High Blood Pressure: Its Variations and Control, A Manual for Practitioners covers aspects and consideration of blood pressure estimation and control. The book discusses the advantages and limitations of sphygmomanometry in clinical medicine and the best practical method of taking arterial pressures. The text describes the instruments employed in the estimation of arterial pressure; the fundamental physiological and physical factors on which clinical variations of blood pressure depend; and the physiological variations in arterial pressure. The classification of hyperpiesis; the nature, clinical features, types, and the pathology of hyperpiesia; and hypertonia are also considered. The book then tackles the causes and pathology of arteriosclerosis and the causation, significance, symptomatology, diagnosis, prognosis, prevention, and control of high arterial pressure. Simultaneous arterial pressures (brachial) in pulmonary tuberculosis; the relation of arterial pressure to life assurance; and the epochs in the clinical estimation of blood pressure are also looked into. Practitioners, teachers, and students of medicine will find the book invaluable.
