Consider this

An inaccurate diagnosis of high blood pressure could lead to:

  • The over-prescribing blood pressure-lowering medication, which may result in adverse events associated with hypertension;

  • The prescription of lifestyle changes for patients who may not truly be suffering from blood pressure-related conditions;

  • Additional modifications in the patients’ quality of life.
