Episode 228: PREMIUM – The new JNC8 high blood pressure guidelines dissected and exposed
In episode 228, Mike and James deconstruct the most recent JNC 8 high blood pressure guidelines. We discuss what is good and bad and we debate the issues and what the changes might mean for practice. At the end we decide that it really isn’t a guideline but really a useful synopsis of the evidence around a number of key issues and questions that surround the management of elevated blood pressure.
