Image Caption Generalizability of results from the Systolic Blood Pressure Intervention Trial (SPRINT) to the US adult population.
Description Adults at high risk for cardiovascular disease who receive intensive systolic blood pressure control have significantly lower rates of death and cardiovascular disease events than those who receive standard control. However, the lifetime health benefits and health care costs associated with intensive control are not known. Bress, with Supiano, Cheung, and colleagues, enhanced population health by defining what the Systolic Blood Pressure Intervention Trial (SPRINT) and the 2017 ACC/AHA blood pressure guidelines mean for clinical practice and public health. The authors found that 1) intensive blood pressure control is cost-effective, regardless of whether the benefits were reduced after five years or persisted for the patient's remaining lifetime, and 2) if fully implemented in eligible U.S. adults, intensive blood pressure treatment could prevent >100,000 deaths per year.
