World Hypertension Day
The 17th May is World Hypertension day and this year's theme is
Measure Your Blood Pressure Accurately, Control It, Live Longer.
The ESC Council on Hypertension supports the World Hypertension Day and is pleased to recommend a selection of resources on hypertension management.
A study published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, shows that women with mildly elevated blood pressure in their early 40s have a two-fold risk of acute coronary syndromes in their 50s compared to their counterparts with normal blood pressure.
