EU discord over US blood pressure reclassification
This article was originally published in Clinica
European hypertension experts are voicing their opposition to the recent reclassification of the condition by its US counterparts, with implications for the treatment monitoring market. The American Society of Hypertension (ASH) recommends that blood pressure management be extended to anyone with diastolic/systolic levels of over 120/80mmHg - compared with the widely accepted 140/90mmHg threshold. It also recommends, controversially, that this group be pre-emptively managed using diuretics.
