Apollo Hospitals launches BP clinics to combat hypertension

Apollo Hospitals Group has launched ‘BP Clinics’ – a one of its kind and first comprehensive institutional set-up in India to provide expert care to individuals affected by high blood pressure. 

According to Sangita Reddy, executive director, Apollo Hospitals Group, the principal mission of the Apollo BP Clinics is to reduce the disease burden on our society – by detecting hypertension early and by recommending proper treatment options for the patients. Our goal is to achieve normal BP in every patient diagnosed as hypertensive. We have a team of experts specialising in high BP treatment whose sole focus is dedicated to hypertension management. Our experts are known all over the world for their work and specialization in hypertension.

Apollo BP Clinics will have a structure comprising of Advanced BP Clinics located at our hospitals and serve as hubs and a series of BP Clinics, Express BP Clinics and Home care services, to reach out to the community at large. Initially we will be launching these Clinics at Apollo Jubilee Hills & Hyderguda, followed by Apollo Secunderabad, and expand it to other places. Around Rs.10 crore will be invested in setting up these clinics in the initial phase, we will expand further after reviewing the outcomes, she said. 

Apollo BP Clinics will have advanced diagnostic infrastructure like Periscopes, which can monitor central blood pressure - the more accurate and precise way of monitoring BP and checks elasticity of blood vessels and devices for 24 hours BP monitoring. We will create standardized guidelines and protocols for these clinics, she added.

Apollo BP Clinics provide a comprehensive programme for proper diagnosis and treatment of blood pressure problems in the community. The Clinics will accomplish accurate measurement of BP by trained personnel; 24-hour ambulatory BP measurement; checking the health of blood vessels (elasticity, stiffness etc.,); investigations for BP; and special and advanced testing for patients with complex, difficult–to-treat and resistant hypertension
