Episode 348: What is Urgent About Hypertensive Urgency?

In episode 348, Mike and James invite Mike Kolber yet again and he urgently works us through the evidence for treating hypertensive urgency. At the end we realize that asymptomatic patients with BPs >180/110 mmHg can be dealt with addition or initiation of oral agents at presentation with close outpatient follow-up. Even though it is “urgent” we don’t need to panic.
