Hipertensión asintomática

R.E.B.E.L. EM - July 21, 2014 - By  Matt Astin
"As emergency physicians, we are constantly on the look out for elevated blood pressures and the potential devastating consequences. We are concerned about intracranial bleeds and acute pulmonary edema from heart failure. But what about the patient that comes in with high blood pressures, yet has no symptoms? Do we need to treat the number or the patient? In this post we will tackle this clinical dilemma of elevated asymptomatic hypertension: To treat or not to treat?
Clinical Bottom Line:
Patients with markedly elevated blood pressure (SBP ≥ 160 mmHg, DBP ≥ 100 mmHg) require neither screening diagnostic studies nor acute treatment in the emergency department, as long as they are asymptomatic. Initiation of therapy may be considered in special patient populations, such as those with poor follow up."
