Authors:
Ami Schattner

Am J Med 2022 Jun 4. Epub 2022 Jun 4.

The Faculty of Medicine, Hebrew University and Hadassah Medical School, Jerusalem, Israel. Electronic address:

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic systemic autoimmune disease characterized by an almost 10:1 female predominance, the presence of deleterious nuclear autoantibodies, a tendency for flare, and striking protean manifestations. Early diagnosis is associated with less damage accrual, lower costs and improved quality of life due to timely treatment. However, early disease may not uncommonly show nonspecific presentation, a single classification criterion, or an unusual organ involvement contributing to frequent, often substantial diagnostic delays.

Controversies in hypertension I: the Optimal Assessment of Blood Pressure Load and Implications for Treatment.

Am J Med 2022 May 27. Epub 2022 May 27.

Department of Medicine, Penn State University Heart and Vascular Institute; Penn State M.S Hershey Medical Center and College of Medicine, Hershey, Pennsylvania, USA.

The most important factor in treating hypertension is assessing an individual patient's true blood pressure load, the cornerstone being research-grade office determination. Office blood pressure should be supplemented with out-of-office measurement, including home and ambulatory monitoring (if available), which we consider complimentary and not interchangeable. Controversy remains for initiation of treatment of white-coat hypertension, where cardiovascular risk lies between normotension and sustained hypertension; antihypertensive therapy should be considered unless low cardiovascular risk, wherein pressures should be followed for progression to sustained hypertension.
