Hypertension

Essential Hypertension The introduction of the sphygmomanometer into clinical medicine by Samuel Siegfried von Basch (1837–1905) in 1893 led to the recognition of ‘essential hypertension’. He made over 100,000 blood pressure estimations and gave the name ‘latent arteriosclerosis’ to what is now known as essential hypertension. Continued hypertension as a cause of athersclerosis was described by Henri Huchard (1844–1910) of Paris in 1887. The subject was extensively studied by Thomas Clifford Allbutt (1836–1925) in England around 1900, and Huchard in 1899. Theodore Caldwell Janeway (1872–1917) did work on it in America in 1904. The malignant phase was described by T. Fahr of Berlin in 1925. Racial predisposition was studied by Harrisof America who found that it was rare in Chinese and Orientals, in 1927. He also found that it was rarely found in Africans, whereas it was very common in blacks living in cities of America. Nye in 1937 noted that hypertension was completely absent in Australian Aborigines. Sir George White Pickering (1904–1980), Regius professor of medicine at Oxford in 1956, pointed out the protein nature of renin and its role in hypertension. His important work, The Nature of Hypertension, was published in 1960.
