Board Course vision
Effective management of hypertensive patients is associated with a reduction in cardiovascular mortality, stroke and myocardial infarction. For all hypertensive patients, blood pressure reduction to an optimal range is the goal. Yet, despite treatment with ≥ 3 different antihypertensive drugs, in some patients, blood pressures remain above target.
Under these circumstances, a systematic holistic approach, including lifestyle counselling, antihypertensive medication adjustments and device-based therapies is key.
