Managing asymptomatic high blood pressure linked to cardiac, kidney injury
In hospitalised patients, blood pressure is routinely monitored. Severe hypertension can cause a heart attack, stroke, or damage to blood arteries and organs such as the heart, brain, kidneys, and eyes. Most hospitalised people, on the other hand, have transiently raised blood pressure without evidence of organ damage, which is known as silent hypertension and is occasionally treated with blood pressure drugs. However, there is little data to guide such therapy decisions.
