Hypertension in adults.


Hypertension of any degree is associated with an increased mortality and morbidity. Patients with severe hypertension are at serious risk from heart failure, stroke, irreversible renal failure and retinal damage, and must be treated promptly. Failure to control the blood pressure suggests an underlying renal or endocrine cause, which may be correctable and which should be investigated.
