The aim of this thesis is to make a clinical investigaiton of patients with increased blood pressure or hypertension, with the armamentarium of a general practitioner and without the aid of laboratory and radiological investigations. All the patients were forty years of age or over, and were selected in the ordinary routine of a country general practice during a period of two years. They were all examined on several occassiona, and thus were excluded the more temporary types of increased blood pressure. In addition to a general investigation of the signs and symptoms present, particular attention was paid to the age, sex, occupation, habits auch as eating, drinking, and smoking, height, witght, and body build, medical history, family medical history, urine, cardio-vascular system, and the fate of the patients, with a view to establishing a relationship, if any, between these and increased blood pressure.
