Diagnosis and management of hypertension by physicians in the Federal Republic of Germany.
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).
