By I. Feferman

Abstract

Because of the 10 percent incidence of hypertension in the adult population it is important to find an effective method for hypertension screening. A protocol is presented to screen for hypertension in the emergency department of a general hospital. Of 100 patients screened in our emergency, four asymptomatic hypertensives were found. Also, nine patients with a previous history of hypertension were found to be inadequately treated
