Outdated BP guideline

Post by markrainey » Fri May 09, 2014 11:03 am

The DOT exam guidance makes issue with mild blood pressure elevations with minimal short term risk, such at 148/90. JNC-8 (JNC=Joint National Committee) now recommends no treatment for those 60 years and over with a blood pressure of 148/90. Yet the DOT guidelines recommend otherwise. Is anybody else frustrated?
