In clinical work and daily life, target organ damage caused by blood pressure ≥140/90 mm Hg (1 mm Hg=0.133 kPa) usually attracts attention, but target organ damage caused by blood pressure <140/90 mm Hg will often be ignored.Therefore, in order to improve the innovative concept and research orientation of hypertension, the research team proposed "longitudinal hypertension".This article found that the transverse hypertension emphasizes the "quantity" change caused by blood pressure ≥140/90 mm Hg, while the "longitudinal hypertension" emphasizes both "quantity" change and "quality" change of each individual through the introdution of the concept, diagnostic criteria and advantages of "longitudinal hypertension", similarities and differences between "longitudinal hypertension" and transverse hypertension.Therefore, as primary health caregivers, general practitioners should understand and master the essence, concept, diagnosis and treatment methods of "longitudinal hypertension".At the same time, the research team also hopes to discuss and improve the existence and application value of "longitudinal hypertension" with colleagues.
