PEME advice: Hypertension
Hypertension is currently the second most frequent reason for PEME failure and the illness alone represents 8% of all unfit decisions. Hypertension is a constant cause of crew illness incidents and can lead to heart disease, stroke, vascular dementia and chronic kidney disease. In 2014 it was estimated that Hypertension cost the NHS in the UK over £2 Billion in health care services and medications.
