Update on managing hypercholesterolemia. The new NCEP guidelines.
AAOHN J 2002; 50(8):360-4AJ

Abstract

1. The Third Report of the National Cholesterol Education Program Expert Panel on Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Cholesterol in Adults (ATPIII) will significantly increase the number of Americans treated for hypercholesterolemia. 2. The ATPIII focuses on lowering low density lipoprotein cholesterol as a primary initiative and using exercise, diet, and pharmacotherapy as a means for lowering coronary heart disease and risks. 3. The new guidelines list low density lipoprotein cholesterol levels of less than 100 mg/dL as optimal for all clients. 4. The ATPIII places increased attention on high triglyceride levels (> 200 mg/dL) and on early detection and appropriate aggressive treatment for clients at risk for coronary heart disease and events.
