Name: Journal of clinical hypertension (Greenwich, Conn.)
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...
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...
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 b...
This is a multicenter, open-label, parallel-group, randomized controlled trial that will be conducted across mainland China. This trial will test the primary hypothesis of whether an inten...
This pilot study will evaluate the feasibility of adding an online mind-body-behavior program to an existing behavioral self-management support platform that has been modified to promote a...
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether an aggressive multi-risk factor management strategy (Caduet plus therapeutic lifestyle changes (TLC) regimen) will result in greater per...
Demonstrate that the use of benchmarking improves quality of patient care, in particular the control of diabetes, lipids and blood pressure, by determining the percentage of patients in th...
The aim of this study is to to analyze if it is possible to reach the goals of HbA1c
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.
PRESSURE of the BLOOD on the ARTERIES and other BLOOD VESSELS.
The blood pressure in the VEINS. It is usually measured to assess the filling PRESSURE to the HEART VENTRICLE.
