Blood pressure (BP) categories for adults were recently updated in the 2017 Guideline for the Prevention, Detection, Evaluation and Management of High Blood Pressure in Adults. This change means that more patients will be diagnosed with hypertension and require more accurate BP readings in the office or at home. This video addresses the key components necessary for an accurate BP measurement and can be freely shared with your colleagues and staff.

This is an exciting time for diabetes management with many of the pharmacologic options providing more than one treatment benefit.
