Information provided by:
University of Washington
  Purpose
We are collecting baseline data on patients who have high blood pressure readings (160/100 or higher) at a 9-1-1 response by an EMT.

Condition
Hypertension

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Time Perspective: Retrospective
Official Title: SPHERE Hypertension Baseline Data Study

Further study details as provided by University of Washington:

Enrollment: 470
Study Start Date: February 2007
Study Completion Date: July 2007
Detailed Description:
We are collecting baseline data on patients who have high blood pressure readings (160/100 or higher) at a 9-1-1 response by an EMT. We want to understand what these patients currently remember occurring during the 9-1-1 response around their high blood pressure measure; if the patients seek a second reading; if the patients seek follow-up care as a result of the high blood pressure measure. We are also interested if patients trust EMTs as a provider of preventive health care. This baseline data will also allow us to more accurately measure the success of a future intervention study aimed at motivating subjects to receive a follow-up hypertension assessment from a physician after receiving a high blood pressure reading from an EMT.
