Analyse des nouvelles recommandations européennes dans l’hypertension artérielle

Review Article

Résumé

Des recommandations réactualisées sur la prise en charge de l’hypertension artérielle ont été récemment publiées par le Comité paritaire des Etats-Unis sur la prévention, le dépistage, l’évaluation et le traitement de l’hypertension artérielle et les Sociétés Européennes d’Hypertension artérielle et de Cardiologie. Bien qu’il existe plusieurs points communs entre les recommandations américaines et européennes, il existe également quelques différences fondamentales.

Abstract

The new European Guidelines in Hypertension: Critical Analysis

Updated guidelines for the management of arterial hypertension have recently been published by the American Joint National Committee on Prevention, Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Pressure and the European Society of Hypertension and European Society of Cardiology. Although there are several similarities between the American and the European guidelines, there are nevertheless some fundamental differences as well.
