Medical Mnemonics for secondary causes of hypertension - "CHAPS"

Medical Mnemonics – Secondary Causes of Hypertension


It’s Medical Mnemonics Monday! Today’s focus is on the secondary causes of hypertension.


Following up on the secondary causes of hypertension blog post from last week, we focus on a medical mnemonic for the same. Secondary causes of hypertension can be remembered by the mnemonic “CHAPS”
  • C = Cushing’s Syndrome
  • H = Hyperaldosteronism (aka Conn’s syndrome)
  • A = Aorta coarctation
  • P = Phaeochromocytoma
  • S = Stenosis of renal arteries
Check out the list of the previous Medical Mnemonics here.
