Europe’s biggest blood pressure conference in London April 26-29
25 April 2012
Europe’s largest hypertension conference, the 22nd Scientific
Meeting of the European Society of Hypertension (ESH) will take place in
London, UK, from April 26 to 29, 2012.
Around 5000 delegates are expected to attend. A major portion of the
program will concentrate on original research, and updates on
current topics. The meeting will take place at the ICC, Excel,
London, in the heart of London’s Royal Docks.
Hypertension — high blood pressure — is the most important
preventable risk factor for premature death worldwide. According to
the World Health Organisation, hypertension ranks above even tobacco
use as a risk factor for preventable death. It is estimated that 25%
of the world’s adult population — around 1.25 billion people — will
suffer from hypertension by 2025.
It is a major risk factor for stroke, heart attacks, aneurysms,
and other conditions. Nearly 13% of all global deaths (7.5 million
per year) are attributable to hypertension. In the UK, around 16
million adults (30% of the UK adult population) suffer from
hypertension, leading to more than UK 62,000 deaths per year.
