Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is often called the silent killer, as it has no noticeable symptoms. Ochsner Medical Center is participating in a new clinical trial study, SIMPLICITY-HTN-3, for treating high blood pressure in those that medications don't work for.
If you have uncontrolled high blood pressure that has not been lowered with medication, call Ochsner at 842-6832 to see if you qualify for the study.
