    Article, Communication - En anglais


    Treatment of raised blool pressure in the population : session I : results from different countries. Paris, FRA, 1996/12/11.

    The Canadian Heart Health Survey, in which all 10 Canadian provinces participated using a standardized protocol, provides data from 23,129 randomly selected participants.

    The hypertension component of this survey indicates a prevalence of 22% ; among these hypertensives, 59% were aware of their elevated blood pressure status.

    The breakdown of aware hypertensives indicates that 16% of those were treated and controlled, 24% were treated but not controlled, and 19% were neither treated nor controlled.

    In terms of drug prescription pattern, angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors, including angiotensin II antagonists, command the maximum market share of 27.7% ($36 million), followed by diuretics, calcium channel blockers, bêta-blockers, and others.

    Although hypertension awareness and control have improved in the past 25 years, sustained efforts are warranted to control hypertension in Canada.
