Maximizing antihypertensive management in the elderly

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The management of hypertension in the elderly is safer and more effective if we consider diurnal fluctuations in blood pressure, preexisting postural and postprandial hypotension, and coronary risk when setting therapeutic goals and selecting or adjusting antihypertensive medications. Lifestyle modifications should coincide with drug therapy in the management of elderly hypertensive patients. The author suggests a checklist of specific considerations when treating hypertension in the elderly.
