Post CVA Persistent Hypertension Caring

2014-08-27 03:14:13 | BioPortfolio


The study HIPPOCRATE is a prospective open comparative study with a control group.

The objective of this study is to show that an optimization of the caring of non controlled hypertended patients following a CVA (including a preliminary Tensional auto-measure (TAM) at the follow-up visit, an education of the patient with a decision support tree for the generalist and/or a visit in the multidisciplinary AHT department), allow to obtain a better tensional control copared to the usual caring.


This study compares the usual follow up of patients seen at a visit three months following the CVA, with a optimised follow up including the tensional auto-measure, the education of the patient and the information of the generalist and the appeal to the AHT multidisciplinary visit for resistant patients, in compliance with the guidelines.

All the hypertended patients able to realise a course of tensional automeasures will be invited to realise a course of tensional auto-measures during three days preceding the visit in the neurology department.

The tensional measures will be performed according the methodology recommended by HAS.

This strategy of caring is conform to the HAS and ESH recommendations regarding the follow up of the hypertended patients.

The hospitalised patients in neurology for CVA are in all cases convocated to the follow up visit three months after the hospitalisation. The patients will be trained in the use of the TAM by the nurse of the neurology depratment before his dropout from the neurology department at the end of hospitalisation.

The systematic use of TAM will allow to identify patients presenting a AHT "white blouse", but too patients presenting masked AHT.

The visit in the neurology department will be performed by the investigators of the neurology department. At the end of this visit, two groups of patients will be identified : patients with a controlled AHT (NI), and patients with a masked or non controlled AHT (MASC + NC).

Patients presenting a controlled AHT or a "white blouse" AHT (NI) will not be randomised. But it will be proposed to them to sign a consent to acquire their agreement to realise a exploitation of their data. This will allow to caracterise better this population of patients.

Patients presenting a masked or non controlled AHT will be invited to participate to the study after signing a consent.

The collection of the consent will be done by the investigators of the neurology department.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Disorders whose essential features are the failure to resist an impulse, drive, or temptation to perform an act that is harmful to the individual or to others. Individuals experience an increased sense of tension prior to the act and pleasure, gratification or release of tension at the time of committing the act.

Devices used to measure the flow of fluids (see RHEOLOGY) or the AIR to measure RESPIRATION.

Components of ribosomal RNA that undergo auto-catalyzed molecular rearrangements of their RNA sequence.

A respiratory stimulant that enhances respiration by acting as an agonist of peripheral chemoreceptors located on the carotid bodies. The drug increases arterial oxygen tension while decreasing arterial carbon dioxide tension in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It may also prove useful in the treatment of nocturnal oxygen desaturation without impairing the quality of sleep.
