Summary of "Hypertension Urgencies and Emergencies: The GEAR Project."

Acute elevations in blood pressure (BP), usually defined as ≥ 180/110 mmHg, may present with highly heterogeneous profiles ranging from absence of symptoms to life-threatening target organ damage. In most recent years the diagnostic approach and the treatment of hypertension have gained interest by patients and physicians. The GEAR project (Gestione delle Emergenze e urgenze in ARea critica, management of hypertensive emergencies and hypertensive urgencies in the emergency setting) was proposed by the group of Young Investigators of the Italian Society of Hypertension as a survey aimed to evaluate the awareness, diagnosis and treatment of hypertensive emergencies and urgencies in Italy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A nonselective alpha-adrenergic antagonist. It is used in the treatment of hypertension and hypertensive emergencies, pheochromocytoma, vasospasm of RAYNAUD DISEASE and frostbite, clonidine withdrawal syndrome, impotence, and peripheral vascular disease.

A condition in pregnant women with elevated systolic (>140 mm Hg) and diastolic (>90 mm Hg) blood pressure on at least two occasions 6 h apart. HYPERTENSION complicates 8-10% of all pregnancies, generally after 20 weeks of gestation. Gestational hypertension can be divided into several broad categories according to the complexity and associated symptoms, such as EDEMA; PROTEINURIA; SEIZURES; abnormalities in BLOOD COAGULATION and liver functions.

Hypertension due to RENAL ARTERY OBSTRUCTION or compression.

The thoracolumbar division of the autonomic nervous system. Sympathetic preganglionic fibers originate in neurons of the intermediolateral column of the spinal cord and project to the paravertebral and prevertebral ganglia, which in turn project to target organs. The sympathetic nervous system mediates the body's response to stressful situations, i.e., the fight or flight reactions. It often acts reciprocally to the parasympathetic system.

Hypertension that occurs without known cause, or preexisting renal disease. Associated polymorphisms for a number of genes have been identified, including AGT, GNB3, and ECE1. OMIM: 145500
