February is HEART month (appropriate since February contains Valentine’s day) and because heart disease or cardiovascular disease continues to be the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States and now globally, it is appropriate that we continue to educate clinicians and citizens of the pathophysiology, clinical consequences, and management of heart disease. Since hypertension is the leading risk factor for cardiovascular disease including its major target organs such as the heart, brain, kidney, and blood vessels, this podcast will be dedicated to hypertension. Areas of discussion that will take place are: why is hypertension an important clinical condition, what causes hypertension, and what are some current innovative measures and/or programs to detect and manage hypertension for the individual as well as at a population level.
