abstract

  • 1. Eighty unselected hypertensive subjects were investigated at a cost of $78.00 per patient, in a short out-patient study programme. Seven (9%) were found to have a cause for their hypertension; incidental abnormalities were found in twenty-two (28%). 2. The combination of clinical selection and planned out-patient investigation should detect all patients with secondary hypertension.
