News just in from our client, Urgent Care of the Palm Beaches about Hypertensive Emergency? Here is what you need to know

Elevated blood pressure (hypertension) is a common chronic condition, often treated in an urgent care setting. Identifying high blood pressure is important to avoid a hypertensive emergency, which can result in organ damage.

Hypertension vs. hypertensive emergency – what is the difference?

Hypertension is when you have blood pressure of over 140/90 that is sustained for some time. It is common, affecting approximately 40% of emergency room patients in the United States every year. If not managed appropriately, hypertension can turn into a hypertensive emergency.

A hypertensive emergency is less common than hypertension. A hypertensive crisis can result in organ failure and death. Usually, it is when you have blood pressure of over 180/120, plus evidence of end-stage organ damage. Evaluation and treatment are critical to prevent progression of the condition.
