A collapse with hypertension and hypokalaemia

A 60 year old white man was admitted from the emergency department after an unwitnessed collapse and generalised weakness and malaise. He had no medical history of note and was taking no drugs. On clinical assessment he had hypertension, which had not previously been documented, with a blood pressure of 187/91 mm Hg. Blood tests showed severe hypokalaemia (2.1 mmol/L (reference range 3.6-5.0), having been normal (4.7) nine months earlier) and metabolic alkalosis (bicarbonate 38 mmol/L, 22-30). Random blood glucose was 6.0 mmol/L (3.5-7.8).

Can an increase in sodium activate RAAS?

If I understand correctly: RAAS is partly activated by a decrease in blood pressure. Sodium intake increases blood pressure. I would therefore think that an increase in sodium (such as from eating a bag of crisps) would not activate RAAS. However, I'm getting conflicting information in my pathophysiology notes. Anyone got any definitive thoughts?

What's the effect of taking blood pressure on both arms at once?

In hospital today, while I was taking a patient's blood pressure, another student asked if she could take her pressure on the other arm to practice. The patient didn't mind, but I thought it might be dangerous. Is this dangerous? What would happen if we pumped the cuff on both arms at the same time? Also, would this give an incorrect reading?

What is the concept?

Concept to my understanding means an idea which is essential or core to understanding the topic or subject. For example Blood Pressure, optmal, low or high means what? To understand blood pressure and how volume, pressure and flow dynamics affects it; I need to know the role of vessel diameter, volume and density of blood plus distance for the blood to travel. Would someone be able to comment that I understand and apply the word concept correctly? or be able to better explain what concept means?

Investigating hypertension

16 year old male, a secondary school student, arrives in the clinic and you find his blood pressure is 180/80. The history is unremarkable, no systemic symptoms or signs elicited (no headache, visual disturbance,chest pain, dizziness, collapse, urinary symptoms). The examination is normal. No significant previous medical history or family history of hypertension. He is not on any medications. He denies smoking or having taken illicit drugs. BMI is 25. What investigations are you going to order?
