Beschreibung

A comprehensive review of all aspects of hypertension in the elderly using the most current clinical data. Topics range from basic concepts, epidemiology and trials, and evaluation and management, to pharmacologic treatment, special populations, and adherence, all presented with an emphasis on the optimal management of patients. The authors examine in detail the mechanisms of hypertension in the elderly, the lifestyle trials and outcomes trials that were conducted in older persons, as well as the problems of clinical evaluation, secondary hypertension, adherence, and target organ damage. Extensive discussions of pharmacologic therapy detail the role of all the major drug classes.

Pressestimmen

"The authors provide a comprehensive review of clinical trials of pharmacologic therapies conducted in elderly patients for treatment of hypertension and results of nonpharmacologic approaches that have important roles in prevention and as adjuvant therapy. The reviews are current, and many tables and figures have been reproduced from landmark publications to augment textual descriptions." -Annals of Internal Medicine
"..a comprehensive in-depth review of the literature, making it a useful reference for clinicians and clinical investigators."
- American College of Physicians
"This is a splendid treatise on hypertension in the elderly. The flow of the chapters is superb. The authors are all conservative in their viewpoint and never dogmatic or parochial. The writing is concise and lucid and the references are well chosen and well cited. The illustrations underscore the points as well. The is a most thoughtful and useful effort." - Doody's Health Sciences and Book Review Journal
