A 55 yr old female had ischemic stroke n presented 2 days later with a BP of 210/110
So there was no need to giv antihypertensives as d BP was below 220 systolic or 110 diastolic. So my questions are
1. If the patient was normotensive before d stroke when do u need to start reducin d BP if it still maintain it's present level ( ie. How many hours or days post stroke do u start controllin a persistent high BP)
2. If the patient was previously hypertensive when do u start antihypertensive to prevent rebound hypertension
