Hypertension is a global public health issue, affecting one billion people world wide. Uncontrolled high blood pressure can cause serious complications, such as stroke and coronary artery disease. The critical step of treatment of hypertension is lifestyle changes . However, if non - drug treatment is ineffective, the choice of drug treat ment is determined by its safety and efficacy. A short survey prior to the beginning of this paper pointed to the fact that hypertension is the most common diagnosis in the emergency medical service in Delchevo and because it is the cause of more serious c omplications, we decided to analyze the way of treatment of hypertension and compare it with the recommendations of the relevant world guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of hypertension. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the procedures used in the emergency medical service in Delchevo for the 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 on hyper tension and improving the quality of patients with hypertension, as well as reducing the rate of hypertension and the occurrence of complications - cardiovascular diseases. In order to achieve the goals of this paper, we analyzed the data on recorded hyper tensive cases from the medical diaries for medical records in the Emergency Service - Delcevo and we compared them to guide - lines for hypertensive emergencies, the reports of the Joint National Committee on prevention, detection, evaluation and treatment o f hypertension, guidelines for treatment of hypertension from evidence - based medicine, given by the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Macedonia and more other European and world guides. The obtained results show the application of somehow different tre atment from the usual recommended treatment for the treatment of hypertension, but it is a therapy that gives the desired effects, has not shown serious side effects and is applied as such, for many years now. The treatment is standardized and approved by the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Macedonia. Keywords: emergency medical service, hypertension, therapy, recommendations. .
