Hypertension is one of the main causes of mortality and morbidity in Indonesia. Resistant hypertension is a case of hypertension whose blood pressure remains high, after a change in lifestyle and obtaining management of 3 anti-hypertensive drugs with optimal doses with a different mechanism of action. The exact prevalence of HR is not known with certainty. The lack of data on the prevalence of resistant hy- pertension is the aim of this study to complete the data on the prevalence of resistant hypertension in UKI General Hospital. This research is descriptive. Data is taken from UKI General Hospital medical records from January to December 2019 with inclusion and exclusion criteria. Of the 1,030 in patients with hy- pertension, 139 patients are suffering from resistant hypertension. With the number of men and women not very different, the average age is 58 years and most cases are in the age group> 65 years. Chronic kidney failure (CKD) is the most common comorbid disease, followed by DM and heart failure. Patients with more resistant hypertension have very high initial blood pressure, and most use a combination of 3 drugs to control their blood pressure
