Minimum Systolic Brain Perfusion in the Control of Systemic Hypertension

Jose Maria Pereira de Godoy

The recommended goal of a systolic pressure under 130 mmHg in hypertensive diabetic patients results in a significant drop in blood pressure that often causes neurological symptoms, a condition not always considered in the clinical practice. A controlled reduction in blood pressure should be achieved by using antihypertensive drugs to reach the minimum pressure without symptoms. Although in this evaluation the main variable must be the systolic pressure, the diastolic pressure should not be ignored.
