Compared with previous hypertension treatment guidelines, the JNC 8 guidelines advise higher blood pressure goals and less use of several types of antihypertensive medications.
The new JNC 8 guidelines emphasize control of systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) with age– and comorbidity-specific treatment cutoffs. The new guidelines also introduce new recommendations designed to promote safer use of angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs).
After watching Dr. Bergman’s video on what is normal blood pressure I began to see how guidelines shoud be taken with “a grain of salt” so to speak.
There was a change made in JNC 8 that makes sense to me that allows for a persons age and blood pressure guidelines.
Watch Dr Bergman’s video on what is normal blood pressure and make your own conclusion as I did.
