Dr. Bisognano's research focuses on cardiovascular risk factor reduction, with a particular interest on improving compliance with the national guidelines for the treatment of hypertension. He is also interested in the etiology of hypertensive urgencies and emergencies, including the development of evidence-based treatment protocols for office patients with severely elevated blood pressure but no evidence of ongoing target organ damage. Additionally, he is interested in a community-based education program in the evaluation and treatment of hypertension, noting that only a small fraction of patients with hypertension achieve the blood pressure goals suggested by the national guidelines.
