BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Hypertensive crisis is a condition characterized by rapid and inappropriate symptomatic elevation of blood pressure (BP) that is commonly seen in Emergency Departments. Oral or sublingual captopril is commonly used in the Emergency Departments. The unpleasant taste of the sublingual drugs causes uncomfortable condition to the patient. Studies showing no difference between oral and sublingual captopril has been ignored so far. Herein we compared the oral and sublingual captopril efficiency in the hypertensive urgencies.
