My Vlog: Hypertension Guidelines: Clear as Mud! | Heart and Vascular Health |

I've been trying to make sense of guidelines now for a couple of months. We had lipid guidelines that came out in November at the American Heart Association (AHA) meeting, and then in December we had the publication of the new Joint National Committee (JNC 8) guidelines, [1] also called the "2014 hypertension guidelines," and I'm trying to make sense of it.
