Optimization of Nocturnal Blood Pressure Assessment and Treatment – Innovation beyond ABPM


Measuring nocturnal blood pressure has become more important as many studies have demonstrated a significant correlation between nocturnal high blood pressure and organ damage and event prediction. Sleep apnea patients’ cardio system is under stress during the night; therefore, it is essential to understand and track their nocturnal BP.

This live webinar brings together three leading experts in nocturnal blood pressure management, and aims to best inform of its importance in cardiovascular risk assessment, educate on the impact of sleep disturbance, and disseminate best practice for blood pressure monitoring for hypertensive patients.

In addition to a series of informative presentations and engaging discussions, this interactive session also comprises a live audience Q&A, with the panel on hand to take your questions to best support you in achieving optimal patient outcomes.
