Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) is a multifactorial syndrome characterized by a limited exercising capacity. High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is an emerging strategy for exercise rehabilitation in different settings. In patients with HFpEF, HIIT subacute effects on endothelial function and blood pressure are still unknown.

The aim of this study was to investigate whether additional volume reduction by ultrafiltration can improve blood pressure in patients with intradialytic hypertension (IDH) defined as at least 10 mm...
The 2017 American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) Guideline for the Prevention, Detection, Evaluation, and Management of High Blood Pressure in Adults lowered the systolic a...
The efficacy and tolerability of intensive blood pressure lowering may vary by pulse pressure (systolic minus diastolic blood pressure).
Main cardiovascular parameters such as heart rate (HR), blood pressure, and myocardial oxygen consumption (MOC) are tightly regulated by a multifactorial, nonlinear control system. Increased HR becaus...
From April to October 2018, we implemented a blood pressure measurement quality improvement project at our Hypertension Center. We aimed to compare blood pressure measured using routine, non-standardi...
Tourniquet use during total knee replacement (TKR) improves visibility, significantly decreases intra-operative blood loss and reduce operative time. However, tourniquet use also has a neg...
Multicenter, prospective, randomised, open study comparing the effect of the following two strategies in hypertensive subjects > 55 years and poorly controlled (systolic blood pressure >= ...
Isolated Systolic Hypertension (ISH)is the dominating hypertensive disease in elderly people. Much attention has recently been drawn to the strong relationship between the systolic blood p...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of three doses of valsartan (0.25, 1.0, and 4.0 mg/kg) on mean sitting systolic blood pressure (MSSBP) and mean sitting dia...
This study examines the efficacy of individualized counseling letters to reduce systolic blood pressure level of ≥ 130 mmHg in individuals aged between 40 and 65 years. The computer-gene...
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.
An alpha-2 adrenergic agonist that crosses the blood-brain barrier. Clonidine acts centrally by reducing sympathetic tone, resulting in a fall in diastolic and systolic blood pressure and a reduction in heart rate. It also acts peripherally, and this peripheral activity may be responsible for the transient increase in blood pressure seen during rapid intravenous administration. (From Martindale, the Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p350)
Loss of consciousness due to a reduction in blood pressure that is associated with an increase in vagal tone and peripheral vasodilation.
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.
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.
