in risk factors for IHD in KAPLAN its written cardiovascular events risk increases with bp over 110/75 .
but its normal bp! how? and we are supposed to consider patients with bp over 110/75 as risk factor?
Yes its the same in the newest version, well, what I think they mean is in general terms that the risk goes up after 110/75....they don't mean that EVERY pt with 110/75 will have an increased risk (as in a HIGH risk)....unless there's a pt with comorbid conditions with whom you have to be careful, but the general rule is that a pt with uncontrolled HTN is at a higher risk, but again you have to keep in mind the BP recommendations for ppl with IHD + Diabetes etc!
don't waste your time on this, remember the MAIN RFs
