The purpose of this study is to assess the effect of hospital admission on 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure (ABP) in hypertensive subjects.Treated or untreated hypertensive adults with open angle glaucoma underwent in-hospital and outpatient 24-hour ABP monitoring, in random order 4 weeks apart.

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...
Investigators plan to study blood pressure trends on days 3 to 6 of the postpartum period. Investigators will use a home blood pressure monitor that stays on the arm, and takes blood press...
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...
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...
Blood pressure has been traditionally measured at peripheral arteries. In the past decade evidence has grown, that central aortic blood pressure may be a more powerful predictor for cardiovascular eve...
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.
Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that is devoted to the study and treatment of eye diseases. As well as mild visual defects correctable by lenses, ophthalmology is concerned with glaucoma, uveitis and other serious conditions affecting the eye, ...
