Resistant hypertension is defined as blood pressure that remains above goal in spite of the concurrent use of 3 antihypertensive agents of different classes. Ideally, one of the 3 agents should be a diuretic and all agents should be prescribed at optimal dose amounts.
HOW IS RESISTANT HYPERTENSION DIAGNOSED?
The diagnosis of resistant hypertension requires use of good blood pressure technique to confirm persistently elevated blood pressure levels
HOW IS RESISTANT HYPERTENSION TREATED?
In addition to taking three or more medications, patients with treatment-resistant hypertension are strongly advised to make behavioral and dietary changes, such as losing weight, exercising, reducing sodium intake, and increasing potassium intake, as directed by a physician. In response to a growing recognition that treatment-resistant hypertension often requires the coordinated effort of primary care doctors and those physicians with expertise in managing hypertension, medical experts encourage these difficult-to-treat patients to see a hypertension specialist.
DID YOU KNOW?
Studies indicate that 5-10% of resistant hypertension patients have an underlying secondary cause for their elevated blood pressure, a prevalence significantly greater than that of the general hypertensive population
