New BP guidelines will reignite controversy about when to diagnose hypertension, how far to lower blood pressure, and when to start meds.

This month's TRC Hot Topic webinar features an expert panel discussion about the identification and treatment of hypertension. Listen as Sandra Taler, MD and Suzanne Oparil, MD, FACC, FAHA, FASH, FAPS, along with other panelists, answer common clinical questions about the new ACC/AHA hypertension guidelines, including:

  • Why did ACC/AHA lower the BP goal to <130/80 mmHg?
  • Why has the threshold for diagnosing hypertension been lowered?
  • What are exceptions to a BP goal of <130/80 mmHg?
  • When should BP meds be added in patients with hypertension?
