Current Research in Hypertension — the Swedish Experiences

Peter M. Nilsson
Nadciśnienie tętnicze 2000;4(3):167-172.

Abstract

Clinical hypertension is a matter of great concern in many populations due to the high risk of cardiovascular disease and increasing health care costs. Both in Poland and Sweden a large proportion of the adult population has now been diagnosed with combined hypertension or isolated systolic hypertension. Not all patients are however effectively treated and thus do not have a satisfactory blood pressure control. In order to further develop the bilateral contacts between our two countries and hypertension societies this short review of Swedish research in hypertension has been written. It is also timely to write about this topic as more and more Polish physicians are coming to work in Sweden for clinical work and will get in contact with hypertensive patients and their treatment.
