Little is known regarding health outcomes associated with higher blood pressure (BP) levels measured outside the clinic among African American individuals.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: JAMA cardiology
Ethnic differences in nighttime blood pressure (BP) have long been documented with African Americans (AAs) having higher BP than European Americans (EAs). Recently, lower nighttime melatonin, a key re...
Increasing evidence has shown that visit-to-visit variability (VVV) of blood pressure (BP) is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). The objective of this study was to eval...
To investigate the association between self-reported daytime napping habits and cardiovascular disease (CVD) in a large community-based study population.
Associations of blood pressure categories according to the 2017 American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association hypertension guideline and long-term blood pressure change with incident cardiovascular disease in middle-aged and elderly Chinese: the Dongfeng-Tongji cohort study.
To assess the associations of newly defined blood pressure (BP) categories by the 2017 American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association guideline and changes in BP with the risk of cardiovasc...
Despite the high prevalence of cardiovascular disease among patients with systemic lupus erythematosus, the relationship between age, blood pressure, and blood pressure variability (BPV) is not well u...
A new study have shown that high nighttime blood pressure (BP) and/or non-dipping (lack of fall in blood pressure during nighttime) is a strong predictor for the risk of cardiovascular dis...
Primary objective: To assess the efficacy of Levopront® in comparison with Libexin® based on daytime cough resolution rate by Day 8. The daytime cough symptoms resolution corresp...
This purpose of this study is to test the effect of oral melatonin supplementation (8 mg per night for 4 weeks) on nighttime blood pressure in African Americans with a history of elevated ...
The study includes two parts: 1) an observational study examines the association of meal frequency, meal timing, and meal regularity with short-term changes in blood pressure and body comp...
The aim of this study is to elucidate whether night-time dosing of mirebegron can improve nocturia, compared with daytime dosing of mirabegron.
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.
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.
A sleep disorder of central nervous system origin characterized by prolonged nocturnal sleep and periods of daytime drowsiness. Affected individuals experience difficulty with awakening in the morning and may have associated sleep drunkenness, automatic behaviors, and memory disturbances. This condition differs from narcolepsy in that daytime sleep periods are longer, there is no association with CATAPLEXY, and the multiple sleep latency onset test does not record sleep-onset rapid eye movement sleep.
