So this patient has a blood pressure of 175/115. Is that high or low? Anyone? High or low? High? Anyone else? You all agree? High or low? This patient, big fat bloke in fact. Is that a problem? Actually he's a Pacific Islander. Is his blood pressure a problem? Anyone? What do you think? Does he need tablets? Anyone? Anyone else? What about that table up the back there, you haven't said much. What? What? Sorry I can't hear you, say again? Yes, that's a good thought, although phaechromocytomas are rare. What else?
