Cochrane Hypertension is one of more than 50 review groups within Cochrane, an international organisation providing up-to-date information about the effects of health care interventions.
We are committed to helping people make well-informed decisions about the prevention and treatment of hypertension by preparing, maintaining and promoting the accessibility of systematic reviews of the effects of healthcare interventions for hypertension.
As of January 2017, The Cochrane Library contains 56 reviews and 34 protocols under Cochrane Hypertension and 38 additional titles have been registered by the group for authors intending to undertake systematic reviews.
- First-line combination therapy versus first-line monotherapy for primary hypertension
- Blood pressure lowering efficacy of beta-1 selective beta blockers for primary hypertension
- Antihypertensive pharmacotherapy for prevention of sudden cardiac death in hypertensive individuals
- Long-term effects of weight-reducing drugs in people with hypertension
