Hypertension is another name for high blood pressure. It can lead to severe complications and increases the risk of heart disease, stroke, and death. Blood pressure is the force exerted by the blood against the walls of the blood vessels.

Comprising more than 1000 pages, this book is a complete guide to the diagnosis and management of hypertension.

Divided into 19 sections, the text begins with an introduction to hypertension, its causes, risk factors, and how it presents in different sectors of the population. The next chapters discuss diagnostic methods and echocardiography.

The following sections cover hypertension associated with other disorders including heart failure, stroke, renovascular diseases, metabolic syndrome, and many more.

Numerous clinical management strategies are discussed in depth, as well as cardio-oncology, nutrition, and ECMO (Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation – a procedure that uses a machine to take over the work of the lungs and sometimes, the heart). A complete section is dedicated to paediatric cardiology and hypertension.

With an internationally recognised editor and author team, the comprehensive text is highly illustrated with clinical photographs, diagrams and tables. The book also includes full online access.
