Recommend a Systolic BP = 120 mmHg for Appropriate High Risk Patients
You'll see changes in the way hypertension is managed.
BP targets. Continue to recommend a BP under 130/80 mmHg for patients with diabetes...under 140/90 for most patients with hypertension...or under 150/90 for the frail elderly.
But expect a systolic BP target of 120 mmHg or less for some patients at very high risk...to reduce the risk of CV events.
