New Blood Pressure Guidelines for Hypertension

New Blood Pressure Guidelines for Hypertension

The 2015 Systolic Blood Pressure Intervention Trial (SPRINT) found that a systolic blood pressure < 120 mmHg correlated with a lower mortality rate and reduced risk of heart attack, heart failure and stroke.These findings prompted the American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the American Heart Association (AHA) to reassess the guidelines and treatment options for high blood pressure, which were last updated in 2003.
