Features: Used Book in Good Condition
The importance of hypertension in children and adolescents is becoming incre- ingly recognized by physicians and scientists in the 21st century. However, in contrast to the attention that hypertension has received in the adult population for the past three decades since the first Joint National Committee (JNC) report, research and clinical knowledge that involves hypertension in children is still very much in its own childhood.
Pediatric Hypertension, edited by Drs. Portman, Sorof, and Ingelfinger, is undoubtedly the most up-to-date and clinically relevant contribution to the field of hypertension in children available because it brings together the numerous pathophysiologic, diagnostic, and therapeutic advances in the evaluation of high blood pressure in infants, children, and adolescents.
The editors have carefully organized their volume into sections that cover blood pressure regulation in infants and children, blood pressure measurement issues, pat- physiology and clinical assessment for essential and secondary forms of hypertension during childhood, and nonpharmacologic and pharmacologic approaches to the tre- ment of hypertension in children.
