|Hypertension is commonly found as a symptom of many major diseases and the possibility of monitoring blood pressure can often be of paramount importance for the successful treatment of these diseases.
Hypertension is also a dangerous disease itself, because it not only leads to progression of the underlying cause (such as with renal disease), but it can also cause damage to other organs, like the eye, the heart, the kidney and the brain. Especially the eyes and the heart are frequently affected, thus a thorough examination of these organ systems is indicated in any patient, being diagnosed with hypertension.
The book covers all topics relevant to blood pressure including physiology, hypotension, hypertension, therapy of blood pressure abnormalities, economics of blood pressure measurement and, most importantly, how to get a reliable and repeatable blood pressure reading.
In order to offer the best support, this book also includes a very valuable 17 min. CD-Rom showing videos on how to reliable measure blood pressure in dogs and cats. The CD also demonstrates how to evaluate the eye and heart for endorgan damage.
`This pioneering text will stand as a gateway to bring blood pressure (...) to position of importance and pertinence in contemporary veterinary practice.`
Larry Cowgill/ Davis, President Elect of the Veterinary Blood Pressure Society (VBPS)
