Intervention description: Complementary Approaches to Lower Mean arterial pressure (CALM) is a multi dispensary program aimed to reduce blood pressure in hypertensive patients. The progra...
Despite a large diffusion for generic anti-hypertensive, they are not currently used. Clinical validation studies could be better to convince users and prescribers than pharmacologic vali...
Almost 50% of hypertensive patients remain uncontrolled. Clinical decisions are mostly based on office blood pressure,despite the fallacies of this method of measurement. Other reasons for...
This the first report undertaken to assess the effect of supplementation with oral gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), adenosine and antrosterol-containing AC mycelia on blood pressure among p...
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of nocturnal administration of Anti-hypertensive medications in Non-dippers. Efficacy variables. 1. ECHO 2. 24hr. ho...
Withdrawing medications that interfere with blood pressure (BP) is recommended in patients with uncontrolled BP, yet real-world use of such agents is not well characterized among hypertensive individu...
Despite availability of a broad spectrum of blood pressure (BP)-lowering drugs many hypertensive patients do not attain BP goals. We aimed to evaluate the influence of home blood pressure monitoring (...
Acute exposure to high-altitude hypobaric hypoxia induces a blood pressure rise in hypertensive humans, both at rest and during exercise. It is unclear whether this phenomenon reflects specific blood ...
Hypertensive emergency is defined as a systolic blood pressure > 180 mmHg or a diastolic blood pressure > 120 mmHg with evidence of new or progressive end-organ damage. The purpose of this paper...
Restricted sodium intake has been recommended for more than 1 century for the treatment of hypertension. However, restriction seems to increase blood cholesterol. In women with excess weight, blood ch...
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.
Brain dysfunction or damage resulting from sustained MALIGNANT HYPERTENSION. When BLOOD PRESSURE exceeds the limits of cerebral autoregulation, cerebral blood flow is impaired (BRAIN ISCHEMIA). Clinical manifestations include HEADACHE; NAUSEA; VOMITING; SEIZURES; altered mental status (in some cases progressing to COMA); PAPILLEDEMA; and RETINAL HEMORRHAGE.
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.
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.
A response by the BARORECEPTORS to increased BLOOD PRESSURE. Increased pressure stretches BLOOD VESSELS which activates the baroreceptors in the vessel walls. The net response of the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM is a reduction of central sympathetic outflow. This reduces blood pressure both by decreasing peripheral VASCULAR RESISTANCE and by lowering CARDIAC OUTPUT. Because the baroreceptors are tonically active, the baroreflex can compensate rapidly for both increases and decreases in blood pressure.
