Keywords Hypertension; Blood pressure; Hypertension guidelines; Blood pressure goals
Core Tip The most recent 2017 American College of Cardiology and American Heart Association guideline redefines hypertension as blood pressure (BP) ≥ 130/80 mmHg. It recommends initiation of pharmacotherapy for all adults with BP ≥ 140/90 mmHg and for patients with BP ≥ 130/80 mmHg who are ≥ 65, have diabetes, chronic kidney disease, cardiovascular disease (CVD), or a 10-year CVD risk of ≥ 10%. Although optimal BP varies individually, it seems reasonable to recommend a BP goal of < 130/80 mmHg, and age/risk-stratified pharmacotherapy threshold. More clinical data are needed to further individualize BP goals for elderly patients and those with certain co-morbidities or multiple cardiovascular risks.
