The previous Ninth Edition of this best-selling clinical textbook by a world-renowned authority on hypertension was listed as the #1 reference book by the American Society of Hypertension in 2006, and was translated into eight languages.

For a complete and cohesive examination of the latest literature in the field, Kaplan's Clinical Hypertension, 10e, is the respected, reliable source. It's an essential volume for both the studentand practicing professional bookshelf.
Description: This book summarizes the current state of knowledge about hypertension.
Purpose: The purpose is to address all aspects of hypertension.
Audience: Students, allied health professionals, physicians in training, and practicing clinicians who care for patients with hypertension will find this to be an excellent resource.
Features: This comprehensive overview of the field of hypertension contains 16 chapters on every form of hypertension (renovascular, pheochromocytoma, etc.) written by leading experts in the field including Norman Kaplan, Ronald Victor, and Joseph Flynn, who writes about pediatric hypertension. The largest portion is dedicated to the diagnosis and management of essential hypertension. The recommendations are often the expert opinion of the authors, and they sometimes oppose trends in the field. For instance, the authors cite the failure of the JNC-7 guidelines to incorporate cardiovascular risk assessment into their recommendations for initial drug therapy and instead advocate the European approach for initial drug therapy. The book clearly states any biases of their recommendations and any deviation from current guidelines.
Assessment: Overall, this is a well done book on the broad field of hypertension. Its strengths include the comprehensive coverage, extensive referencing of the latest research, and the engaging writing style of the authors.
