Because of the sheer number of patients and because of their location, the community practitioner is in a position to deal with the vast majority of problems that occur in hypertension. The trend in hypertension therapy is toward individualizing the work-up of the hypertensive patient, which with many patients can be very simple. When emphasizing aspects of practical office care of the hypertensive, one of the first questions that comes to mind is: what exactly is the blood pressure? There is not any one universally accepted definition of hypertension. Until such a one is adopted, we have put together a Medical College of Virginia definition, using the opinions of several of us in the Department of Medicine.
