Abstract: It is estimated that 50% of cardiovascular disease is attributable to high blood pressure. There is an increasing appreciation that blood pressure control must be viewed as only one component of a holistic approach to the care of the patient with hypertension, for the reason that a high percentage of hypertensive patients have other cardiovascular risk factors. As a response to the challenge of controlling hypertension and hypertension-related cardiovascular disease, some guidelines have been published for different international organizations. During the first half of 2003, the National High Blood Pressure Education Program, coordinated by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, released the Joint National Committee seventh report and almost simultaneously the European Society of Hypertension and European Society of Cardiology issued their 2003 Guidelines for the Management of Hypertension. Toward the end of the year the World Health Organization/International Society of Hypertension updated previous editions. The goal of this review is to reiterate the key components of the three guidelines for an optimal treatment in hypertension.
