One medication can reduce blood pressure by 5.1 mmHg over 12 months.1 Of course, this can be difficult to achieve because 50% of all patients become non-adherent within that time frame.2
Small changes can make a big difference in a patient’s life. In this case, just a 5 mmHg reduction in blood pressure can reduce the risk of major adverse cardiovascular events by 10%.1
All categories experience the same relative risk reduction, including patients with normal or elevated blood pressure, those in stage 1 or 2, and those experiencing hypertensive crisis.1
This quiz is inspired by findings from “Pharmacological blood pressure lowering for primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease across different levels of blood pressure,” which was published in The Lancet.1
