Ischemic stroke during nocturnal sleep, known as wake-up stroke (WUS), has been reported to have more severe symptoms and worse outcomes than non-WUS. However, studies on risk factors for WUS are scarce and the association between nocturnal blood pressure (BP) and WUS is unclear. In this study, we used ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) to examine the association between WUS and variation in nocturnal BP. A total of 369 patients with ischemic stroke within one week were consecutively enrolled. ABPM was applied 1-2weeks after the ictus because of possible reactive increments of BP; antihypertensive medications were delayed until ABPM...

INTRODUCTION: During sleep there is reduction of blood pressure (BP) caused by a decrease of the sympathetic nervous tone. This nocturnal "dipping" phenomenon, assessable with ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM), is blunted with increasing age. AIM: To assess the effect of hospitalization on night-time BP fall in old-elderly patients. METHODS: We analysed 78 ABPM of old-elderly hospitalized patients (mean age 91 ± 0.5 years) and those of 18 outpatients as control group...

BACKGROUND: The effectiveness of nonpharmacological interventions in blood pressure reduction has been evidenced by several studies. Nevertheless, as adherence to a low-sodium diet is poor, interventions regarding habit changing should be of a motivational nature in order to develop the ability of overcoming obstacles regarding sodium-restriction behavior. The present study aims to describe the protocol and randomization of a clinical trial design in order to evaluate the effectiveness of an educational intervention based on Dietary Sodium Restriction Questionnaire (DSRQ) scores...

BACKGROUND: Repeated exposure to household air pollution may intermittently raise blood pressure (BP) and affect cardiovascular outcomes. We investigated whether hourly carbon monoxide (CO) exposures were associated with acute increases in ambulatory blood pressure (ABP); and secondarily, if switching to an improved cookstove was associated with BP changes. We also evaluated the feasibility of using 24-h ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) in a cohort of pregnant women in Ghana...

REVIEW
Caitlin G Peterson, Yosuke Miyashita
Hypertension (HTN) is a significant global health problem, responsible for 7.5 million deaths each year worldwide. The prevalence of HTN is increasing in the pediatric population likely attributed to the increase in childhood obesity. Recent work has also shown that blood pressure (BP) tends to track from childhood to adulthood including BP-related target organ damage. In the last 25-30 years, pediatric use of ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) has been expanding mainly in the setting of initial elevated BP measurement evaluation, HTN therapy efficacy follow-up, and renal disease...

BACKGROUND: High aldosterone level may contribute to pathogenesis of hypertension, vessels damage and cardiovascular system deterioration in chronic kidney disease patients. Besides its classical action via mineralocorticoid receptor, aldosterone is also involved in cell growth, inflammation, oxidative stress, endothelial dysfunction and exerts fibroproliferative effects. The aim of the study was to assess whether aldosterone antagonist treatment may influence serum level of inflammatory, fibrosis, thrombosis and mineral-bone metabolism markers in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients and blood pressure, aortic stiffness, echocardiographic indices after 12 months of treatment...
