Summary: For non-pregnant patients with an asymptomatic “hypertensive urgency” (systolic blood pressure  ≥180 mm Hg or diastolic blood pressure ≥110 mm Hg) outpatient management appears to be associated a lower rate of hospitalization over the following 30 days than inpatient management, with no increased risk of major adverse cardiovascular events (ie, acute coronary syndrome, stroke or transient ischemic attack).
