Norman M Kaplan

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Anxiety, overtreatment, inappropriate combination therapy, and noncompliance are all characterized as prevalent etiologic factors in so-called resistant hypertension. But perhaps the most common problem that expresses itself as resistant hypertension is failure to adequately control intravascular volume. The key point is that a cause for resistance is almost always discoverable.
