Study of Atenolol Influence on Blood Pressure During Resistance Exercise

2014-08-27 03:17:23 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The study was designed to investigate if atenolol is able to blunt blood pressure increase during resistance exercise in hypertensive subjects.

Description

The study compared intra-arterial blood pressure responses during leg-extension resistance exercise performed to fatigue at 40, 80 and 100% of 1 RM in hypertensive patients receiving placebo (first) and atenolol (second) on a single blind manner.

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.

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.
