Summary of "The impact of body mass index on blood pressure measured with mercury sphygmomanometer in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes mellitus."

Patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) and overweight have more risk to develop changes in blood pressure that increase cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. In this study, the relationship between blood pressure (BP) with the body mass index (BMI) and the average of the last three measurements of glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) in patients with T1DM was determined.

The blood pressure in the VEINS. It is usually measured to assess the filling PRESSURE to the HEART VENTRICLE.

The blood pressure in the ARTERIES. It is commonly measured with a SPHYGMOMANOMETER on the upper arm which represents the arterial pressure in the BRACHIAL ARTERY.

A state of insufficient flesh on the body usually defined as having a body weight less than skeletal and physical standards. Depending on age, sex, and genetic background, a BODY MASS INDEX of less than 18.5 is considered as underweight.

The pressure within the CARDIAC ATRIUM. It can be measured directly by using a pressure catheter (see HEART CATHETERIZATION). It can be also estimated using various imaging techniques or other pressure readings such as PULMONARY CAPILLARY WEDGE PRESSURE (an estimate of left atrial pressure) and CENTRAL VENOUS PRESSURE (an estimate of right atrial pressure).

The signs of life that may be monitored or measured, namely pulse rate, respiratory rate, body temperature, and blood pressure.
