Abstract: 
The paper gives the data from the Registry for Arterial Hypertension. It discusses the problems in the assessment of the quality and efficiency of therapeutic and preventive measures implemented by primary health care physicians for patients with arterial hypertension. Particular emphasis is laid on the definition of a cardiovascular risk as its underestimation by the physician leads to an incorrect choice of management tactics for patients with arterial hypertension.
