Digital health in older adults for the prevention and management of cardiovascular diseases and frailty. A clinical consensus statement from the ESC Council for Cardiology Practice/Taskforce on Geriatric Cardiology, the ESC Digital Health Committee and the ESC Working Group on e-Cardiology
Survey on arterial hypertension management: a report from the ESC Council for Cardiology Practice and the ESC Council on Hypertension
77.4% of 1458 responders to the survey consider Guidelines targets of blood pressure right. Low patient’s compliance, awareness of hypertension (HT) risk, and, at a lower degree, physician inertia, represent the main treatment challenges in reaching BP goals to most respondents, while treatment effectiveness is not in question.
Management of hypertension in the elderly and frail patient
Blood pressure targets in hypertensive older and frail patients are not completely defined and specific individual evaluations of co-morbidities and frailty, together with weighted consideration of drug use, may help in finding the appropriate therapy
