Transient high BP recording are quite common. It is important to recognize, whether the recorded high BP is of episodic or primary hypertension. Varieties of stress factors can influence high BP recordings. These reversible factors include smoking, sleeplessness, alcohol, stressful work atmosphere, medications and drug abuse. It is essential to identify above reversible factors, before we label a person said to have Primary hypertension. Correction or elimination of risk factors can normalize BP. Labeling person as Hypertension not only adds increased incidence of disease also subjects for unwarranted treatment and drug toxicities. Periodic follow up and elimination of reversible factors causing high BP, decides further prognosis of transient hypertension.
