Introduction to Hypertension Clinic
Care for High Blood Pressure
Health care providers at University of Utah Health realize how much impact high blood pressure (also called hypertension) can have on your health. At the Hypertension Clinic, located in the Cardiovascular Center, we treat this condition and help patients monitor chronic high blood pressure.
As a multi-specialty clinic, we provide you access to specialists from internal medicine, endocrinology, nephrology, vascular surgery, and cardiology to advise you on the best ways to manage your high blood pressure. Additionally, we consistently conduct research, which allows us to offer patients the most cutting-edge advances in treatments for hypertension.
- Individual evaluation - Whether you are referred by your primary care physician, another specialist, or have personal concerns about your blood pressure, the evaluations provided by the hypertension clinic are designed to present you with your best options for treatment.
- 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring studies - These studies give physicians the best information about your blood pressure from overnight changes to morning surges. They also provide the most accurate estimation of true blood pressure currently possible.
- Home blood pressure monitoring training - Your physician can help you learn to monitor your blood pressure at home or outside of the clinic.
