The study was designed to investigate if atenolol is able to blunt blood pressure increase during resistance exercise in hypertensive subjects.
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.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Subject), Primary Purpose: Supportive Care

Confirm central blood pressure reduction effect of Fimasartan, Valsartan and Atenolol and compare correlation with the measured peripheral (central blood pressure, pulse wave velocity, and...
Studies have shown that beta-blockers such as atenolol when given in the perioperative period reduce morbidity and mortality. One study showed that atenolol given just during the surgery ...
The purpose of this study is to develop an approach to provide personalized medicine to individuals who have hypertension (high blood pressure). The investigators plan to use people's gen...
The purpose of the study is to show that valsartan compared to atenolol has favorable effects on exercise capacity, quality of life, diastolic function and elevated blood pressure in hyper...
To investigate the impact of antihypertensive therapy with the selective mineralocorticoid receptor blocker, eplerenone, on small resistance artery remodeling, compared to the effect of eq...
To investigate whether the invasively obtained central aortic systolic blood pressure (CSBP) predicts chronic kidney disease (CKD) better than brachial systolic blood pressure (SBP), brachial diastoli...
Our objective is to create a blood pressure measurement device which may provide a way to easily acquire frequent measurements. Common techniques to measure blood pressure include an arterial catheter...
Paper home blood pressure (HBP) charts are commonly brought to physicians at office visits. The precision and accuracy of mental calculations of blood pressure (BP) means are not known.
Home blood pressure monitoring (HBPM) is cited as an effective approach for improving blood pressure control. The objective of this study was to determine the effectiveness of HBPM combined with a hea...
Although inaccurate, non-reproducible blood pressure values can result from non-standardized assessments, recommended approaches to standardize blood pressure measurement are often not followed in res...
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.
