Validation of an existing algorithm designed to estimate blood pressure based on collected optical signals on patients against the reference method which is arterial catheter
The aim of this research project is to find out whether a personalized definition of the lower blood pressure threshold based on the individual blood pressure profile by means of preoperat...
This study will assess whether an intervention including mindfulness, dietary education, and smoking cessation can help African-American women of childbearing age (age 18-44) with hyperten...
To explore in a pilot randomized clinical trial, the impact of Home Blood Pressure Monitoring with patient directed information as compared to usual care on the postoperative management of...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether blood pressure control by home blood pressure monitoring exerts beneficial cardioprotective effects rather than by clinic blood pressure m...
From April to October 2018, we implemented a blood pressure measurement quality improvement project at our Hypertension Center. We aimed to compare blood pressure measured using routine, non-standardi...
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...
The efficacy and tolerability of intensive blood pressure lowering may vary by pulse pressure (systolic minus diastolic blood pressure).
Intraoperative hypotension is associated with significant postoperative complicationsIntraoperative hypotension has been defined relative to preinduction blood pressureBlood pressure varies during the...
Continuous blood pressure monitoring is essential in the management of patients in critical conditions, as well as those under anesthesia. However, continuous blood pressure monitoring requires insert...
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.
PRESSURE of the BLOOD on the ARTERIES and other BLOOD VESSELS.
The blood pressure in the VEINS. It is usually measured to assess the filling PRESSURE to the HEART VENTRICLE.
