Hypertension: Causes, Diagnosing and Treating High Blood Pressure

Abstract Mohamed Ben-Eltriki,Alan Cassels,Juan Erviti &James M. Wright 

Clinical practice guidelines are assumed to be based on the best available evidence using the principles of evidence-based medicine. Because hypertension is a global problem and the global body of high-quality evidence is available to all, we question the justification for individual countries developing their own guidelines. Unfortunately, many countries have indeed developed and published country-specific hypertension guidelines [1]. We use this fact as an opportunity to explore whether countries use a similar evidence-based process and avoid bias due to conflicts of interest.
