are Survey and the National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey, researchers analyzed data from 12,064 patient visits (7,786 female, 4,275 male). They found that among patients with hypertension, women were less likely than men to:

* meet blood pressure control targets (54 percent vs. 58.7 percent),

* receive aspirin (20.7 percent vs. 35.5 percent),

* receive beta blockers (31.9 percent vs. 44.5 percent) or

* receive statins (28.5 percent vs. 35.3 percent) for secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease.

Less than half (20.7 percent of women, 46.6 percent of men) of all patients received recommended therapy across all conditions considered.
