Background How measures of long‐term exposure to elevated blood pressure might add to the performance of “current” blood pressure in predicting future cardiovascular disease is unclear. We compared incident cardiovascular disease risk prediction using past, current, and usual systolic blood pressure alone or in combination.
Methods and Results Using data from UK primary care linked electronic health records, we applied a landmark cohort study design...Expand abstract
