  1. Who wants to bet a systolic pressure of 100 mmHg will be classified as hypertensive at some point in the future, as “more and better data” is collected and “evaluated”?

  2. I am doing me thesis in Adherence to hypertensive meds. My patients were one diagnosed on the basis of JNC-7. In few weeks I will analyzing the data. Should I categorize my patients based on the JNC-7 or JNC-8 during the analysis? That will certainly increase the prevalence of cases with uncontrolled hypertension but how much difference is it going to make?
