Overview

This manual is designed to contain all the information needed by the clinician who has to manage hypertensive patients. The ubiquity of the condition and its importance as a determinant of health and life expectancy, inevitably mean that most doctors will find themselves frequently in that situation. They will encounter a formidable literature: hypertension is one of the best characterized of medical conditions from epidemiology to physiology and management. Further, it is now known that treatment has a major impact on outlook for the hypertensive patient.

The Textbook of Hypertension, published in 1994 and written by over 180 international authorities, presented an up-to-date, comprehensive review of the modern science of hypertension. Manual of Hypertension is a digest of that work, presenting information which will both inform and educate the clinician on the nature of hypertension, its consequences and management.
