Withings Pulse Wave Velocity and Blood Pressure Study

2017-04-05 02:08:22 | BioPortfolio


Measure pulse wave velocity stability in relation to time of day, day of the week, physical activity, sleep quality, stress levels and blood pressure.


The study population will be an estimated 300 healthy adult subjects from the United States. This population will be approximately 150 men and 150 women. In order to obtain a relatively diverse age range of users (with varying levels of arterial stiffness), we hope to enroll participants across three age ranges entered in the Withings application by the user: 18-40 years, 41-60 years, and > 60 years. These spots will be filled by those that satisfy the inclusion/exclusion criteria on a first come, first served basis.

Trial of Oral Melatonin in Elevated Blood Pressure

Since, lowering blood pressure (BP) in elevated blood pressure individuals represents an excellent opportunity to for primary prevention of hypertension (HTN). Therefore, it is planned to ...

Emergency Department Interventions to Improve Blood Pressure Follow-up

Hypertension is a very common disease, affecting approximately 65 million people in the United States. As many as 30 % of people with hypertension, approximately 20 million individuals, re...

Study of the Effects of Iron on Lung Blood Pressure at High Altitude

Body iron levels may be important in determining how the blood pressure in the lungs changes in response to low oxygen levels. At high altitude, where oxygen levels are low, some patients ...

Effectiveness of Vitamin D Supplementation

This pilot study will examine the effectiveness of vitamin D supplementation on reducing blood pressure and improving endothelial function. Premenopausal African American women will be re...

A Biomarker to Detect Salt Sensitivity

We are proposing that individuals with elevated levels of NT-proBNP are resistant to natriuretic peptides and are unable to handle sodium loads and maintain optimal blood pressure values. ...

Reducing Unnecessary Treatment of Asymptomatic Elevated Blood Pressure with Intravenous Medications on the General Internal Medicine Wards: A Quality Improvement Initiative.

Asymptomatic elevated blood pressure (BP) is common in the hospital. There is no evidence supporting the use of intravenous (IV) antihypertensives in this setting.

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...

Validation of finger blood pressure monitoring in children.

Continuous beat-to-beat blood pressure monitoring permits the rapid detection of blood pressure fluctuations for cardiovascular reflex testing and clinical haemodynamic monitoring. In adults, this can...

High Blood Pressure in Children and Adolescents.

High blood pressure in children and adolescents is a growing health problem that is often overlooked. Children should be screened for elevated blood pressure annually beginning at three years of age o...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition of markedly elevated BLOOD PRESSURE with DIASTOLIC PRESSURE usually greater than 120 mm Hg. Malignant hypertension is characterized by widespread vascular damage, PAPILLEDEMA, retinopathy, HYPERTENSIVE ENCEPHALOPATHY, and renal dysfunction.

Phenomenon where BLOOD PRESSURE readings are elevated only when taken in clinical settings.

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.

A strain of Rattus norvegicus with elevated blood pressure used as a model for studying hypertension and stroke.

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.
