ABSTRACT

Objective: To evaluate target BP achievement in the hypertensive patients during the course of 2 months. Methods: This Prospective Observational study was performed on 223 eligible study participants. The blood pressure, co-morbidities and common drugs prescribed in hypertensive patients were noted and analyzed. Results: Among 260 patients, 230 met the inclusion criteria, and 223 came for follow-up whose data was recorded. It was found that the male population was more prone to hypertension, in the age group of 51-60 years. The mean systolic BP and diastolic BP of the study population were 127.8027±18.293 and 79.77578±12.47217 respectively. It was found that 120 patients achieved the target BP on baseline were as 103 haven’t, but on final visit (visit-2) 211 have achieved target BP and 12 haven’t. Of the total number of the hypertensive patients DM was found to be most commonly occurred co-morbidity for 69 patients (30.49%). Out of 223 prescriptions beta- blockers (47.87 %) were found to be the most prescribed medication. Conclusion: The control of hypertension is an unavoidable component for the management of hypertensive patient. Anti-hypertensive treatment appears to be extremely useful in protecting the patient from other heart related complications. Even-though the awareness is quite high, attainment of target BP doesn’t attain at the pinnacle which can be improved by effective counseling.
