Case Study
Henry Brusca is a 68-year-old, married father of 7 who was in relatively good health until 3 weeks ago. At that time, he visited the emergency room with the complaint of “just not feeling right.” His BP on admission was 170/118, so he was admitted to the coronary care unit with the diagnosis of uncontrolled HTN. His BP was controlled with medication, and he was discharged several days later. He is now being seen for follow-up care and management of HTN. Because Mr. Brusca is newly diagnosed with HTN, you will need to complete a history and thorough cardiovascular examination.
