Hypertension in hospitalized patients is common. This results in physicians commonly prescribing medication to control the numbers without properly evaluating the patient to determine the reasons behind the elevated numbers. In spite of the high prevalence of high blood pressure among medical inpatients, management guidelines for these patients are limited. Please join us in this lecture as Dr. Richards will discuss and explain the management of hypertensive emergency including in the emergency department and inpatient settings. Management of chronic hypertension in the inpatient setting will also be discussed.
