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.
During this webinar Prof. Dr. Gianfranco Parati, Prof. Dr. Francesco Cappuccio, and Dr. Martino Pengo explain the importance of nocturnal blood pressure in cardiovascular risk assessment, how does sleep disturbance affects nighttime blood pressure, and how routine nocturnal blood pressure measurement can improve the management of hypertensive patients.
