Welcome to the Hypertension Knowledge Centre
The Hypertension Knowledge Centre has been designed as a comprehensive information platform for physicians.
Hypertension, an increasingly common and chronic disease, and its consequences like stroke, coronary heart disease, heart failure and renal damage mean an enormous financial burden for the community. The risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality is proportional to the degree of systolic or diastolic blood pressure elevation at any age and in either sex, and is markedly influenced by risk factors commonly associated with BP elevation.
Guidelines on modern management of hypertension reflect a more preventive approach with reduced target BP and risk factor evaluation. In addition to these guidelines, potential treatment options, publications and useful web links are provided.
Besides in CardioMetabolic, Solvay offers therapeutic options in NeuroScience, Gastroenterology, Men’s & Women’s Health and Influenza Vaccines.
