The National High Blood Pressure Education Program Coordinating Committee published its first statement on the primary prevention of hypertension in 1993. This article updates the 1993 report, using new and further evidence from the scientific literature. Current recommendations for primary prevention of hypertension involve a population-based approach and an intensive targeted strategy focused on individuals at high risk for hypertension. These 2 strategies are complementary and emphasize 6… 

Primary prevention of essential hypertension.

Calcium supplementation for prevention of primary hypertension.

This is the first update of the review to evaluate the efficacy and safety of calcium supplementation versus placebo or control for reducing blood pressure in normotensive people and for the prevention of primary hypertension.

The Effects of Aerobic Exercise on Hypertension: Current Consensus and Emerging Research

This chapter discusses new and emerging research on the effects of acute and chronic aerobic exercise on blood pressure that has the potential to alter the way in which aerobic exercise is prescribed to prevent, treat, and control hypertension in the future.

Exercise and Blood Pressure Control in Hypertension

This chapter presents the pathophysiology, prevalence, and incidence of hypertension, and discusses new and emerging research on the effects of acute and chronic exercise on BP that has the potential to alter the way in which aerobic exercise is prescribed to prevent, treat, and control hypertension in the future.

Physical Activity and the Prevention of Hypertension

The most recent evidence for the role of physical activity in the prevention of hypertension is reviewed and the factors that may moderate the relationship between physical activity and hypertension remain.

Reprint of: Prevention and Control of Hypertension

Optimizing the prevention, recognition, and care of hypertension requires a paradigm shift to team-based care and the use of strategies known to control BP.

Controlling Hypertension to Prevent Target Organ Damage: Perspectives from the World Hypertension League President.

The accelerated decline in blood pressure-related outcomes (eg, stroke mortality), which began in the 1970s in the US and Western countries, included models for aggressive detection, treatment and control strategies for hypertension that can be implemented on a global scale to respond to the global risks from blood pressure.

Effects of Diet and Sodium Intake on Blood Pressure: Subgroup Analysis of the DASH-Sodium Trial

The DASH-Sodium Trial was a multicenter, randomized feeding trial comparing the effects on blood pressure of three levels of sodium intake and two dietary patterns, and results for subgroups defined by age, obesity, waist circumference, alcohol intake, and baseline sodium intake were reported.

Long-Term Weight Loss and Changes in Blood Pressure: Results of the Trials of Hypertension Prevention, Phase II

This was a randomized, controlled trial examining the effects of weight loss and dietary sodium reduction, alone and in combination, in reducing blood pressure in overweight adults with high-normal diastolic blood pressure, which is at high risk for hypertension as they age.

A clinical trial of the effects of dietary patterns on blood pressure. DASH Collaborative Research Group.

A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy foods and with reduced saturated and total fat can substantially lower blood pressure.

Implications of small reductions in diastolic blood pressure for primary prevention.

A small reduction of 2 mm Hg in DBP in the mean of the population distribution, in addition to medical treatment, could have a great public health impact on the number of CHD and stroke events prevented.

Effects on blood pressure of reduced dietary sodium and the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet

The effect of different levels of dietary sodium, in conjunction with the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet, which is rich in vegetables, fruits, and low-fat dairy products, in persons with and in those without hypertension is studied.

Effects of sodium restriction on blood pressure, renin, aldosterone, catecholamines, cholesterols, and triglyceride: a meta-analysis.

The results do not support a general recommendation to reduce sodium intake, but reduced sodium intake may be used as a supplementary treatment in hypertension.

Blood pressure, systolic and diastolic, and cardiovascular risks. US population data.

Recent data from US prospective population studies on blood pressure--systolic (SBP), diastolic (DBP)--and cardiovascular risk is summarized and a great potential exists for improved health and increased longevity through control of the blood pressure problem.

Sodium reduction and weight loss in the treatment of hypertension in older persons: a randomized controlled trial of nonpharmacologic interventions in the elderly (TONE). TONE Collaborative Research Group.

Reduced sodium intake and weight loss constitute a feasible, effective, and safe nonpharmacologic therapy of hypertension in older persons.

Dietary sodium intake and subsequent risk of cardiovascular disease in overweight adults.

It is indicated that high sodium intake is strongly and independently associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and all-cause mortality in overweight persons and dietary sodium intake was not significantly associated with cardiovascular disease risk in nonoverweight persons.
