This session will be interactive, stimulating and should change your practice. I will present a real patient with metabolic syndrome and hypertension, who is determined to address these issues. VG accepts that previous lifestyle choices damaged his health and he wants to make amends. He is at the opposite end of the spectrum to the non-adherent patient. We will look at recent advances in evidence, which will improve his hypertension control whilst also addressing his metabolic concerns. Furthermore we will look at recent guidelines regarding the place of hypertension in the assessment of a patient facing elective non-cardiac surgery.
