Blood Pressure Monitoring

Telmo Pereira, Sara Domingues, João Maldonado, Jorge Conde
INTRODUCTION: Pulse wave analysis (PWA) over the carotid artery is one of the available methodological options to obtain central arterial pressures and other important hemodynamic parameters. However, limited data exist relating the PWA estimates of one carotid artery over the contralateral one as the majority of the available data rely on measures over the right carotid artery. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the agreement of the PWA estimates between the right carotid artery and the left carotid artery...

The renewed 2018 syncope guidelines published by the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) reiterate that the initial evaluation of syncope should include history taking, physical examination, an electrocardiogram, and orthostatic blood pressure measurements (OBPM). However, the importance of evaluating for orthostatic hypotension (OH) often remains underappreciated in clinical practice. In this study, we examine the initial evaluation of syncope on an ED. We retrospectively reviewed 2 years of consecutive medical records of patients presenting with a syncope to the ED of a university hospital...

This study analyzed the reproducibility of ambulatory blood pressure (BP) after high-intensity interval training (HIIT) sessions. Seventeen normotensive men (23.5±2.4 years) underwent two HIIT and two control sessions separated by 7-10 days. Ambulatory BP monitoring devices were used for 20 h. The intraclass correlation coefficient of BP in the awake and asleep periods ranged from 0.836 to 0.942 in the HIIT (P<0.05) and from 0.777 to 0.974 in the control sessions (P<0.05). The bias, limits of agreement, and pattern of distribution of awake BP were similar between HIIT and control sessions...

OBJECTIVE: The conventional nocturnal blood pressure monitoring (NBPM) systems can disturb sleep and lead to false measurements. The present study compared the validity and acceptability of a newly developed wrist-cuff system with that of the conventional upper arm-cuff system for NBPM. PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS: Home blood pressure (BP) and pulse rate (PR) were measured in hypertensive patients (n=57) every 30 min at night using a wrist-cuff system and at 2 am (fixed time) and 4 h after going to bed (flexible time) using an upper arm-cuff system...

OBJECTIVES: Wide-range 'one-size-fits-all' blood pressure (BP) cuffs are commonly sold with home BP monitors. Assessment of the accuracy of these cuffs is important because they do not adhere to the basic principles of proper cuffing. The aim of this systematic review was to review the published validation data evaluating the accuracy of wide-range cuffs. METHODS: Medline (1946-2017) and the Web of Science (2002-2017) were searched for home BP device validation studies carried out according to an established validation protocol and published in English...

BACKGROUND: Heart rate (HR) and blood pressure (BP) autonomic modulation and baroreflex sensitivity (BRS) are important indexes of cardiovascular homeostasis. However, methodological errors are often observed, such as joint analysis of men and women. Another important aspect is that we still do not know whether cardiorespiratory fitness influences these autonomic parameters in healthy individuals. OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to investigate whether sex can affect BRS, autonomic modulation of HR and BP variabilities (HRV and BPV, respectively), as well as the influence of cardiorespiratory fitness on these autonomic parameters...

BACKGROUND: Few studies have assessed the role of 24-h ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) in adults with nondialysis chronic kidney disease (CKD). We examined the potential determinants of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) and mass index (LVMI) in this population. PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS: We carried out a cross-sectional study on 69 stage 3b-5 CKD adults who had ABPM and transthoracic echocardiography performed simultaneously. Hypertension (HT) was defined as 24 h blood pressure (BP) of at least 130/80 mmHg...

BACKGROUND: Numerous studies have shown a stronger relationship between ambulatory blood pressure (ABP), particularly night ABP, and cardiovascular events/mortality than for office blood pressure (OBP). A previous clinical trial (Syst-Eur) showed that pretreatment ABP was only a better predictor of outcome than OBP in placebo-treated participants. The current study in treated elderly hypertensives from the Second Australian National Blood Pressure study (ANBP2) examined whether pretreatment ABP was a better predictor of mortality than OBP over long-term (∼11 years) follow-up...

OBJECTIVES: Automated oscillometric blood pressure (BP) monitors can be critical health assessment tools if they are accurate and can provide repeatable and reproducible readings. Commercial patient simulators are capable of screening for poorly performing oscillometric BP monitors. A valid screening bench test method to identify unreliable and underperforming BP monitors could advance surveillance of these devices and support regulatory decision making. METHODS: Two simulators were used to characterize a total of 19 legally marketed upper arm, wrist, hospital-grade, and public-use BP monitors...

OBJECTIVE: There is a growing tendency for physicians to prescribe exercise in accordance with the 'exercise is medicine' global health initiative. However, the exercise-pharmacologic interactions for controlling blood pressure are not well described. Our purpose was to study whether angiotensin II receptor type 1 blocker (ARB) antihypertensive medicine enhances the blood pressure-lowering effects of intense exercise. PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS: Fifteen hypertensive individuals with metabolic syndrome chronically medicated with ARB underwent two exercise trials in a blind randomized order...
