Case Example

An 18-year-old male is seen in the clinic for a preparticipation physical evaluation (PPE). Physical examination shows blood pressure of 145/90 mmHg and a grade 3/6 systolic murmur. Records show that one year ago during his PPE, the patient had high normal blood pressure and a grade 2/6 systolic murmur but was cleared to exercise and was told to limit his salt intake. He is asymptomatic.
