Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring in patients with hypertension in COVID-19 pandemic – The Study of European Society of Hypertension (ESH ABPM COVID-19 Study).
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic and the subsequent lockdown profoundly affected almost all aspects of daily life including health services worldwide. The traditional risk factors for increased blood pressure (BP) and hypertension may also demonstrate significant changes during the pandemic.
ESH Announces Comprehensive New Guidelines for the Management of Arterial Hypertension
The European Society of Hypertension (ESH) released the updated and expanded 2023 ESH Guidelines for the Management of Arterial Hypertension at the 32nd Annual European Meeting on Hypertension and Cardiovascular Protection Meeting in Milan, Italy.
The full final version of the guidelines is available on the Journal of Hypertension website.
We are very thankful for the continued support of the National Hypertension Societies across Europe and beyond. With their help, the 2021 ESH practice guidelines for office and out-of-office blood pressure measurement have been translated into various languages.
The dissemination of the guidelines is an important goal for ESH. The translation of the guidelines facilitates the diffusion of important information to improve the accuracy of the diagnosis of hypertension and thereby optimize its management.
The goal is to establish a European sustainable and multidisciplinary network of internationally renowned members for blood pressure research in children and adolescents. The initiative conveys 21 countries across Europe and America in a global vision to promote wide networks of excellence in research.
Blood Pressure Calculators. Two Blood Pressure Calculators, namely a Paediatric office blood pressure calculator and a Paediatric 24-h ambulatory blood pressure calculator have been created.
