    DescriptionThis concise pocketbook is written from the combined perspective of the cardiologist and the general practitioner to offer sound and practical advice on the management of the hypertensive patient. Hypertension is one of the most common medical conditions affecting 25 per cent of the adult population in the Western world and, therefore, accounts for a considerable portion of the GP and cardiologist's workload. This text offers sound, practical guidance on patient management supported by numerous flow charts, key points and algorithms. This is an essential vade mecum for all involved in the management and care of the hypertensive patient including GPs, cardiologists and all those working in hypertension clinics.
