New publications

The scientific productivity of HIGHCARE projects is not declining. We have recently published the main results of HIGHCARE-ANDES Lowlanders Study (Bilo et al. Hypertension. 2015;65(6):1266-72). Moreover the paper presenting the results of an echocardiography substudy of HIGHCARE-Himalaya has been accepted for publication in European Heart Journal – Cardiovascular Imaging.

We have also published a review paper “Aging, High Altitude, and Blood Pressure: A Complex Relationship.” in High Altitude Medicine and Biology (Parati et al. High Alt Med Biol. 2015;16(2):97-109).

Finally, the results of a new project HIGHCARE-Sestriere and the results of a study on the accuracy of blood pressure measuring devices at high altitude performed within HIGHCARE-Alps 2010 have been recently presented during the European Society of Hypertension Annual Meeting in Milan.
