Impact of Preventive Cardiology on Blood Pressure

2020, N = 294

Patients had a baseline diastolic blood pressure (BP) of 90 mm HG or higher or a systolic BP of 140 mm HG or higher at baseline. Baseline is defined as the patient's first visit. Follow-up data are from the most recent visit. Patients included in these data had at least 2 follow-up visits in the past 2 years.

These outcomes represent data from 2020. Blood pressure values were somewhat limited due to the increased use of virtual visits because of COVID-19.

In 2020, preventive cardiology patients with elevated BP experienced reductions in both systolic and diastolic BP.
