Like its predecessors, the purpose is to provide an evidence-based approach to the prevention and management of hypertension. The key messages of this report are these: in those older than age 50, systolic blood pressure (BP) of greater than 140 mm Hg is a more important cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factor than diastolic BP; beginning at 115/75 mm Hg, CVD risk doubles for each increment of 20/10 mm Hg; those who are normotensive at 55 years of age will have a 90% lifetime risk of developing hypertension; prehypertensive individuals (systolic BP 120 –139 mm Hg or diastolic BP 80 – 89 mm Hg) require health-promoting lifestyle http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Hypertension Wolters Kluwer Health
