The 2017 American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) guideline lowers the blood pressure (BP) thresholds for defining brachial hypertension. We therefore aimed to investigate how the new guideline influences the prevalence of brachial hypertension and whether it improves the identification of central hypertension in an Asian national representative population.
In 2017, the American Academy of Pediatrics issued a new clinical practice guideline for defining hypertension in children as an update to the previous Fourth Report guidelines issued in 2004. Prevalence of confirmed pediatric hypertension in children has ranged from 2% to 4% based on previous guidelines yet it is unknown what the prevalence is under the new guideline. We estimated the prevalence of elevated blood pressure, stage 1, and stage 2 hypertension by the new American Academy of Pediatrics guidelin...
Childhood hypertension is associated with higher risks of cardiovascular disease during adulthood. This study estimated the prevalence of hypertension and high blood pressure among children aged 8 to 17 years in the United States per the 2017 American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) guideline and compared that with the 2004 National Institutes of Health/National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NIH/NHLBI) guideline's prevalence estimate during 2005-2008 and 2013-2016.
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...
Arterial stiffness is associated with longitudinal increases in blood pressure and hypertension development. A screened cohort was used to test whether increases in the ankle-brachial index (ABI) with age occur as a result of increasing arterial stiffness and wave reflection and is associated with hypertension incidence.
We conducted a cross-sectional study among school/college students in Tanzania and Uganda to determine the prevalence of high blood pressure (BP) and associated factors. Participants were classified to have high BP if they had pre-hypertension or hypertension. Interviews were done using the WHO STEPS instrument. Using data from both countries (n = 1596), the overall prevalence of high BP was 40% (95% CI: 37-42). The prevalence of pre-hypertension was 29% (95% CI: 26-31) and that of hypertension was 11% (9...
Hypertension is a growing problem worldwide and can often result in a variety of negative health outcomes. The aim of this study was to assess the effects of age at diagnosis, calendar period, and birth cohort on the change in the prevalence rate of hypertension in Guangzhou from 2004 to 2013.
Application of the 2017 ACC/AHA Hypertension Guideline expands the number of US adults requiring blood pressure (BP) management. The authors use 2011-2014 NHANES data to describe the population groups most affected by the new guideline, compared with the previous JNC-7 guideline, and describe the previous interaction with the health care sector among those adults recommended new or intensified pharmacologic treatment and/or lifestyle modification. The 2017 Hypertension Guideline reclassifies 32.3 million US...
To understand the prevalence, awareness, treatment and control of hypertension in elderly residents in Hebei province. Elderly residents aged ≥60 were selected though multistage clustering sampling during August to December, 2015. Design based methods were adopted to analyze the prevalence, awareness, treatment and control of hypertension in local residents of Hebei. A total of 2 501 elderly adults were included in the study. The overall prevalence rate of hypertension was 63.7 (58.3 in males, 69.0 in f...
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death and disability among women, with more than half occurring in individuals with hypertension. New blood pressure criteria for the diagnosis of hypertension from the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association recognize that there is no specific blood pressure threshold that is associated with vascular disease. We performed a secondary analysis of two published postpartum databases (the Pre-Eclampsia New Emerging Team [PE-NET] cohort and ...
To evaluate the impact of the new US hypertension criteria [systolic blood pressure/diastolic blood pressure (SBP/DBP ≥130/80 mmHg)] on hypertension prevalence and the constituent ratio of three hypertension phenotypes.
Whether the present obesity epidemic will increase the prevalence of pulmonary hypertension over the next decades is unclear. We review the obesity-related mechanisms that may further the development and progression of pulmonary hypertension.
Secondary hypertension is a serious form of hypertension, involving 5% to 10% of all hypertension patients. Hypertension is a risk factor of the saccular intracranial aneurysm (sIA) disease and subarachnoid hemorrhage from ruptured sIA (aSAH), but the impact of secondary hypertension on sIA disease is poorly known. In a defined Eastern Finnish sIA population we studied the prevalence of secondary hypertension and its impact on sIA disease phenotype.
The introduction in the USA of the new AHA Guideline on management of Hypertension has fuelled controversy on the optimal definition and treatment of hypertension. A more strict definition (130/80 mmHg) and the advice to treat the major part of the hypertensive population well below 140/90 mmHg is a recipe for medicalisation of society. Advocates of the guideline emphasise the growing body of evidence to support more aggressive treatment. This evidence however seems to focus merely on the reduction of risk ...
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.
Purpose The burden of hypertension is rising both globally and in Africa specifically. We determined the prevalence of hypertension and the risk factors for clinical hypertension in a population of new university intakes over a 4-year period. Methods We analyzed retrospectively, the records of 6980 older adolescents (15-19 years). We used population-specific metrics to categorize blood pressure (BP) based on the 2017 Clinical Practice Guidelines by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Results The overall pre...
Hypertension is a major cause of cardiovascular disease morbidity and mortality in Ghana. This study examines the prevalence, awareness, treatment and control of hypertension among Ghanaian aged 15-49 years. This cross-sectional study retrieved data from the 2014 Ghana Demographic and Health Survey (GDHS). The sample, comprising of 13,247 respondents aged 15-49 years, was analysed using descriptive statistics, Chi-Square tests, independent sample t-tests and binary logistic regressions. The overall prevalen...
We assessed the performance of the simplified American Academy Pediatrics (AAP) 2017 guideline table and a simplified table based on the Fourth Report blood pressure (BP) reference tables for high BP screening compared with the European Society Hypertension 2016 guideline diagnostic thresholds.
The new American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association 2017 Hypertension Guidelines lower the threshold to define hypertension, thus increasing its prevalence. The impact on populations and health systems is poorly understood. We included data from 990 subjects aged 20 to 64 years from the SALMEX cohort (Salt in Mexico; Mexico City) and determined the prevalence of hypertension and requirement for pharmacological treatment according to both Joint National Committee on the Prevention, Detection, a...
