This is a valuable, informative review of the use of ACE inhibitors in treating hypertension in general (family) practice. It also serves as a reference for basic information on the pharmacology and mode of action of this relatively novel class of drugs. The general approach reflects the needs of practitioners by emphasizing the pragmatic view. Epidemiology and pharmacology are included in the context of what a general practitioner needs to know for the effective treatment and management of patients at risk from hypertension. The book adopts an easy-to-use layout with the frequent use of tables and charts to present complex information in an easily assimilated way.
