Synopsis: 
Screening for elevated blood pressure in the elderly is recommended, since the prevalence of hypertension increases with age, and can reduce the incidence of morbidity and mortality. A careful and individualized approach is needed when treating hypertension in the elderly, taking into account the presence of co-morbid diseases, drug interaction, side effects, lifestyle and functional state.
