OBJECTIVE: To investigate the impact of talking with doctors on blood pressure (BP) in outpatients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This study included 122 hypertensive and 78 normotensive outpatients. BP was measured initially in silence with oscillometric BP monitors three times at 1-min intervals as follows: pre-1, pre-2, and pre-3. BP was then measured with the same device immediately, at 3 min, and at 5 min after talking commenced as follows: during-1, during-3, and during-5...

INTRODUCTION: It is believed that Ramadan fasting regulates blood pressure, heart rate, and other cardiovascular risk factors. This study aimed to investigate the effect of Ramadan fasting on ambulatory blood pressure in hypertensive patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This prospective, observational study was carried out in two groups: one group included hypertensive patients treated with two antihypertensive agents (n=6) and the other group included healthy individuals (n=12)...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Salt-sensitive (SS) patients more frequently showed a nondipper blood pressure pattern and were associated with more serious target organ damage than non-SS patients. We aimed to investigate whether potassium supplement can improve the blunted nocturnal blood pressure fall in SS patients exposed to a high-salt diet. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Approximately 49 normotensive and mildly hypertensive Chinese patients received a study protocol of a 3 days of baseline examination, 7 days of a low-salt diet (3 g NaCl/day), 7 days of a high-salt diet (18 g NaCl/day), and 7 days of a high-salt diet with a potassium supplement (18 g NaCl and 4...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility of self-monitoring of blood pressure with a semiautomatic device in pregnant women. PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS: Women attending routine obstetrical ultrasound scanning were invited to participate. The hospital staff initially demonstrated and instructed each participant in correct measurement and then took three measurements on both arms. The participant then repeated the measurements and filled an evaluation questionnaire...

OBJECTIVE: The present study aimed to evaluate the accuracy of the automated oscillometric upper-arm blood pressure monitor YuWell YE690A for blood pressure measurement according to the International Protocol of the European Society of Hypertension revision 2010. PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS: Systolic and diastolic blood pressures were measured sequentially in 33 adult Chinese (12 women, 44.2 years of mean age) using a mercury sphygmomanometer (two observers) and the YE690A device (one supervisor)...

The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between body adiposity index (BAI) and pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH) in third-trimester pregnant women. This study included 126 women in the third trimester of pregnancy. All participants completed anthropometric measurements and ultrasonic testing. The formula of BAI was hip circumference (cm)/height (m)-18. The frequency of PIH were significantly higher in the upper tertile group (31.0%) than in the low tertile group (7.1%) and the middle tertile group (4...

BACKGROUNDS: Orthostatic hypotension (OH) is associated with cardiovascular diseases, heart failure, and increased mortality. We evaluated whether OH was affected by cardiac structure and function or autonomic function in elderly hypertensive outpatients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In 64 hypertension patients (mean age 74.2±1.7 years old), we evaluated changes in blood pressure (BP) and heart rate variability before and after standing up using the MemCalc system. In addition, we retrospectively reviewed their medical records and echocardiographic data...

OBJECTIVE: Adherence to antihypertensive medications is often less than optimal. Research suggests that patients have limited confidence regarding whether office blood pressure (BP) assessments represent their 'true' BP, which may further promote poor adherence to BP-lowering medication. We assessed peoples' confidence in the methods of BP assessment and examined the associations between patients' confidence levels and medication adherence comparing office and home BP-monitoring techniques...

The aim of this study was to define the accuracy of UM-211, an automated oscillometric device for office use coupled to several cuffs for different arm sizes, according to the International Protocol of the European Society of Hypertension. The validation was performed in 33 individuals. Their mean age was 59.6±12.9 years, systolic blood pressure (BP) was 144.3±21.5 mmHg (range: 96-184 mmHg), diastolic BP was 86.8±18.5 mmHg (range: 48-124 mmHg), and arm circumference was 30.2±4.3 cm (range: 23-39 cm)...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate the association between ambulatory blood pressure variability and vasodilator function in a cohort of normotensive middle-aged individuals. PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study of 285 randomly selected 40-59-year-old normotensive participants who underwent 24-h ambulatory blood pressure monitoring and brachial artery ultrasound assessment. Systolic and diastolic blood pressure variability (BPV) of 24-h, daytime, and night-time were calculated using the coefficients of variation (CV) and the average real variability (ARV) index...

BACKGROUND: To date, few studies have analyzed postexercise hypotension (PEH) in hypertensive patients with different levels of physical fitness. AIM: Therefore, this study aimed to compare PEH in trained and sedentary hypertensive individuals. METHODS: Fifty-one well-controlled hypertensive patients of both sexes were assigned to a trained group [60.4±9.4 years; resting blood pressure (BP)=126.3±5.4/75.0±6.3 mmHg; VO2peak=27.3±4.6 ml kg/min] and 58 sedentary hypertensive patients of both sexes were assigned to a sedentary group (63...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: Recommendations to support the back and feet during blood pressure (BP) measurement are not always followed in clinical practice. Our objective was to determine to what extent back and feet support affects mean oscillometric BP measurements. PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS: Eighty-five consecutive, consenting participants 18 years or older with systolic BP readings 80-220 mmHg and diastolic BP readings 50-120 mmHg and arm circumferences of 25-43 cm were recruited...

BACKGROUND: An ideal arterial pressure monitoring system for perioperative care is required to be accurate, noninvasive, continuous, and risk free. Although several continuous noninvasive arterial pressures (CNAP) are determined on the finger, a new wrist CNAP monitoring system was developed. This prospective study was designed as a randomized-controlled trial to assess its validity in comparison with invasive arterial pressure (IAP) monitoring. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Sixty patients undergoing elective surgery under general anesthesia were enrolled...

OBJECTIVE: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has been identified as the most common secondary contributing factor for the development and worsening of hypertension. However, the underlying relationships between blood pressure variability (BPV) and OSA are still not very clear. Therefore, we investigated the influences of OSA on BPV in hypertensive patients and explored the potential pathophysiologic mechanisms. PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS: Ambulatory blood pressure (BP) monitoring was carried out and polysomnography was performed to detect sleep apnea...
