[Current problems of controlling arterial hypertension].


A representative selection of the inhabitants of Kaunas has shown that the referral of the population to the medical institutions for detection of hypertension is being insufficiently used. The results of the experiment with arterial pressure measurements in all the people coming to the polyclinic speak in favor of the arterial pressure taking: half of them did not know that they had hypertension. Among people under 60 not attending the polyclinic arterial hypertension was found just as frequently as among those who attended the polyclinic.
