Informative lecture. But I am still chuckling to myself over 'Africans traveled to America a long time ago.'

This was a good lecture - I think Dr Tariq explained the key epidemiological issues very well. 

Its a real pity that the video recording was intermittent. As these videos are viewed by students around the world, and re recording may be difficult, may I suggest that there is a standardised way in which the various lecturers make the video recoridng? At least there is a good "baseline".

Thank you again.

Thank you George for your suggestion. Yes, there is some video editing to help compile the videos before posting them. drBeen staff will try to accomodate them. 

Dr. Anam Tariq from the John Hopkins School of Medicine's department of nephrology discusses epidemiology for hypertension. This is the foundational lecture for the management of hypertension.

The agenda for this discussion is the following:

  1. High level blood pressure (BP) pathophysiology.
  2. BP as a risk factor for the chronic kidney disease.
  3. Descriptive epidemiology
  4. Trial evidence
    1. Effects of specific anti-hypertensive medications.


Learning objectives of this video are the following: 
1. Blood pressure--Pathophysiology
2. Blood pressure (BP) as a risk factor for CKD (Chronic
Kidney Disease)
• Descriptive epidemiology
• Trial evidence
3. Effects of specific anti-hypertensive medications
