The following topics with examples are included:

  • Essential (primary) hypertension
  • Hypertension & hypertensive heart disease
  • Hypertension & chronic kidney disease
  • Hypertension, hypertensive heart disease, and chronic kidney disease
  • Tobacco use or exposure in individuals with hypertensive diseases
  • Coding for secondary hypertension
