Optimal blood pressure (BP) levels during acute ischemic stroke have not been established. We studied associations between systolic BP trajectories during acute phase and subsequent clinical outcomes among patients with ischemic stroke.

To investigate whether the invasively obtained central aortic systolic blood pressure (CSBP) predicts chronic kidney disease (CKD) better than brachial systolic blood pressure (SBP), brachial diastoli...
The efficacy and tolerability of intensive blood pressure lowering may vary by pulse pressure (systolic minus diastolic blood pressure).
Background It is not clear whether risk stratification can help choose the most favourable systolic blood pressure target for primary prevention of cardiovascular events. Design A secondary analysis o...
There is clinical trial evidence that lowering systolic blood pressure (SBP) to < 120 mm Hg is beneficial, and this has influenced the latest American guideline on hypertension. We therefore used netw...
We performed a retrospective study with the aim of investigating the association between blood pressure (BP) variability in the first 24 h after ischemic stroke and functional outcome, regarding arter...
A randomized, multicenter study comparing two strategies: 1 / standard management of systolic blood pressure according to international recommendations (systolic blood pressure
Demonstrate that maintenance of systolic blood pressure between 140 and 160 mm Hg during the acute phase of ischemic stroke is more effective than management according to the International...
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...
A Clinical Study to Evaluate the Effects of Darusentan on Safety and Efficacy in Subjects With Resistant Systolic Hypertension Receiving Combination Therapy With Three or More Blood Pressure Lowering Drugs
This is a research study of a new experimental drug called darusentan. Darusentan is not currently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in the United States, wh...
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.
Blood pressure levels that are between normotension and hypertension. Individuals with prehypertension are at a higher risk for developing cardiovascular diseases. Generally, prehypertension is defined as SYSTOLIC PRESSURE of 131-139 mm Hg and/or DIASTOLIC PRESSURE of 81-89 when the optimal is 120/80 mm Hg. For diabetics and other metabolism diseases the prehypertension is around 110-129/70-79 mm Hg.
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.

Phenomenon where increased BLOOD PRESSURE readings taken in non-clinical settings (e.g., HOME BLOOD PRESSURE MONITORING) do not replicate in clinical settings.
Proteins that are secreted into the blood in increased or decreased quantities by hepatocytes in response to trauma, inflammation, or disease. These proteins can serve as inhibitors or mediators of the inflammatory processes. Certain acute-phase proteins have been used to diagnose and follow the course of diseases or as tumor markers.

Stroke - Cerebrovascular Disease (CVA)
A stroke is a serious medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. Strokes are a medical emergency and prompt treatment is essential because the sooner a person receives treatment for a stroke, the less damage is ...
