Blood pressure reduction and control are associated with reduced risk of stroke and cardiovascular disease. There is evidence that ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) results more accurately reflect the risk of cardiovascular events than do office measurements of blood pressure. New international guidelines recognize the importance of ABPM which has an important and growing role in the diagnosis and in guiding antihypertensive therapy. In 2011 in the United Kingdom, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommended that ABPM be performed on all patients with suspected hypertension to confirm the diagnosis and reduce unnecessary treatment in people who do not have true hypertension. The aim of this observational study is to describe the utility of ABPM generally and specifically in the management of hypertension by Cardiologists in the Algerian context.
The primary Objective of this study is to assess the benefit of the ABPM in the diagnosis and management of arterial hypertension in by Cardiologists.
The Secondary Objectives are:
- To identify the conditions of usage of ABPM for the diagnosis of arterial hypertension,
- To evaluate the blood pressure during the ABPM assessment and at 6 weeks of follow up
- To describe the study population (socio-demography),
- To describe the therapeutic stratégies and the compliance to treatment.

The early detection of pulmonary arterial hypertension may help to improve prognosis of the disease. It is assumed that in the early stages of pulmonary arterial hypertension, pulmonary ar...
Dyspnea is a major symptom in pulmonary arterial hypertension and people with the same haemodynamic have generally different degree of dyspnea in pulmonary arterial hypertension. The hyper...
Exercise-induced increase of the pulmonary arterial pressure may be an early sign of pulmonary arterial hypertension. It has been shown that patients with normal pulmonary arterial pressur...
The purpose of this study to see how much study drug is in the blood after dosing children with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and to establish the correct dose for further clinical...
The purpose of this study is to use non-invasive imaging to determine the metabolic phenotype of the right ventricle in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension across a spectrum of d...
Arterial hypertension is associated with greater risk of cardiovascular diseases and thrombotic complications, suggesting that hypertension is a prothrombotic state.
Arterial stiffness is associated with longitudinal increases in blood pressure and hypertension development. A screened cohort was used to test whether increases in the ankle-brachial index (ABI) with...

Guidelines concerning the widespread disease "essential arterial hypertension" have been available for a long time. Recently, the Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland (AAGBI) and ...
Common occlusive arterial disease which is caused by ATHEROSCLEROSIS. It is characterized by lesions in the innermost layer (ARTERIAL INTIMA) of arteries including the AORTA and its branches to the extremities. Risk factors include smoking, HYPERLIPIDEMIA, and HYPERTENSION.
A birth defect characterized by the narrowing of the AORTA that can be of varying degree and at any point from the transverse arch to the iliac bifurcation. Aortic coarctation causes arterial HYPERTENSION before the point of narrowing and arterial HYPOTENSION beyond the narrowed portion.
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 syndrome characterized by the clinical triad of advanced chronic liver disease, pulmonary vascular dilatations, and reduced arterial oxygenation (HYPOXEMIA) in the absence of intrinsic cardiopulmonary disease. This syndrome is common in the patients with LIVER CIRRHOSIS or portal hypertension (HYPERTENSION, PORTAL).
Thickening and loss of elasticity of the walls of medium and large muscular ARTERIES with lesions in the innermost layer of the artery (ARTERIAL INTIMA). This disease process of atherogenesis includes the retention of cholesterol-rich LIPOPROTEINS and their binding to PROTEOGLYCANS in the arterial intima, generation of proinflammatory molecules that recruit MACROPHAGES to the subendothelial space, formation of FOAM CELLS, and eventual calcification of the arterial wall. These arterial plaques (atheromas) contain CARBOHYDRATES; BLOOD; and CALCIUM.
