What is the best initial treatment for hypertension among persons of Hispanic ethnicity?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
In Hispanic patients with hypertension, initial treatment with commonly available medications (as recommended by JNC 7) works as well as in other ethnic groups (SOR: B, single RCT). Combination drug therapy and intensive drug treatment can provide a greater decrease in systolic blood pressure (BP) than moderate treatment (SOR: C, disease-oriented evidence).
