Abstract

ABSTRACT

Hypertension is one of the most important preventable causes of premature morbidity and mortality. Usually hypertension is asymptomatic for many years but the increase in the blood pressure over the normal value, for a longtime, is the major risk factor for cardiovascular disease. This paper is a part from the study: Evaluation of the Management of Hypertension in a Rural General Hospital in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. In this study, the Saudi guideline for management of hypertension was followed to manage 382 hypertensive patients coming to the internal medicine department in Adam general hospital, the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, from February 2013 to December 2015. The blood pressure was measured using a mercury sphygmomanometer for all patients. The treatment target level of blood pressure was < 140/85 mm Hg and in diabetic patients < 130/80 mm Hg for controlled patients. In the uncontrolled patients, the blood pressure was ≥ 140/85 mm Hg and ≥130/80 mm Hg in diabetic patients. The results of the statistical analysis showed that only 18% of the patients reached the target of the controlled blood pressure determined by the Saudi hypertension management society. The present study has revealed the low percentage of achievement of the target blood pressure.

Keywords: Hypertension, Evaluation, Saudi hypertension management guideline, Adam general hospital, Control, Blood pressure.
