OBJECTIVE: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a systemic autoimmune inflammatory disorder which further doubles the risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Some studies suggest that in RA patients, the prevalence of hypertension increases due to prednisolone use, clinical status, genetic factors, and physical inactivity. On the other hand, dipper and non-dipper status in RA patients compared to non-RA subjects has not been investigated to our knowledge. Purpose of the study is to investigate whether non-dipper status is more deteriorated in RA patients...

AIM: Previous studies have shown the relationship between low blood pressure and high mortality in frail, disabled older adults in long-term care. However, the mechanism of this relationship is still unclear. We hypothesized that autonomic nervous activity decline is involved in the relationship between low blood pressure and high mortality. METHODS: The present prospective cohort study recruited 61 participants aged ≥75 years. The data from 24-h Holter monitoring and blood pressure recorded by ambulatory blood pressure monitoring were collected...

BACKGROUND: Automated office blood pressure (AOBP) measurement is superior to conventional office blood pressure (OBP) because it eliminates the "white coat effect" and shows a strong association with ambulatory blood pressure. METHODS AND RESULTS: We conducted a cross-sectional study in 146 participants with office hypertension, and we compared AOBP readings, taken with or without the presence of study personnel, before and after the conventional office readings to determine whether their variation in blood pressure showed a difference in blood pressure values...

Hyperuricemia has been associated in epidemiological studies with the development of obesity, hypertension, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. Nevertheless, it remains unclear whether lowering of serum uric acid (UA) alters any of the features of the metabolic syndrome. In this prospective study ( identifier: NCT01654276), 24 patients with gouty arthritis and hyperuricemia were treated for 6 months with the xanthine oxidase inhibitor febuxostat to lower serum UA to <6 mg/dL. Measurements of 24 hours ambulatory blood pressure (ABP) and serum and urine markers of the metabolic syndrome were measured at baseline and at the end of 6 months of febuxostat...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the association of short-term blood pressure variability (BPV) with cardiovascular mortality in hemodialysis (HD) patients, using a reliable index called average real variability (ARV), and to assess the factors associated with ARV in incident HD population. METHODS: A total of 103 HD patients were recruited, with 44-h ambulatory blood pressure monitoring performed after the midweek HD session. Systolic BPV was assessed by SD, coefficient of variation (CV), and ARV, respectively...

The prevalence of hypertension in children with type 1 diabetes is reported to be between 6% and 16%. This potentially modifiable cardiovascular risk factor may go undiagnosed and undertreated, particularly in children with type 1 diabetes. Recent updated Canadian clinical practice guidelines recommend blood pressure screening every 2 years in children with type 1 diabetes as well as routine use of ambulatory blood pressure monitoring. Risk factors for hypertension in type 1 diabetes include poor glycemic control, overweight and obesity and genetic predisposition for hypertension...

Hypertension occurs in more than two-thirds of patients with type 2 diabetes. In a retrospective analysis of a Framingham cohort, high blood pressure was associated with a 72% increase in the risk for all-cause death and a 57% increment in the risk for any cardiovascular disease event, making hypertension the strongest driver of cardiovascular outcomes in individuals with diabetes. One of the key aspects of hypertension management is the correct measurement of blood pressure; various types of monitoring in both clinic and ambulatory settings are reviewed here...

People with diabetes often have difficulty reaching their blood pressure targets and are labelled as having resistant hypertension. Clinicians often move quickly to screen such people for secondary causes of hypertension; however, such causes are rare, and resistant hypertension usually has other explanations that are significantly more common. By using a structured approach to resistant hypertension, clinicians can assist patients to reach their target blood pressure levels. Step 1 is to determine out-of-office blood pressure measurements using home or ambulatory blood pressure monitors...

OBJECTIVE: Social interaction quality is related to cardiovascular functioning. Trait emotional reactivity may amplify cardiovascular responses to social interactions, but is often examined as a tendency to react to negative events. We took a broader approach by examining the joint effects of positive and negative emotional reactivity and social interaction quality on ambulatory blood pressure (ABP) and heart rate (HR) responses to daily social interactions. METHODS: Participants were part of a larger study on BP and cardiovascular health (N = 805; MAge  = 45...

BACKGROUND: Hypertension diagnosed by blood pressure (BP) measured in the clinic is associated with rapid kidney function decline (RKFD) and incident chronic kidney disease (CKD). The extent to which hypertension defined using out-of-clinic BP measurements is associated with these outcomes is unclear. METHODS: We evaluated the association of any masked hypertension (daytime SBP/DBP ≥ 135/85 mmHg, night-time SBP/DBP ≥ 120/70 mmHg or 24-h SBP/DBP ≥ 130/80 mmHg) with RKFD and incident CKD among 676 African-Americans in the Jackson Heart Study with clinic-measured SBP/DBP less than 140/90 mmHg who completed ambulatory BP monitoring in 2000-2004...

OBJECTIVE: Masked hypertension is reportedly common in young adults. However, it is unknown if these masked hypertensive individuals already present with organ damage. We determined whether a relationship exists between left ventricular structure and function, and masked hypertension in young healthy adults. METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, we included 774 black and white men and women (aged 20-30 years) who had successful ambulatory blood pressure monitoring readings (>70% valid readings) and valid echocardiography done...

We aimed to assess the intrasubject reproducibility of a technology-based levodopa (LD) therapeutic monitoring protocol administered in supervised versus unsupervised conditions in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). The study design was pilot, intrasubject, single center, open and prospective. Twenty patients were recruited. Patients performed a standardized monitoring protocol instrumented by an ad hoc embedded platform after their usual first morning LD dose in two different randomized ambulatory sessions: one under a physician's supervision, the other self-administered...

The clinical course of outpatients with advanced chronic kidney disease requires a close monitoring by the nephrology team, in order to identify emerging clinical problems promptly and prevent subsequent complications. With the aim of improving the outpatient management in our clinic dedicated to advanced renal failure, we implemented the "Nephrology Clinic Triage" (NCT). This organizational model is coordinated by the nephrologist and supported by nurses. In case the outpatients, or their caregivers, have clinical problems or need advice, they can easily get in touch with a nephrology nurse by a dedicated telephone line...

INTRODUCTION: Recently new treatment options have substantially increased survival for patients with relapsed and/or refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM). Among these, proteasome inhibitors (PI), such as bortezomib and carfilzomib, offer high response rate and prolonged survival. These agents are generally well tolerated but demonstrated a significant cardiovascular toxicity, mostly for regimen containing carfilzomib. AIM: To assess the cardiovascular damage in patients treated with PI for RRMM...
