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...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to validate the Omron HBP-1300 oscillometric blood pressure (BP) device according to the British Hypertension Society validation protocol, in pregnant women of both medium-arm and large-arm circumferences. PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS: BP was measured sequentially in 72 women of any gestation requiring the use of a large-size (N=36, arm circumference ≥33 cm) or medium-size cuff (N=36, arm circumference <33 cm) alternating between a mercury sphygmomanometer and the Omron HBP-1300 device...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate the association of systolic blood pressure (SBP) with cardiovascular disease and all-cause mortality among elderly hypertensive patients in northern China. PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS: In this prospective cohort study, 9655 elderly hypertensive patients from Kailuan study were followed up with the incidence of primary outcomes (composite outcomes including myocardial infarction, stroke, and all-cause death) and the incidence of secondary outcomes (stroke, myocardial infarction, and all-cause death)...

OBJECTIVE: In this study, we aimed to assess the relationship between radial artery spasm (RAS) and arterial stiffness (AS) measured by the oscillometric method. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 123 consecutive patients scheduled for elective coronary angiography in a single default radial center were enrolled for the study. AS [namely, augmentation pressure; augmentation index (AIx); and pulse wave velocity] was assessed using a validated oscillometric device (Mobil-O-Graph NG 24 h PWA)...

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...

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to evaluate the accuracy of the Beneware model ABP-021 oscillometric blood pressure monitor in the general population according to the European Society of Hypertension International Protocol (ESH-IP). The accuracy of the device was assessed in relation to various clinical variables, including age, sex, BMI, and arm circumference. METHODS: Thirty-three individuals (18 men and 15 women), with a mean age of 36±14 years (age range: 20-68 years), were studied according to the recommendations of the ESH-IP...

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...

BACKGROUND: Obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) is common in people with hypertension and cardiac rhythm disorder. The objectives of this study were to determine the effect of short-term continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) on blood pressure (BP) and cardiac rhythm in Chinese patients with moderate to severe OSAHS. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Eligible patients in the two hospitals were consecutively enrolled into the prospective study. Ambulatory BP monitoring and Holter monitoring were both performed for 24 h in 214 patients who previously encountered a full night polysomnography...

CONTEXT: 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. METHODS: A total of 109 hypertensive patients were instructed to measure and record their HBP for 1 week and to bring their paper charts to their office visit. Study section 1: HBP means were calculated electronically and compared to corresponding in-office BP estimates made by physicians...

OBJECTIVE: Morning blood pressure surge (MBPS) and orthostatic hypotension (OH) play a role in the occurrence of cardiovascular events. We aimed to investigate the association between MBPS and OH in hypertensive patients under treatment. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We prospectively included 297 patients (mean age: 53.8±10.7 years, male/female: 101/196) with essential hypertension. Tilt table testing was performed for the diagnosis of OH. OH was classified into three groups as initial OH (0-15 s), classical OH (15 s to 3 min), and delayed OH (3-30 min)...

Adverse alterations in the skeletal muscle response to exercise have been noted among adults with hypertension. The influence of resting blood pressure (BP) on muscle strength is unknown. We hypothesized that adults with high BP would exhibit lower muscular strength than adults with normal BP. An isokinetic dynamometer tested 21 measures of isometric and isokinetic muscle strength. BP was measured by auscultation. Patients were categorized into having normal (<120 and <80 mmHg) or high (≥120 and/or ≥80 mmHg) BP...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the present cross-sectional study was to evaluate the autonomic nervous system by dynamic pupillometry (DP) in normotensive and hypertensive individuals with either a non-dipper-type or a dipper-type circadian rhythm of blood pressure (BP). PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 80 patients were allocated into four groups: normotensive/dipper (n=23), normotensive/nondipper (n=19), hypertensive/dipper (n=18), and hypertensive/nondipper (n=20). Pupil diameters (R0, R1, R2, and R%): latency (Lc), amplitude (Ac), velocity (Vc), and duration (Tc) of pupil contraction: latency (Ld), velocity (Vd), and duration (Td) of pupil dilatation were measured by DP...

This study aims to evaluate the relationship between mean outdoor temperature and mean daily blood pressure (BP) and heart rate (HR) among six, large, geographically and climatically diverse US cities. We collected BP and HR data from Higi stations, located in a wide range of neighborhood grocery stores and retail pharmacies, from six US cities (Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Boise, Chicago, and New York City). Outdoor daily temperature data were collected from the National Centers for Environmental Information's database...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The sphygmomanometer is a well-known device used widely for blood pressure (BP)measurement in primary cares to diagnose hypertension. It is also vastly used by patients to monitor BP for medication. Deviations in measurement might affect significantly the diagnosis. For example, a hypertensive patient might be diagnosed as normal and consequently not receive proper treatment or a healthy patient might be diagnosed as hypertensive and may receive treatment for a nonexistent disease...
