This is not the normal population group that I work with, but I found it a very interesting discussion of studies that support ACE/ARB usage for management of CV events as well as a very well narrated explanation of the various guidelines currently in practice. Two things I plan to learn more about are chlorthalidone and "dippers". I'm curious to see if what others in my organization know.
