Owing to an electronic problem, we had to retype many of the symbols in this article by Peter J Watkins, and inevitably we slipped up on one (19 April, pp 874-6). The fourth paragraph in the section on blood pressure management should read: “Blood pressure > 140/80 mm Hg [not < 140/80 mm Hg] should be treated if there is evidence of organ damage… The target pressure is < 140/80 mm Hg.”
