Postexercise Hypotension and Exercise Adherence

2018-12-26 06:27:10 | BioPortfolio


Sedentary (n=24) adults ≥18 yr with elevated BP to established hypertension were enrolled into this randomized clinical trial entitled, 'Blood Pressure UtiLizing Self-Monitoring after Exercise study or PULSE'. Participants were randomly assigned to either an exercise only (EXERCISE; n=12) or exercise plus BP self-monitoring (EXERCISE+PEH) (n=12) group. All participants participated in a 12 wk supervised moderate intensity aerobic exercise training program 40 min/d for 3 d/wk. In addition, they were encouraged to exercise at home ≥30 min/d for 1-2 d/wk. All participants self-monitored exercise with a traditional calendar recording method and heart rate (HR) monitor. In addition to traditional exercise self-monitoring (EXERCISE), individuals in the EXERCISE+PEH group were given a home BP monitor to assess home BP twice daily (in the morning upon awakening and in the evening) and prior to and after voluntary home exercise sessions. Resting BP, peak oxygen consumption (VO2peak), physical activity, dietary and salt intake, and antihypertensive medication adherence were measured before and after the 12 wk supervised exercise training program. In addition, integrated social-cognitive predictors of exercise that included questionnaires on exercise self-efficacy, barriers self-efficacy, outcome expectations for exercise, exercise intention, and affective responses to exercise were measured before and after the 12 wk supervised exercise training program. Four weeks following the completion of exercise training, self-reported exercise levels were assessed during a telephone interview in both groups. Among EXERCISE+PEH only, self-monitoring of BP was also self-reported during this telephone interview.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Phenomenon where increased BLOOD PRESSURE readings taken in non-clinical settings (e.g., HOME BLOOD PRESSURE MONITORING) do not replicate in clinical settings.

The continuous measurement of physiological processes, blood pressure, heart rate, renal output, reflexes, respiration, etc., in a patient or experimental animal; includes pharmacologic monitoring, the measurement of administered drugs or their metabolites in the blood, tissues, or urine.

Physiologic or biochemical monitoring of the fetus. It is usually done during LABOR, OBSTETRIC and may be performed in conjunction with the monitoring of uterine activity. It may also be performed prenatally as when the mother is undergoing surgery.

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.
