The new recommendations of blood pressure in people over 60 is 150/90. It used to be 140/90. This is significant. It seems more is not always better. “Experts also were concerned that any marginal benefits from reaching aggressive targets would be offset by side effects or unnecessary use of unproven treatments.” Once again, the big question is will the idiotic quality indicators change with this? If not, are we hurting our patients to get better scores and better bonuses? The answer is a resounding YES!!!!
