Diagnosis and management of hypertension by physicians in two large cities in the northwest of Germany were studied in 1988.
Three hundred and fifteen out-of-hospital physicians (71%) responded to a mailed questionnaire.
Sixty-eight per cent reported measuring blood pressure at almost each patient visit and 36% involved allied health professionals in the measurement process.
Only 63% used disappearance of sound for the diastolic reading (phase V).
