Blood Pressure Control & Endothelial Protection Matters for Hypertensive Patients with Additional Risk Factors.
About the event
Professor Neil R. Poulter, Chair in Preventive Cardiovascular Medicine, Imperial College London. Raised Blood Pressure (BP) continues to be the biggest contributor to the global disease burden and global mortality. Elevated Blood Pressure causes approximately 30K deaths per day! Even if we treat half of all hypertensive patients, half of the problem persists. Once diagnosed, how do we achieve BP control? With monotherapy being inadequate therapy for most patients, guidelines recommend starting with 2 drugs preferably in a single pill. Which 2 drug combination should we consider? If patients have 3 or more CV risk factors, should a statin be considered in addition to antihypertensive medications? It’s time to shift the focus to optimize CVD risk reduction in patients with Hypertension.
