Hypertension Sydney 2012

Hypertension Sydney 2012 was held at Darling Harbour this year. It was the 24th meeting of the International Society of Hypertension (ISH) in collaboration with the 9th Congress of the Asian Pacific Society of Hypertension (APSH) and the 34th Annual Scientific Meeting of the High Blood Pressure Research Council of Australia (HBPRCA).

Hypertension Sydney 2012 offered a variety of workshops for select delegates and sponsors to take an active role in the meeting program via various workshops.

The program for the meeting was developed by both local and international program committees. These members have extensive expertise in a wide range of blood pressure-related topics, ranging from epidemiology and clinical research through to mechanistic studies. In addition to offering a wide-ranging program, the meeting provided opportunities for young investigators to present their latest work during the poster sessions, the mini-oral poster sessions and the e-poster sessions.

A large number of the programs included presentations on both Ambulatory BP Monitoring and Home BP monitoring; including their benefits over GP based BP monitoring. A&D Medical’s involvement was enhanced through the Hypertension Sydney Exhibition, held in Hall 5 at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre (SCEC) from 30th September through to the 4th October 2012.
