Screening for hypertension: an elevated office blood pressure measurement is valuable, adding an automated one is even better.

Previous studies have examined the relevance of hypertension (HTN) screening in walk-in clinics. So far, no valid algorithm has been proposed on how to integrate HTN screening in this context. The aim of our study was to assess, in a walk-in clinic setting, the HTN screening strategy for performing an automated office blood pressure (AOBP) measurement following an initially high office blood pressure (OBP) measurement.

Emergency Department-Provided Home Blood Pressure Devices Can Help Detect Undiagnosed Hypertension.

Emergency departments (EDs) are critical sites for hypertension (HTN) screening. Home blood pressure (BP) monitoring (HBPM) is used routinely in outpatient settings, yet its utility after the ED visit for those with elevated BP in the ED is unclear.

Predictors and Consequences of Pediatric Hypertension: Have Advanced Echocardiography and Vascular Testing Arrived?

Pediatric hypertension is relatively common and associated with future adult hypertension. Elevated blood pressure in youth predicts future adult cardiovascular disease and blood pressure control can prevent progression of pediatric kidney disease. However, pediatric blood pressure is highly variable within a given child and among children in a population.

Recent Advances in Hypertension Research.

Raised blood pressure affects 1.13 billion people worldwide according to Global Health Observatory (GHO) data. Interestingly, according to WHO statistics, the prevalence of elevated blood pressure depends on World Bank income group. The change over the last 40 years might be due to better awareness and better treatment options in regions with higher income whereas the prevalence has increased in the low income regions. Currently, a high percentage of patients have suboptimal or inadequately controlled blood...

Ambient PM air pollution, blood pressure, and hypertension: Insights from the 33 Communities Chinese Health Study.

No evidence exists concerning the association between blood pressure and ambient particles with aerodynamic diameter ≤ 1.0 µm (PM), a major component of PM (≤ 2.5 µm) particles, and potentially causing more hazardous health effects than PM. We aimed to examine the associations of blood pressure in adults with both PM and PM in China. In 2009, we randomly selected 24,845 participants aged 18-74 years from 33 communities in China. Using a standardized mercuric-column sphygmomanometer, we measured ...

Impact of Single Occasion American vs. Canadian Office Blood Pressure Measurement Recommendations on Blood Pressure Classification.

The 2017 American hypertension guidelines (ACC/AHA) define a blood pressure measurement (BPM) procedure which differs from the Canadian Hypertension Education Program Guidelines (CHEP). We studied the impact of the BPM procedure on arterial hypertension (AHT) prevalence rate.

Is it Possible to Significantly Modify Blood Pressure with a Combined Nutraceutical on Top of a Healthy Diet? The Results of a Pilot Clinical Trial.

Beyond the well-known effects on blood pressure (BP) of the dietary approaches to stop hypertension (DASH) and the Mediterranean diets associated to a correct lifestyle, often a lifestyle change is not simple and can show only long-time results: in this sense, a possible support might be derived from the use of some anti-hypertensive supplements or nutraceuticals, which may provide a significant reduction in blood pressure.

May Measurement Month 2018: a pragmatic global screening campaign to raise awareness of blood pressure by the International Society of Hypertension.

Raised blood pressure (BP) is the biggest contributor to mortality and disease burden worldwide and fewer than half of those with hypertension are aware of it. May Measurement Month (MMM) is a global campaign set up in 2017, to raise awareness of high BP and as a pragmatic solution to a lack of formal screening worldwide. The 2018 campaign was expanded, aiming to include more participants and countries.

Estimated Change in Prevalence of Hypertension in Nepal Following Application of the 2017 ACC/AHA Guideline.

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 and diastolic blood pressure thresholds for hypertension to 130 and 80 mm Hg, respectively. This represents a reduction of 10 mm Hg in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure levels used to define hypertension compared with previous guidelines, such as the Seventh Report of the Joint National Committee on Pre...

Obesity and season as determinants of high blood pressure in a school-based screening study.

This school-based screening study assessed the prevalence of high blood pressure (BP) levels according to the European Society of Hypertension (ESH) 2016 guidelines. Moreover, risk factors for BP elevation, and the effect of geographic and seasonal factors on BP screening were investigated. BP and anthropometric measurements were obtained from 2832 children and adolescents, aged 6-18 years, during the period 2013-2016. Three BP measurements were performed using a mercury sphygmomanometer, and the mean of th...
