Blood Pressure Measurement in Severely Obese Patients: Validation of the Forearm Approach in Different Arm Positions.

08:00 EDT 12th October 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Blood Pressure Measurement in Severely Obese Patients: Validation of the Forearm Approach in Different Arm Positions."

Blood pressure measurement in severe obesity may be technically challenging as the cuff of the device may not fit adequately around the upper arm. The aim of the study was to assess the agreement between intra-arterial blood pressure values (gold standard) compared with forearm blood pressure measurements in severely obese patients in different arm positions.

Perioperative Blood Pressure Monitoring in Patients With Obesity.

Blood pressure monitoring plays a key part in the preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative care of all patients. In patients with obesity, hypertension indicates increased metabolic and surgica...

GLP-1 Is a Coronary Artery Vasodilator in Humans.

Background The mechanism underlying the beneficial cardiovascular effects of the incretin GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide 1) and its analogues in humans is elusive. We hypothesized that activating recept...

Design of Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor and Its Data Encryption Method.

Influence of visceral fat and blood pressure on changes in blood flow velocity in non-obese individuals.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of different visceral fat (VF) and blood pressure (BP) levels on changes in blood flow velocity (BFV) among non-obese subjects, using a cross-sectional...

Validation of Pulse Waveform Analysis-based Continuous Noninvasive Blood Pressure Measurement Sensor

The study aims to define the sensitivity and specificity of a novel continuous noninvasive blood pressure monitor.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The continuous measurement of physiological processes, blood pressure, heart rate, renal output, reflexes, respiration, etc., in a patient or experimental animal; includes pharmacologic monitoring, the measurement of administered drugs or their metabolites in the blood, tissues, or urine.

Method in which repeated blood pressure readings are made while the patient undergoes normal daily activities. It allows quantitative analysis of the high blood pressure load over time, can help distinguish between types of HYPERTENSION, and can assess the effectiveness of antihypertensive therapy.

Persistently high systemic arterial BLOOD PRESSURE. Based on multiple readings (BLOOD PRESSURE DETERMINATION), hypertension is currently defined as when SYSTOLIC PRESSURE is consistently greater than 140 mm Hg or when DIASTOLIC PRESSURE is consistently 90 mm Hg or more.

A response by the BARORECEPTORS to increased BLOOD PRESSURE. Increased pressure stretches BLOOD VESSELS which activates the baroreceptors in the vessel walls. The net response of the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM is a reduction of central sympathetic outflow. This reduces blood pressure both by decreasing peripheral VASCULAR RESISTANCE and by lowering CARDIAC OUTPUT. Because the baroreceptors are tonically active, the baroreflex can compensate rapidly for both increases and decreases in blood pressure.

Measurement of the blood pressure of the retinal vessels. It is used also for the determination of the near point of convergence (CONVERGENCE, OCULAR). (From Cline, et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)
