Clinical Practice Session

Hypertension Challenges across the Spectrum of CKD

November 18, 2016 | 04:30 PM - 06:30 PM

Location: W375B

Session Description

General nephrologists often see patients across the full spectrum of CKD—from early stages of disease all the way through the various forms of RRT. The coexistence of CKD with hypertension, furthermore, greatly increases the risk of adverse cardiovascular and cerebrovascular outcomes. Therapy to reduce BP is indicated, yet optimal BP goals are a moving target. Special considerations apply in the treatment of hypertension in dialysis patients and transplant recipients. This session addresses these topics.

Honorary Moderator: Robert G. Luke, MD

Session Objectives

Upon completion of this session, the participant will be able to: 1. discuss recent changes on treated goal BP targets; 2. choose optimal agents for treating BP in predialysis CKD patients; 3. apply dialysis-specific treatment strategies for BP management; and 4. choose optimal agents for treating BP in kidney transplant patients.

Session Acknowledgements
