Overview

This webinar will bring together two leading experts in hypertension management. It aims to inform on the importance of obtaining accurate nocturnal blood pressure in cardiovascular risk assessment, educate on the impact of sleep disturbance, and disseminate best practice for blood pressure monitoring for hypertensive patients.

High blood pressure (hypertension) is an important cause of cardiovascular diseases. Measuring blood pressure accurately is a fundamental pre-requisite to good clinical care for preventing and managing hypertension. Blood pressure varies throughout day and night following a circadian pattern. Current guidelines refer to daytime blood pressure for diagnostic and therapeutic actions. However, it is now clear that nocturnal blood pressure is an important predictor of organ damage and cardiovascular events. Several conditions are associated with raised blood pressure at night, of which sleep apnoea is the most common. It is therefore essential to measure blood pressure at night.

In addition to two informative presentations and engaging discussion, this interactive session will include a live audience Q&A, with the panel on hand to take your questions to best support you in achieving optimal patient outcomes.

  • Innovations in obtaining night blood pressure in daily home practice
  • To understand how easy, it is to use a blood pressure monitor in the home setting
  • To understand the usability of new devices (e.g. NightView) compared to 24h ambulatory blood pressure monitoring
