Medical director Dr. Rosa Garcia Osuna. Nephrologist

Diagnosis, study and treatment of arterial hypertension

In the nephrology department we offer the study of hypertension and assessment of the global cardiovascular risk by evaluating risk factors, presence of target organ injury (hypertensive heart disease via electrocardiographic and echocardiographic register, ankle-arm index), accurate evaluation of the renal function and albuminuria.

To study HBP we use outpatient techniques to measure arterial pressure:

Arterial Blood Pressure Monitoring (ABPM)

  • Arterial Blood Pressure Automeasurement (ABPA)

Arterial hypertension (AHP) is one of the main risk factors that boost the chances of having cardiovascular diseases, and affects one third of the population between 35 and 65 years old and more than 50% of elderly people.
