In summary, the main finding of Kitai's study [8] is the surprisingly low prevalence of blood pressure measurement in the whole population. Many questions are raised by the study and a few answers are given. Clearly. a large-scale prospective study of the prevalence of hypertension and pre-hypertension in the general Israeli population is justified. Finally, since most physicians use electronic patient charts today, it is important that blood pressure measurements be entered. The files should be created such that the physician cannot proceed to introduce other medical information without first entering the BP measurement. This simple step will avert problems later.
