      Essential hypertension can be defined as a rise in blood pressure of unknown cause that increases risk for cerebral, cardiac, and renal events. In industrialised countries, the risk of becoming hypertensive (blood pressure >/90 mm Hg) during a lifetime exceeds 90%. Essential hypertension usually clusters with other cardiovascular risk factors such as ageing, being overweight, insulin. A Population-Based Policy and Systems Change Approach to the Prevention and Control Hypertension identifies a small set of high-priority areas in which public health officials can focus their efforts to accelerate progress in hypertension reduction and control. It offers several recommendations that embody a population-based approach grounded.

The Hypertension Detection and Follow-up Program was a randomised trial to compare all-cause mortality of patients receiving antihypertensive therapy in special clinics with those referred to the usual sources of care.

All-cause mortality was significantly reduced overall, and in the mildest hypertensives, by stepped care. This specificity of the antihypertensive effect was shown by the Cited by: The Hypertension Detection and Follow-up Program (HDFP) data are reported by diastolic blood pressure (DBP) stratum for four race-sex subgroups.

For Stratum I (entry DBP 90– mm Hg) in each of the race-sex subgroups (black male, black female, white male, and white female), Stepped Care (SC) participants experienced a reduced mortality as compared to Referred Care (RC).

The absolute mortality advantage found at years persisted and increased throughout the posttrial period of follow-up despite discontinuation of the formal SC therapy program. Interpretation: Stepped therapy was associated with better long-term mortality than community approaches to care.

Periodically, at your follow-up visits, you should be screened for damage to the heart, eyes, brain, kidney, and peripheral arteries that may be related to high blood pressure.
