Hypertensive Emergency and Urgency Hypertensive urgency (HU) refers to a marked elevation in BP without endorgan damage, and can often be treated as resistant hypertension with close outpatient follow-up. Hypertensive emergency (HE) is characterized by HTN resulting in acute end-organ damage, as opposed to the more chronic effect of long-standing HTN. HE would be atypical with a SBP <150 mmHg, or DBP <100 mmHg, and most typically BP exceeds 180/100 mmHg.
