REVISION DATE: JUNE 2018 / FIRST EDITION

SUMMARY

In late 2017, the American College of Cardiology (ACC), the AmericanĀ Heart Association (AHA), and nine other professional organizationsĀ released a new hypertension guideline. Because of its more stringentĀ definition of hypertension, this guideline has generated someĀ controversy. To provide practical guidance for Minnesota providers,Ā ICSI convened an expert work group to review the guideline.Ā  TheĀ resulting commentary affirms key parts of the guideline, outlines andĀ addresses important criticisms, presents challenges with operationsĀ and management, and offers key takeaways to share with patients.
