JNC VIII guidelines
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Based on a systematic review, JNC VIII addressed 3 questions: (1) At what blood pressure should we start treatment? (2) What medications should we use; and (3) What should our target treatment blood pressures be? Bottom line: When lacking evidence, the guideline relied on expert opinion, and although the JNC VIII guidelines are useful, they do not completely meet the criteria for a PURL.
