Hi – the news we’ve all been waiting for.
ACEP published a consensus statement in July 2013, Weingart blogged in October, you have it now.
Is there any evidence to further assess OR treat asymptomatic hypertension in ED – NO.
Send them back to their GP for further evaluation and treatment – they’ll be fine.
There are some provisos so please read the article attached.
Here’s a link to Scott’s emcrit post: Weingarts’s podcast on asymptomatic hypertension
