Advances in Medicine: Current and Emerging Therapies in Hypertension discusses the basics of hypertension including epidemiology, pathophysiology, investigations and diagnosis of secondary hypertension.  The medical management and optimal drug therapy for hypertension is discussed in detail as are other aspects of hypertension management, such as combination therapy, resistant hypertension, diabetic hypertension and treatment of comorbidities.  The molecular genesis and the recent approach to management of pulmonary hypertension is reviewed.

This book focuses on optimal patient management of hypertension and provides the practitioner with current evidence-based practices, ongoing clinical trials, international guidelines and recent advances on the subject.  It aims at enabling the practicing physician to adopt an evidence-based approach in his routine office practice, so as to efficiently manage patients with hypertension and in turn, to maximise treatment efficacy, decrease patient mortality and morbidity and improve health related quality of life
