"Essential Hypertension" is diagnosed when no specific cause for the elevated blood pressure can be found. A normal blood pressure for most adults is less than 120/80 mm Hg. If an individuals blood pressure is 140/90 mm Hg or above, that individual is said to have hypertension or high blood pressure. High blood pressure is a leading risk factor for coronary heart disease, congestive heart failure, renal disease and stroke. Controlling one's blood pressure can help prevent these diseases.

This measure assesses the percentage of patients 18-85 years of age who have a diagnosis of uncomplicated essential hypertension and whose blood pressure was adequately controlled (less than 140/90 mm Hg).
