A 74-year-old man with a history of hypertension and hypertensive heart disease, taking lisinopril, hydrochlorothiazide, and a beta-blocker, presents to his primary care physician for a routine physical examination. He has no symptoms. His blood pressure is 190/100 mm Hg, and the rest of the exam is unremarkable. An ECG is obtained. The patient is sent to the emergency department, where his blood pressure is still elevated.
