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.

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 ...
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...
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 ...
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...
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. ...
To test two related hypotheses that elevated blood pressure (BP) is a risk factor for aortic valve stenosis (AS) or regurgitation (AR).
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 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...
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 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...
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.
Sleep disorders disrupt sleep during the night, or cause sleepiness during the day, caused by physiological or psychological factors. The common ones include snoring and sleep apnea, insomnia, parasomnias, sleep paralysis, restless legs syndrome, circa...
Stress is caused by your perception of situations around you and then the reaction of your body to them. The automatic stress response to unexpected events is known as 'fight or flight'. Discovered by Walter Cannon in 1932, it is the release of h...
