To determine if the use of automated office blood pressure readings can improve management of systolic hypertension in routine clinical practice. Automated office SBP recordings in routine clinical practice using the BpTRU device will reflect more accurately the mean awake ambulatory systolic BP than will manual BP readings taken with conventional mercury sphygmomanometry. This should lead to improvements in the management of systolic hypertension with optimization of drug therapy in practices using the BpTRU device.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Intervention Model: Factorial Assignment, Masking: Open Label

The aim of the PRAM study was to determine whether women diagnosed with hypertension in pregnancy, using the traditional mercury device, have the same pregnancy outcomes when blood pressur...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether there are detectable health effects of low-level mercury exposure (from normal exposure to mercury-containing dental fillings) in the know...
Fish can provide pregnant women with omega-3 fatty acids for fetal brain development but some fish contains high levels of mercury which is detrimental to fetal brain development. The hypo...
Hypertension is the single most important risk factor for cardiovascular disease and death, yet blood pressure itself is highly influenced by technique and device. Hence, the target blood ...
The goal of the study is to find out how much mercury is in the blood, urine, and stools of premature and low birth weight infants who have received standard childhood vaccines that are gi...
This study aimed to investigate whether conventional predisposing factors modify the associations of homocysteine with blood pressure levels and hypertension. A total of 2615 adults were recruited fro...
Cyrtomium macrophyllum naturally grown in 225.73 mg kg(-1) of soil mercury in mining area was found to be a potential mercury accumulator plant with the translocation factor of 2.62 and the high mer...
Central blood pressure (BP) can be used to define hypertension. A central BP approach may be more sensitive than a conventional brachial BP approach in detecting hypertension. We aimed to compare the ...
The hybrid filter (HF) was newly designed and operated with powder activated carbon (PAC) injection to capture mercury and fine particulate matter in the coal power plant. With PAC injection in HF ope...
The plum rain season in Taiwan is in May and June. The severest plum rain season over the last 21 years was in 2017. This study involves the collection of mercury wet depositions in the plum rain sea...
Stable mercury atoms that have the same atomic number as the element mercury, but differ in atomic weight. Hg-196, 198-201, and 204 are stable mercury isotopes.
Poisoning that results from chronic or acute ingestion, injection, inhalation, or skin absorption of MERCURY or MERCURY COMPOUNDS.
Unstable isotopes of mercury that decay or disintegrate emitting radiation. Hg atoms with atomic weights 185-195, 197, 203, 205, and 206 are radioactive mercury isotopes.
A silver metallic element that exists as a liquid at room temperature. It has the atomic symbol Hg (from hydrargyrum, liquid silver), atomic number 80, and atomic weight 200.59. Mercury is used in many industrial applications and its salts have been employed therapeutically as purgatives, antisyphilitics, disinfectants, and astringents. It can be absorbed through the skin and mucous membranes which leads to MERCURY POISONING. Because of its toxicity, the clinical use of mercury and mercurials is diminishing.
Inorganic compounds that contain mercury as an integral part of the molecule.
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a chronic, life-threatening disorder characterized by abnormally high blood pressure in the arteries between the heart and lungs of affected individuals. Symptoms can range from mild breathles...
The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved on October 8th 2013 Adempas® (riociguat) tablets for: (i) the treatment of adults with persistent/recurrent chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) (WHO* Group 4) after ...
Pharmacy is the science and technique of preparing as well as dispensing drugs and medicines. It is a health profession that links health sciences with chemical sciences and aims to ensure the safe and effective use of pharmaceutical drugs. The scope of...
