Hypertensive emergency is the sudden elevation of blood pressure with signs of damage to the target organs such as the brain, kidneys and cardiovascular system. Hypertensive emergency medications are the immediate treatment required to reduce elevated blood pressure to prevent further damage to the organs. In a hypertensive emergency, acute organ damage has already occurred, and it requires blood reduction within one hour to prevent further damage to organs. Patients need effective medications to lower the elevated blood pressure and to protect target organ function. Neurologic end-organ damage due to hypertensive emergencies includes cerebral infarction, subarachnoid haemorrhage and others. Cardiovascular end-organ damage includes myocardial infarction, ventricular dysfunction, aortic dissection and others. With the advent of hypertensive emergency medications, the incidence of hypertension emergencies has decreased. Patients need rapidly acting medication administered intravenously to lower the elevated blood pressure.
The traditional drug for treating hypertensive emergency is sodium nitroprusside. The amount of dosage and the drug choice varies according to the type of disorder. Patients with acute myocardial infarction need to be treated with intravenous esmolol. There are several drugs to choose from for the management of hypertensive emergencies, which include nitroglycerin, labetalol, fenoldopam, nicardipine and clevidipine, among others. According to NCBI, total hypertensive emergencies have increased by 16.2% per year from 2006 to 2013.
