The Manual of Hypertension of the European Society of Hypertension reflects emerging concepts that have the potential to impact diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to hypertension. Updating all material, this new edition also delves into a number of areas that have received heightened interest in recent years or have become a matter of debate due to the controversial interpretation of the available data.
- Reflects emerging concepts impacting diagnostic and therapeutic approaches
- Explores background, history, epidemiology, and risk factors
- Describes pharmacological, nonpharmacological, and medical treatments
- Examines hypertension in special populations and treatment
