- Recommendation ID
- Optimal systolic blood pressure: - In people with treated hypertension, what is the optimal systolic blood pressure?
- Any explanatory notes
- Why this is important: - Data on optimal blood pressure treatment targets, particularly for systolic
blood pressure, are inadequate. Current guidance is largely based on the blood pressure targets adopted in clinical trials but there have been no large trials that have randomised people with hypertension to different systolic blood pressure targets and that have had sufficient power to examine clinical outcomes.
