypertension will continue to increase. In the USA in 2012, fewer than half of hypertensive patients are being adequately treated. In order to improve the management of hypertension, the use of more effective and intensive lifestyle modifications and antihypertensive drugs is needed. The appropriate application of these treatments is addressed in this chapter.
