Here was analyzed the extent and structure of cognitive disorders in outpatient conditions by the data of examination of 118 hypertension patients stage II with arterial hypertension of 1-2 degrees, which were under the supervision of General Practitioners. Neuropsychological examination was carried out by MMSE (Mini-Mental State Examination) and FAB (Frontal Assessment Battery) scales, verbal memory was studied by the method of Luria, concentration and speed of sensorimotor reactions - by techniques of Schulte and Rybakov. It was found that 28.8% of patients had cognitive disorders, mainly of neurodynamic nature, in particular, the ability of concentration and speed of psychomotor reactions was reduced. The presence of verbal memory disorders of varying severity associated with hypertension was revealed. Analysis of medical records testifies to the absence of attention to this issue in rehabilitation programs of hypertensive patients at the primary stage of care. The importance of timely diagnosis of cognitive disorders as a marker of early disorders of cerebral circulation and the functional state of the brain, the target organ in hypertension of 1-2 degrees was demonstrated.
