Blood Pressure Monitoring

Yuki Imaizumi, Kazuo Eguchi, Satoshi Hoshide, Kazuomi Kario
OBJECTIVE: The respiratory system is an important component in the control of the autonomic nervous system, and is a possible factor of blood pressure variability (BPV). We examined whether decreased respiratory function is associated with exaggerated BPV in hypertensives. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This is a substudy of the Japan Morning Surge-Home Blood Pressure Study and patients who underwent both spirometry and ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) in the Japan Morning Surge-Home Blood Pressure study were analyzed...

OBJECTIVE: The primary aim of this study was to assess the accuracy of automated oscillometry (AO) in outpatients with atrial fibrillation (AF). The secondary aim was to explore whether AO accuracy is influenced by beat-to-beat blood pressure (BP) variability or heart frequency (HF). METHODS: Systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) were measured by AO and beat-to-beat BP using a validated Volume Clamp Method (VCM) technique. AO accuracy was analyzed separately in tertiles of beat-to-beat BP variability and HF...

OBJECTIVE: We determined differences in the prevalence of blood pressure (BP) phenotypes and the association of these phenotypes with left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) for individuals who fulfilled and did not fulfill various criteria used for defining a complete ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) recording. METHODS: We analyzed data for 1141 participants from the Jackson Heart Study. Criteria evaluated included having greater than or equal to 80% of planned readings with more than or equal to one reading per hour (Spanish ABPM Registry criteria), more than or equal to 70% of planned readings with a minimum of 20 daytime and seven nighttime readings (2013 European Society of Hypertension criteria), greater than or equal to 14 daytime and greater than or equal to seven nighttime readings (2003 European Society of Hypertension criteria), more than or equal to 10 daytime and more than or equal to 5 nighttime readings (International Database of Ambulatory Blood Pressure in Relation to Cardiovascular Outcome criteria), and greater than or equal to 14 daytime readings (UK National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence criteria)...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to verify the reproducibility of an oscillometric device in the measurement of resting heart rate (RHR) in breast cancer survivors. METHODS: This study included 85 breast cancer survivors with a mean age of 58.87±10.03 years. For the RHR evaluation, the equipment used was the Omron HEM 742, electronic and digital arm device, for measurement of blood pressure and heart rate (HR), with automatic cuff inflation and deflation. At the same time as the oscillometric measurement, HR was measured by the HR monitor Polar RS800 CX, which has been validated previously for HR uptake...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the present study was to comprehensively compare noninvasive and invasive blood pressure (BP) measured by the Philips Intellivue MP50 monitor in surgeries that may induce gall cardiac reflex under general anesthesia. PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS: Seventy-eight patients undergoing cholecyst or bile duct operations under general anesthesia were enrolled in our study. Both invasive (intraradial, femoral, or dorsalis pedis artery) and noninvasive (oscillometric) BP were monitored by the Philips Intellivue MP50 monitor simultaneously...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to compare the aortic piezoelectric device for noninvasive measurement of central aortic systolic blood pressure (cSBP) with the SphygmoCor. PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS: A total of 85 participants from both sexes, aged 18-80 years, were stratified into three age groups (<30, 30-60, >60 years), with an equal number of healthy volunteers and hypertensive patients. We performed three cSBP measurements with each device, in an alternate manner, using the Bland-Altman method to determine the level of agreement...

OBJECTIVE: Exaggerated blood pressure response to exercise is a risk factor for the development of future hypertension. In this study, we aimed to investigate the association between homocysteine, epicardial fat thickness, nonalcoholic hepatic steatosis, and exaggerated blood pressure response to exercise. PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS: We included 44 normotensive and 40 patients with exaggerated blood pressure response to exercise who have normal resting blood pressure and without a previous diagnosis of hypertension...

INTRODUCTION: Hypertension can cause anatomic changes in the left ventricle, generally leading to abnormal geometry. High-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hs-cTnT) values have been shown to be positively correlated with left ventricular hypertrophy in hypertensive patients. The current study investigated the diagnostic value of hs-cTnT in patient with nondipper hypertension (NDH) as well as determined the correlation between left ventricular geometric patterns and hs-cTnT values in hypertensive patients...

OBJECTIVE: Clinicians frequently rely on office blood pressure (BP) measurements alone to assess hypertension control, despite widespread acceptance of 24-h ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) as the reference standard in the initial diagnosis of hypertension. This study was designed to investigate how often the hypertensive status differed between concurrent office BP versus ABPM measurements, and whether any patient-specific characteristics predict the risk for misclassification by office BP...
