To evaluate effects of mantra meditation on depressive symptoms if applied as adjunctive therapy to psychotherapy and/or antidepressant drugs and to explore if meditation leads to increase...
Neck Pain caused by Cervical spondylosis (CS) is one of the most common health complaints. Despite its frequency as clinical problem worldwide, there are few evidence-based studies that do...
There is an evidence gap on whether meditation may improve behaviorally measured attention after stroke, but preliminary research is promising. This study is the first-ever investigation o...
This program developed by the HSFO aims at helping people of Ontario and their primary healthcare providers better diagnose, manage and control high blood pressure. The High Blood Pressure...
High blood pressure is one of the most common health problems in the United States. There are many medications to treat high blood pressure, but there is a large variance in how people res...
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 ...
Whether cerebrovascular regulation is different in patients with controlled high blood pressure (HBP) with and without small vessel disease (SVD).
Background Studies in adults have shown a relationship between high blood pressure and hyperuricemia, but few studies have investigated this association in children and adolescents. The aim of the pre...
To investigate whether the invasively obtained central aortic systolic blood pressure (CSBP) predicts chronic kidney disease (CKD) better than brachial systolic blood pressure (SBP), brachial diastoli...
Our objective is to create a blood pressure measurement device which may provide a way to easily acquire frequent measurements. Common techniques to measure blood pressure include an arterial catheter...
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.
Dietary recommendations that promote reduction in or prevention of high blood pressure. Recommendations include increasing intake of fruits and vegetables, and high-fiber, low-fat foods and reducing the intake of DIETARY SODIUM and high fat foods.
