Abstract Hypertension is the leading preventable risk factor for premature death and disability worldwide. As a most common diagnosis, the purpose of this paper is to evaluate the procedures used in the emergency medical service in Delchevo for treatment and management of hypertension in a period of one year (in our case, last year - 2017) and compare them with the recommendations of the world organizations that are engaged in research of hypertension and improving the quality of patients with this condition, as well as reducing the rate and the occurrence of complications associated with hypertension. In order to achieve the set goals, we analyzed the data on recorded hypertensive cases from the medical diaries in the Emergency Service - Delchevo and compared them to guidelines for hypertensive emergencies, the reports of the Joint National Committee on prevention, detection, evaluation and treatment of hypertension, guidelines for treatment of hypertension from evidence-based medicine, given by the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Macedonia and other European and world guidelines. Obtained results showed different treatment of hypertension compared with recommended therapy from World guidelines. This is probably related to financial constraint and complicated procedures for introduction of new therapy, which significantly limit the possibility of doctors to gain experience with innovative drugs and treatment. Kew words: hypertension, therapy, guidelines, diagnosis
