Certain high-risk conditions are compelling indications for the initial use of other antihypertensive drug classes (angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, angiotensin-receptor blockers, beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers); (5) Most patients with hypertension will require 2 or more antihypertensive medications to achieve goal BP (<140/90 mm Hg, or <130/80 mm Hg for patients with diabetes or chronic kidney disease); (6) If BP is more than 20/10 mm Hg above goal BP, consideration should be given to initiating therapy with 2 agents, 1 of which usually should be a thiazide-type diuretic; and (7) The most effective therapy prescribed by the most careful clinician will control hypertension only if patients are motivated.
The seven measures assessed included: three types of heart failure medications, including beta blockers, aldosterone antagonists, and angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors or angiotensin receptor blockers; the use of cardiac resynchronization therapy, a device that helps coordinate heart contractions; anticoagulant therapy for atrial fibrillation; the use of an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator device; and heart-failure patient education.
In both study groups, additional antihypertensive drug treatment, other than ARBs or angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, was used to reach the target blood pressure of less than 130/80 mm Hg, Dr.
