What is the ARTEMIS Project
ARTEMIS is the first International Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring Registry aiming at assessing the actual degree of blood pressure and cardiovascular risk control of hypertensive patients followed by doctors worldwide. The project is based on telemonitoring on BP through a web-based telemedicine service (MOREPRESS at www.morepress.net).

Why ARTEMIS?
Artemis was one of the most widely venerated of the Ancient Greek deities. In the classical period of Greek mythology, Artemis was often described as the daughter of Zeus and Leto (the titan goddess of being unseen), and the twin sister of Apollo (the god of light and the sun). She was the Hellenic goddess of the hunt, wilderness, childbirth and fertility and often was depicted as a huntress carrying a bow and arrows. Artemis later became identified with Selene, a Greek moon goddess, sometimes depicted with a crescent moon above her head.

The association between the goddess and the Project is not only related to a simple acronym. Artemis is universally acknowledged as a symbol of power and hope. In the context of the project it means:

  • The birth of a new way of hypertension management, through high technological devices and services
  • A strong will to spread out-of-office blood pressure monitoring techniques in the general practice in order to improve disease management
 
 
The numbers of the ARTEMIS Project
The database of the ARTEMIS project presently includes more than 14,000 hypertensive subjects from 41 different countries over 5 continents.
