CME Lecture by Dr. Mansoor Ahmad
Dr. Mansoor Ahmad, Consultant Cardiologist delivered a lecture on “Relationship Among Morning Blood Pressure Surge, 24-hour Blood Pressure Variability & Cardiovascular Outcomes.” to the General Practitioners, Faculty & Staff of Medicare Heart Center. During the program he informed that BP normally fluctuates during the day and can vary from day to day in response to environmental challenges, e.g., stress, activity, carrying out tasks. Over the last 30 years rates of CVD mortality have fallen in many parts of the world due to improvements in managing modifiable CV risk factors. There is growing evidence that morning surge in BP predisposes patients to adverse vascular outcomes particularlyacute coronary syndrome, cardiac arrhythmias, sudden cardiac death, all-cause mortality, and stroke.
