Guidelines of arterial hypertension treatment based on individualised expected outcomes are not available for frail older persons. In this paper, we review the evidence, concerning management of arterial blood pressure (BP) in frail older patients.

Lenient BP goals are generally recommended for older persons with moderate or severe frailty, multimorbidity and limited life expectancy. To this aim, there may be a need for deintensification of antihypertensive treatment.. To read the full article, log in using your NHS OpenAthens details.
