Is an ER visit advisable for elevated blood pressure level?

Hi there: I just came from a follow up appointment from a knee surgery of 16 days ago and my blood pressure is 151 over 107. My primary care put me on Lisinopril 10 mg on 10/19/18 due to it be higher then that during surgery. I have left a message with my primary care who is out of the office. Should I go to the ER is what I am wondering. thank you cindy

Hello,

After going through your medical query I understand your concern and I would like to tell you that high blood pressure can be an emergency condition if it is more than 180/100 but BP around 150/100 you can go in OPD need not to go in ER.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Bhanu Partap, Cardiologist
