Abstract

Resistant hypertension affects a minority of treated hypertensive patients, yet the resulting target organ damage causes disproportionate morbidity and increased risk of cardiovascular events. The clinical features and efforts to adjust drug treatment in a resistant hypertensive patient are described. As demonstrated, serial hemodynamic measurements using thoracic bioimpedance may provide a rationale for selection of effective combination antihypertensive therapy. (CHF. 2000)
