Hypertension: New US blood-pressure guidelines - who asked the patients?

Abstract:
The radical new US hypertension guidelines, released 3 years after the previous scientific statement, have implications far beyond their intended recipients. They include a new definition for hypertension, lower treatment targets, and extended guidance on the implementation of multidisciplinary care, including self-monitoring of blood pressure. Some recommendations are likely to generate controversy.
