Hypertension

Over 70 million people in the U.S. have hypertension.  With the new classification of hypertension, an increasing number of people now meet diagnostic criteria for hypertension.  Unfortunately, the final AHA/ACC guidelines were published after this issue was written, but the major studies such as the SPRINT study and some important meta-anlayses that provided the basis for these guidelines are included in extensive detail.  The 2018 Hypertension issue of NephSAP guides readers through the latest advances in Hypertension research for this common and costly disease.  This issue provides a background of the basic and clinical research published from mid-2015 to mid-2017, and covers the following major areas of hypertension research: epidemiology, basic science, clinical research, secondary hypertension, and guidelines.  Major clinical issues including the best methodology for blood pressure measurement are detailed in this issue.  Lastly, readers may also test their knowledge with a series of 30 questions.  So, to keep up-to-date in nephrology, do not miss the 2018 Hypertension issue of NephSAP.
