Marrakech Interview: B.M. Egan (USA): Managing hypertension in a black population

Questions covered in this interview:

What are the factors that make hypertension so prevalent in the African-American population?

Are these factors also relevant to black populations in other parts of the world, for example in African countries?

Do the problems with hypertension in the African-American population also relate to other ethnic groups, for example Hispanics or Asians?

What reduces the rate of hypertension in the African-American population?

Why do you think African-Americans experience a more rapid transition from pre-hypertension to hypertension than Caucasians? Do you advocate treating pre-hypertension in either race?

Do you think the findings of the SPRINT trial should influence blood pressure goals for African-American patients with hypertension?
