INTERACTIVE CLINICAL CASE
Clinical management of hypertension associated with high cardiovascular risk
Hypertension is a common disease, which is highly prevalent in the general population (occurring in around 20–30% of adults). The clinical approach to hypertensive disease should not be limited to just normalization of blood pressure values, but should also include an assessment of global cardiovascular risk. Guidelines make very clear that the risk for patients with hypertensive is not limited to their blood pressure values, but also depends on the concomitant presence of other cardiovascular risk factors, cardiac, vascular or renal organ damage and associated disease(s), including coronary artery disease or heart failure. Through an illustrative, interactive clinical case presentation, Professor Tadic will discuss in detail and in context, the relationship between hypertension and cardiovascular risk, including the basic diagnostic steps that are needed for the correct clinical approach and the choice of therapeutic options for patients.
By attending this online interactive activity, learners will be able to:
- Acquire information about the relationship between blood pressure values and global cardiovascular risk
- Examine the best clinical approach to identify the main conditions associated with increased cardiovascular risk in hypertensive patients
- Discuss the best therapeutic approaches for hypertensive patients based on their risk profiles
- Define the best pharmacological options for patients with very high cardiovascular risk including hypertensive patients with coronary artery disease or heart failure
This activity is designed for Cardiologists, General Practitioners, Internists and those treating patients with cardiovascular disorders.
