米国高血圧学会のガイドラインの一部に変更予告

EW YORK CITY -- Confusion about conflicting guidance on the management of high blood pressure continues, with some clinicians calling for a "guide to the guidelines" at the American Society of Hypertension meeting here. Although there is much agreement among the several guideline documents from the U.S. and abroad, one conflict stands above the rest: the recommendation to loosen the threshold at which treatment is initiated in patients 60 and older without diabetes or chronic kidney disease -- to a systolic pressure of 150 mm Hg or higher or a diastolic pressure of 90 mm Hg or higher -- and to make the target blood pressure below that level. That recommendation was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association at the end of last year by "the panel members appointed to the Eighth Joint National Committee (JNC 8)," a panel with no backing at the time of publication by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) or any other group.
