Persistent high BLOOD PRESSURE due to KIDNEY DISEASES, such as those involving the renal parenchyma, the renal vasculature, or tumors that secrete RENIN.
A response by the BARORECEPTORS to increased BLOOD PRESSURE. Increased pressure stretches BLOOD VESSELS which activates the baroreceptors in the vessel walls. The net response of the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM is a reduction of central sympathetic outflow. This reduces blood pressure both by decreasing peripheral VASCULAR RESISTANCE and by lowering CARDIAC OUTPUT. Because the baroreceptors are tonically active, the baroreflex can compensate rapidly for both increases and decreases in blood pressure.

The volume of BLOOD passing through the HEART per unit of time. It is usually expressed as liters (volume) per minute so as not to be confused with STROKE VOLUME (volume per beat).
A BLOOD PRESSURE regulating system of interacting components that include RENIN; ANGIOTENSINOGEN; ANGIOTENSIN CONVERTING ENZYME; ANGIOTENSIN I; ANGIOTENSIN II; and angiotensinase. Renin, an enzyme produced in the kidney, acts on angiotensinogen, an alpha-2 globulin produced by the liver, forming ANGIOTENSIN I. Angiotensin-converting enzyme, contained in the lung, acts on angiotensin I in the plasma converting it to ANGIOTENSIN II, an extremely powerful vasoconstrictor. Angiotensin II causes contraction of the arteriolar and renal VASCULAR SMOOTH MUSCLE, leading to retention of salt and water in the KIDNEY and increased arterial blood pressure. In addition, angiotensin II stimulates the release of ALDOSTERONE from the ADRENAL CORTEX, which in turn also increases salt and water retention in the kidney. Angiotensin-converting enzyme also breaks down BRADYKININ, a powerful vasodilator and component of the KALLIKREIN-KININ SYSTEM.

Procedures for finding the mathematical function which best describes the relationship between a dependent variable and one or more independent variables. In linear regression (see LINEAR MODELS) the relationship is constrained to be a straight line and LEAST-SQUARES ANALYSIS is used to determine the best fit. In logistic regression (see LOGISTIC MODELS) the dependent variable is qualitative rather than continuously variable and LIKELIHOOD FUNCTIONS are used to find the best relationship. In multiple regression, the dependent variable is considered to depend on more than a single independent variable.

Effect of alcohol abstinence on blood pressure: assessment by 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring. (1/1099)

Several studies have shown that cessation of alcohol drinking reduces blood pressure (BP). However, attempts to reproduce these findings by ambulatory BP monitoring (ABPM) have shown inconsistent results. The aim of the present study was to assess the effect of 1 month of proven abstinence from alcohol on the 24-hour BP profile in heavy alcohol drinkers. Forty-two men who were heavy drinkers (>100 g of pure ethanol per day) were consecutively admitted to a general ward for voluntary alcohol detoxification. On the day of admission, they received a total dose of 2 g/kg of ethanol diluted in orange juice in 5 divided doses, and a 24-hour ABPM was performed. A new 24-hour BP monitoring in the same environmental conditions was performed after 1 month of proven alcohol abstinence while the subjects were receiving the same amount of fluid but without the addition of alcohol. After 1 month of proven alcohol abstinence, BP and heart rate (HR) significantly decreased. The reduction was 7.2 mm Hg for 24-hour systolic BP (SBP) (95% CI, 4.5 to 9.9), 6.6 mm Hg for 24-hour diastolic BP (DBP) (95% CI, 4.2 to 9.0), and 7.9 bpm for HR (95% CI, 5.1 to 10.7). The proportion of alcoholic patients considered hypertensive on the basis of 24-hour BP criteria (daytime SBP >/=135 mm Hg or daytime DBP >/=85 mm Hg) fell from 42% during alcohol drinking to 12% after 1 month of complete abstinence. Abstinence did not modify either the long-term BP variability, assessed by SD of 24-hour BP, or its circadian profile. We conclude that abstinence in heavy alcohol drinkers significantly reduces BP assessed by 24-hour ABPM and that this reduction is clinically relevant. These results show that heavy alcohol consumption has an important effect on BP, and thus cessation of alcohol consumption must be recommended as a priority for hypertensive alcohol drinkers.  (+info)

Alteration of circadian time structure of blood pressure caused by night shift schedule. (2/1099)

The effects of night shift schedules on circadian time structure of blood pressure were studied in seven healthy young subjects by continuous monitoring of blood pressure every 30 min for 72 h. In the control experiment, subjects were instructed to sleep at regular times with the light off at 00.00 h and the light on at 07.00 h. In the shift experiment, they were instructed to go to bed at 06.00 h and wake up at 11.00 h. The circadian rhythm of blood pressure rapidly phase delayed by 3.5 h in the second night shift day as a group phenomenon. Individual differences in changes in power spectral patterns of blood pressure were found in the night shift schedule. Ultradian rhythmicity of blood pressure was more pronounced in three subjects, whereas the circadian rhythmicity was maintained in four subjects. These findings held when the adaptation to shift work was taken into account.  (+info)

Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring and progression in patients with IgA nephropathy. (3/1099)

BACKGROUND: Hypertension is a recognized marker of poor prognosis in IgA nephropathy. METHODS: The present study investigated the prevalence of white-coat hypertension, the diurnal rhythm of blood pressure (BP), the effectiveness of antihypertensive drug therapy, and the effect of the above on the progression of the kidney disease in IgA nephropathy. One hundred twenty-six IgA nephropathy patients were selected consecutively for 24-h ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM). Fifty-five patients were normotensive and 71 were treated hypertensives. Their antihypertensive drugs were angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEI) alone or in combination with calcium-channel blockers (CCB). RESULTS: The mean night-time BP of normotensives (108+/-9/67+/-6 mmHg) was significantly lower than their day-time BP (125+/-8/82+/-7 mmHg, P<0.05). There was no significant difference between the mean day-time and night-time BP in hypertensive patients (125+/-9/82+/-7 mmHg vs 128+/-10/85+/-9 mmHg). The circadian variation of BP was preserved ('dippers') in 82% of the normotensive and 7% of the hypertensive patients (P<0.001). There were 10 'white-coat hypertensives' among the patients classified as normotensives with ABPM (mean office blood pressure 149+/-7/96+/-8 mmHg, 24-h blood pressure 127+/-6/83+/-5 mmHg, P<0.05) and 14 among treated hypertensives (mean office BP 152+/-8/98+/-6 mmHg, 24-h BP 130+/-4/85+/-8 mmHg, P<0.05). There was no difference in mean day-time BP among normotensive and treated hypertensive patients (125+/-8/81+/-5 mmHg vs 128+/-10/85+/-9 mmHg). Hypertensives had significantly higher night-time BP (125+/-9/85+/-9 mmHg) than normotensives (108+/-9/67+/-6 mmHg, P<0.001). There was no difference in serum creatinine levels among the different groups at the time of the ABPM. However, thirty-six+/-4.1 months after the ABPM, hypertensive patients (n=52) had higher serum creatinine levels (124+/-32 micromol/l) than at the time of the ABPM (101+/-28 micromol/l). The serum creatinine of normotensive patients (n=43) did not change during the follow-up period. 'Non-dipper' normotensives (n=10) had significantly higher serum creatinine levels at the end of the follow-up period than at its beginning (106+/-17 micromol/l vs 89+/-18 micromol/l, P<0.05). There was no increase in serum creatinine of 'dipper' normotensives. The mean serum creatinine of 'white-coat hypertensives' was significantly higher at the end of the study period than at its beginning. CONCLUSIONS: There is no diurnal blood pressure variation in most of the hypertensive IgA nephropathy patients. ACEI and CCB treatment have better effect on day-time than night-time hypertension. The lack of the circadian rhythm and 'white-coat hypertension' seems to accelerate the progression of IgA nephropathy.  (+info)

Effectiveness of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D supplementation on blood pressure reduction in a pseudohypoparathyroidism patient with high renin activity. (4/1099)

A 42-year-old man had biochemical and somatic abnormalities compatible with pseudohypoparathyroidism type I (PsHP) and also had high plasma renin activity (PRA). After 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D (calcitriol) supplementation the systolic/diastolic blood pressure, assessed by 24-hour non-invasive ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, was reduced from 145/96 mm Hg to 128/85 mm Hg with normalization of the serum calcium level and its related hormones, as well as decreased PRA. Calcitriol supplementation successfully reduced the blood pressure in this patient with PsHP and a high PRA, suggesting that calcium-related hormones and/or the renin-angiotensin system were involved in lowering the blood pressure.  (+info)

Effects of coffee on ambulatory blood pressure in older men and women: A randomized controlled trial. (5/1099)

This study assessed the effects of regular coffee drinking on 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure (ABP) in normotensive and hypertensive older men and women. Twenty-two normotensive and 26 hypertensive, nonsmoking men and women, with a mean age of 72.1 years (range, 54 to 89 years), took part in the study. After 2 weeks of a caffeine-free diet, subjects were randomized to continue with the caffeine-free diet and abstain from caffeine-containing drinks or drink instant coffee (5 cups per day, equivalent to 300 mg caffeine per day) in addition to the caffeine-free diet for a further 2 weeks. Change in systolic and diastolic blood pressures (SBP, DBP) determined by 24-hour ambulatory BP monitoring showed significant interactions between coffee drinking and hypertension status. In the hypertensive group, rise in mean 24-hour SBP was greater by 4.8 (SEM, 1.3) mm Hg (P=0.031) and increase in mean 24-hour DBP was higher by 3.0 (1.0) mm Hg (P=0.010) in coffee drinkers than in abstainers. There were no significant differences between abstainers and coffee drinkers in the normotensive group for 24-hour, daytime, or nighttime SBP or DBP. In older men and women with treated or untreated hypertension, ABP increased in coffee drinkers and decreased in abstainers. Restriction of coffee intake may be beneficial in older hypertensive individuals.  (+info)

Effects of nisoldipine and lisinopril on left ventricular mass and function in diabetic nephropathy. (6/1099)

OBJECTIVE: To compare the effects of the calcium channel blocker, nisoldipine, and the ACE inhibitor, lisinopril, on left ventricular mass (LVM) and systolic function in type 1 diabetic patients with diabetic nephropathy. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: M-mode echocardiography was performed in 50 hypertensive type 1 diabetic patients with diabetic nephropathy enrolled in a 1-year, randomized, double-blind, parallel study of antihypertensive treatment with nisoldipine CC (20-40 mg/day) or lisinopril (10-20 mg/day). Ambulatory 24-h blood pressure was measured with the Takeda TM 2420 device (A & D, Tokyo, Japan) every 3 months. Three patients dropped out and seven patients were excluded due to technical difficulties. RESULTS: The 24-h diastolic blood pressure was reduced from 83 to 80 mmHg in the nisoldipine group (P = 0.06) and from 85 to 80 mmHg in the lisinopril group (P = 0.02). The decline in systolic blood pressure was not significant with any of the two treatments, and no difference in reduction of blood pressure was seen between groups. LVM corrected for body surface area (LVMI) was comparable between groups at baseline and increased from 96 +/- 5 to 107 +/- 6 g/m2 (mean +/- SEM; P = 0.007) in the nisoldipine group and from 95 +/- 4 to 103 +/- 5 g/m2 (P = 0.03) in the lisinopril group. The mean difference between the change in LVMI in the two groups was 2.9 (95% CI 6.8 to 12.7) g/m2. The prevalence of left ventricular hypertrophy rose from 18 (95% CI 6-30) to 30% (16-44) during the study period. A multiple linear regression analysis revealed that after 1 year of treatment, LVMI increased with higher systolic blood pressure level and declining glomerular filtration rate (R2 = 0.25). Fractional shortening was within normal range at baseline, 42 +/- 1 vs. 41 +/- 1% with nisoldipine and lisinopril, respectively, and did not change during follow-up. CONCLUSIONS: Antihypertensive treatment with nisoldipine or lisinopril to bring diastolic blood pressure level within the normal target range does not hinder a rise in LVMI in type 1 diabetic patients with diabetic nephropathy.  (+info)

G-Protein beta3 subunit C825T variant and ambulatory blood pressure in essential hypertension. (7/1099)

Recent studies have identified a novel polymorphism (C825T) of the gene encoding the beta3 subunit of heterotrimeric G proteins (Gbeta3) associated with enhanced activation of G proteins, which appears to be more common in hypertensive patients. In the present study we examine the relationship between this genetic variant and hypertension in 479 white patients with established essential hypertension recruited from the hypertension clinic of the Universitatsklinikum Benjamin Franklin in Berlin, Germany, and 1000 normotensive gender- and age-matched controls. All patients were screened for the presence of secondary hypertension and were further characterized by ambulatory blood pressure measurements performed in 295 treated and 184 untreated patients. Genotype distribution for the Gbeta3-C825T genotype in patients (CC=204, CT=224, TT=51) was significantly different from that in controls (CC=514, CT=412, TT=74; chi2=11.5, P<0.01), and the T allele was associated with an odds ratio of 1.5 (95% CI, 1.1 to 2.2) versus non-T carriers for the presence of hypertension. However, in both the whole group and the untreated subgroup, blood pressure levels between the genotypic groups were virtually identical. Furthermore, age of onset of hypertension and number of antihypertensive medications (in treated patients) were similar between the genotypic groups. Thus, while our data confirm the association between the Gbeta3-C825T variant and essential hypertension, they do not support the hypothesis that this marker is associated with more severe blood pressure in patients with already established hypertension.  (+info)

Ambulatory blood pressure and left ventricular mass in normotensive patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease. (8/1099)

Higher left ventricular mass (LVM) has been found in early stages of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). The mechanisms involved in the increase of LVM are unknown. To investigate whether LVM in ADPKD may be influenced by abnormal diurnal BP variations, the 24-h ambulatory BP profile was analyzed in a group of young normotensive ADPKD patients. Ambulatory BP monitoring and two-dimensional echocardiography were performed in 26 young normotensive ADPKD with normal renal function and in 26 healthy control subjects. LVM index was higher in ADPKD patients than in controls (90.8+/-19.6 g/m2 versus 73.9+/-16.1 g/m2, P = 0.001). Average 24-h and daytime systolic, diastolic, and mean BP were similar in both groups. Nighttime diastolic and mean BP, but not systolic BP, were greater in ADPKD patients. The average and percent nocturnal decrease of systolic BP was lower in ADPKD patients than in control subjects (10.0 mm Hg [-3 to 24] versus 15.5 mm Hg [-4 to 31], P = 0.009, and 9.0% [-2 to 22] versus 14.2% [-2 to 25], P = 0.016, respectively). On the basis of their profile BP patterns, 54% of ADPKD subjects and 31% of controls were classified as nondippers (P = 0.092). There were no differences between dippers and nondippers in left ventricular wall thickness, chamber dimensions, and mass indexes. In ADPKD patients, simple regression analysis showed that LVM index was correlated with 24-h, daytime, and nighttime systolic BP. On multiple regression analysis, the 24-h systolic BP was the only variable linked to LVM index. It is concluded that young normotensive ADPKD patients have higher LVM that is closely related to the ambulatory systolic BP. The nocturnal fall in BP is attenuated in these patients, although it is not associated with the higher LVH that they present.  (+info)

PY - 1999/1/1. Y1 - 1999/1/1. N2 - Clinic blood pressure measurements have only limited ability to determine which hypertensive patients are at greatest risk of cardiovascular events. Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring allows for noninvasive measurement of blood pressure throughout the 24-hour period. This may help to clarify discrepancies between blood pressure values obtained in and out of the clinic and confirm the presence of white-coat hypertension, broadly defined as an elevated clinic blood pressure but a normal ambulatory blood pressure. Ambulatory blood pressure values have been shown to have a better relationship to cardiovascular morbidity and mortality and end-organ damage than clinic blood pressure values. Further, patients with white-coat hypertension appear to be at greater risk of ...

Y1 - 2015. N2 - Hypertension is common in children with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and is a major determinant of CKD progression. Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) has been proposed to be better in detecting hypertension as compared to casual blood pressure (CBP). This study aims to study the usefulness of ABPM in detecting masked hypertension, evaluating the adequacy of blood pressure (BP) control and predicting left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) amongst children with CKD. A prospective cross-sectional study of 46 children with stage 3-5 CKD was conducted at the Pediatric Nephrology department of a tertiary hospital in South India. All children underwent CBP, ABPM and an echocardiography. Results were categorized as normal BP; confirmed hypertension; masked hypertension and white coat ...
Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) measures blood pressure at regular intervals. It is believed to be able to reduce the white coat hypertension effect in which a patients blood pressure is elevated during the examination process due to nervousness and anxiety caused by being in a clinical setting. Out-of-office measurements are highly recommended as an adjunct to office measurements by almost all hypertension organizations. 24-hour, non-invasive ambulatory blood pressure (BP) monitoring allows estimates of cardiac GFrisk factors including excessive BP variability or patterns of circadian variability known to increase risks of cardiovascular event. Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring allows blood pressure to be intermittently monitored during sleep, and is useful to determine whether the patient is a dipper or non-dipper-that is to say whether or not blood pressure falls at night compared to daytime values. A night time fall is normal and desirable. It correlates with relationship ...

Background: Hypertension is a major public health concern in Burkina Faso. Its management relies on in-office medical setting blood pressure monitoring which is known to be an imperfect diagnosis tool. Objective: This study aims to assess the contribution of ambulatory blood pressure monitoring in the management of hypertension at Blaise Compaoré University Hospital. Methods: A monocentric descriptive retrospective study was conducted in the cardiology outpatient unit of Blaise Compaoré University Hospital. Patients aged at least 18 years who underwent ambulatory blood pressure monitoring between March 2013 and June 2015 were enrolled. Hypertension was defined as follows: average blood pressure over 24 hours > 130/80 mmHg, or diurnal blood pressure > 135/85 mmHg, or nocturnal blood pressure >120/70 mmHg. Data were analyzed using the SPSS 20.0 software. The threshold for significance was set at 5% for a validity interval at 95%. Chi square test was used for the statistical analysis.

Background: Masked hypertension is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular events, while white coat hypertension is considered to be a relatively lower risk condition; both are defined by the difference between awake ambulatory blood pressure (ABP) and office blood pressure (OBP). We review evidence on the relationship of this difference to age.. Method: We performed a systematic review of papers in PubMed using the combination of terms office and ambulatory or home blood pressure (HBP), and selected articles in which the OBP and awake ABP (or HBP) were presented. A random effects model was used for the meta-analyses.. Results: In the 18 studies of adults (N=8779), OBP was higher than awake ABP (the difference; 2.0±0.04/1.0±0.03 mmHg, both P,0.001); however, in the 5 studies of children and youth (N=1829), awake ABP was higher than OBP (7.9±0.12/7.9±0.10 mmHg, both P,0.001). In studies of general populations, OBP became higher than awake ABP after age 49.1/43.0 in women ...

Results: The 20 eligible studies used various thresholds for the diagnosis of hypertension, and only seven studies (clinic) and three studies (home) could be
Introduction. Hypertension is a primary risk factor for cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, and renal failure. It is well known that the quantity of dietary salt intake plays a role in the pathogenesis of primary hypertension. Increased sensitivity of blood pressure to excess sodium affects 50% of patients with primary hypertension.1,2 Dietary salt intake causes an increase in blood pressure, and is associated with renal and cardiovascular diseases, including left ventricular hypertrophy and microalbuminuria.3-5 Spontaneous variation in blood pressure is referred to as blood pressure variability (BPV), and is classified as short-term BPV and long-term BPV.6,7 Fluctuation during a 24-h period is referred to as short-term BPV and is based on 24-h ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM). Variation between successive ABPM measurements is known as average real variability (ARV), which is mathematically calculated.8,9 BPV was reported to be associated with hypertension-related target ...
Increased blood pressure is a leading risk for premature death and disability.1 It is estimated that hypertension is the most costly cardiovascular disease, with overall direct costs to health similar to that for stroke, myocardial infarction and other ischemic heart diseases combined.2 Therefore, efforts to detect and control hypertension are of great importance for public health.. Recently, the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence in the United Kingdom updated their recommendations for the management of hypertension.3 One of the most substantive changes to their recommendations includes the incorporation of home and ambulatory blood pressure monitoring into the diagnosis of hypertension. These guidelines recommend ambulatory blood pressure monitoring if a patient has had two elevated blood pressure readings (≥ 140/90 mm Hg) during an office visit. If ambulatory monitoring is not available or tolerated, home monitoring should be used. The guidelines recommend pharmacotherapy ...
BACKGROUND: Hypertension is a common complication and is an important risk factor for graft loss and adverse cardiovascular outcomes in pediatric kidney transplantation. Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) is the preferred method to characterize blood pressure status. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective review of a large cohort of children and young adults with kidney transplant to estimate the prevalence of abnormal ambulatory blood pressure (ABP), assess factors associated with abnormal ABP, and examine whether ambulatory hypertension is associated with worse allograft function and left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). RESULTS: Two hundred twenty-one patients had ABPM, and 142 patients had echocardiographic results available for analysis. One third of the patients had masked hypertension, 32% had LVH, and 38% had estimated glomerular filtration rate less than 60 mL/min per 1.73 m. African-American race/Hispanic ethnicity and requirement for more than 1 antihypertensive medication were

The study will include both previously treated and untreated individuals.. Before randomization and in the end of the study, measurements will be performed using all three blood pressure monitoring methods (Conventional, Ambulatory and Home) as well as assessment of target organ damage (microalbuminuria, electrocardiogram, echocardiogram, carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity and central blood pressure).. The participants will be randomized into one of the two arms. Diagnosis and titration will be decided according to either Conventional and Ambulatory blood pressure measurements or according to Home blood pressure measurements. Subjects will be followed up for one year. ...
OBJECTIVES: This study was carried out to evaluate the effects of industrial noise on blood pressure and heart rate. METHODS: Resting blood pressure, hearing loss, and general characteristics of the 102 subjects who were engaged in a factory in Pusan were measured from March to June for two years, in 1998 and 1999. With noise dosimeter, noise exposure level was measured from 8 A.M. to 4 P.M. Ambulatory blood pressure and heart rate were also measured every 30 minutes from 8 A.M. to 10 P. M. RESULTS: Controlling for age, smoking, and Quetelets index, in subjects of under 40 years old exposed to higher than 85dBA, noise exposure and systolic blood pressure had a statistically significant correlation, and the same result was obtained in all subjects. The daily variability of ambulatory blood pressure and heart rate were observed in older than 40 years old group, but only heart rate in under 40 years old. CONCLUSIONS: The blood pressure and heart rate would be elevated when the workers exposed to ...
Upper limits of normal ambulatory blood pressure (ABP) have been a matter of debate in recent years. Current diagnostic thresholds for ABP rely mainly on statistical parameters derived from reference populations. Recent findings from the International Database of Ambulatory Blood Pressure in Relation to Cardiovascular Outcome (IDACO) provide outcome-driven thresholds for ABP Rounded systolic/diastolic thresholds for optimal ABP were found to be 115/75 mm Hg for 24 hours, 120/80 mm Hg for daytime, and 100/65 mm Hg for nighttime. The corresponding rounded thresholds for normal ABP were 125/75 mm Hg, 130/85 mm Hg, and 110/70 mm Hg, respectively, and those for ambulatory hypertension were 130/80 mm Hg, 140/85 mm Hg, and 120/70 mm Hg. However, in clinical practice, any diagnostic threshold for blood pressure needs to be assessed in the context of the patients overall risk profile. The IDACO database is therefore being updated with additional population cohorts to enable the construction of ...

Patients with coronary heart disease (CHD) are often characterized by a blunted nighttime BP dipping pattern. The present study compared the effects of 2 behavioral intervention programs, aerobic exercise (EX) and stress management (SM) training, with a usual care (UC) control group on BP dipping in a sample of CHD patients. Methods This was a secondary analysis of a randomized, controlled trial with allocation concealment and blinded outcome assessment in 134 patients with stable CHD and exercise-induced myocardial ischemia. Nighttime BP dipping was ...
An exception to this is those with very high blood pressure readings especially when there is poor organ function.[79] Initial assessment of the hypertensive people should include a complete history and physical examination. With the availability of 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitors and home blood pressure machines, the importance of not wrongly diagnosing those who have white coat hypertension has led to a change in protocols. In the United Kingdom, current best practice is to follow up a single raised clinic reading with ambulatory measurement, or less ideally with home blood pressure monitoring over the course of 7 days.[79] The United States Preventive Services Task Force also recommends getting measurements outside of the healthcare environment.[80] Pseudohypertension in the elderly or noncompressibility artery syndrome may also require consideration. This condition is believed to be due to calcification of the arteries resulting in abnormally high blood pressure readings with a ...

Hypertension is perhaps the most common reason for initiation of lifelong drug treatment and ongoing management by doctors. Six prospective studies have shown that ambulatory blood pressures may be a much better predictor of target organ damage and subsequent adverse events than measurements made in a clinic.1 As these results were found in research studies and mostly not in typical primary care settings, however, patients may have had a higher alerting response than in everyday settings with their family doctor or nurse. It is thus important to clarify whether the white coat effect applies equally outside a research study and in typical family practice settings.. Why is ambulatory monitoring not commonly used to make management decisions? The problem is not just extrapolating results from research or secondary care to routine settings but that clinic derived thresholds have been used in previous research to make treatment decisions. However, several lines of evidence show that patients with ...

The present study demonstrated that, in this hypertensive population without a history of cerebrovascular disease, the prevalence of microbleeds in the brain was 16.1% (95% CI, 11.1% to 21.0%), and that the daytime, nighttime, and 24-hour BP levels and a diagnosis of nocturnal hypertension were associated with the presence of BMBs, independent of age and sex, other cardiovascular risk factors, and coexisting ischemic brain damage.. The prevalence of BMBs in our hypertensive cohort is approximately 3 times higher than that reported in the general population.4 Importantly, in our study the microbleed-count could not have been influenced by a history of symptomatic cerebrovascular disease as this was an exclusion criterion.31,32 This, together with the observed associations between ambulatory BP and BMBs, suggests that hypertension is a substantial and independent risk factor for the development of BMBs.. The associations between the various ambulatory BP components and the presence of BMBs were ...

Nondipping nocturnal blood pressure, an independent cardiovascular risk factor (2), is closely associated with microalbuminuria regardless of usual blood pressure level. A recent study has shown that nondipping nocturnal blood pressure precedes microalbuminuria in normotensive diabetic patients (3). Thus, reduction of higher nocturnal blood pressure in normotensive diabetic patients with nondipping nocturnal blood pressure may have contributed to the reduction of urinary albumin excretion seen by Zandbergen and colleagues ...
Introduction 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) is the gold standard diagnostic method for hypertension, but has some shortcomings in clinical practice while clinical settings often lack sufficient devices to accommodate all patients with suspected hypertension. Home blood pressure monitoring (HBPM) and office blood pressure monitoring (OBPM) also have shortcomings, such as the white coat effect or a lack of accuracy. This study aims to study the validity of a new method of diagnosing hypertension consisting of monitoring blood pressure (BP) for 1 hour and comparing it with OBPM and HBPM and examining the sensitivity and specificity of this method compared with 24-hour ABPM. The patient experience will be examined in each method. Methods and analysis A minimum sample of 214 patients requiring a diagnostic test for hypertension from three urban primary healthcare centres will be included. Participants will undergo 24-hour ABPM, 1-hour BP measurement (1-BPM), OBPM for three ...
AIMS/HYPOTHESIS: The relationship between BP and microalbuminuria in young people with type 1 diabetes is not completely clear. As microalbuminuria is preceded by a gradual rise in albumin excretion within the normal range, we hypothesised that ambulatory BP (ABP) may be closely related to albumin excretion and progression to microalbuminuria. METHODS: ABP monitoring (ABPM) was performed in 509 young people with type 1 diabetes (age median [range]: 15.7 [10.7-22.6] years) followed with annual assessments of three early morning urinary albumin:creatinine ratios (ACRs) and HbA(1c). Systolic BP (SBP) and diastolic BP (DBP) and the nocturnal fall in BP were analysed in relation to ACR. RESULTS: All ABPM variables were significantly related to baseline log(10) ACR (p | 0.001). After the ABPM evaluation, 287 patients were followed for a median of 2.2 (1.0-5.5) years. ABP at baseline was independently related to mean ACR during follow-up. Nineteen initially normoalbuminuric patients developed microalbuminuria
The usefulness of the community pharmacy blood pressure (CPBP) method in the diagnosis or treatment of hypertension has not been adequately addressed in controlled studies. The authors aim was to assess the agreement between awake ambulatory blood pressure (ABP), home blood pressure (HBP), and CPBP in treated hypertensive patients. This was a cross-sectional study carried out in 169 patients in which blood pressure (BP) was measured at the pharmacy (4 visits), at home (4days), and by 24-hour ABP monitoring. Lin correlation-concordance coefficient (CCC) and Bland-Altman plots were used to evaluate quantitative agreement. The qualitative agreement to establish the degree of BP control was evaluated using κ coefficient. The agreement was acceptable between HBP and CPBP (CCC=0.80 for systolic BP [SBP] and 0.80 for diastolic BP [DBP]; κ=0.62) and moderate between awake ABP and CPBP (CCC=0.74/0.67, respectively; κ=0.56). The Bland-Altman plots also showed lowest mean differences (0.5/0.3 for SBP ...
Results: Among participants not taking antihypertensive medication, the regression-derived thresholds for daytime, 24-hour, and nighttime SBP/DBP corresponding to clinic SBP/DBP of 140/90 mm Hg were 134/85 mm Hg, 130/81 mm Hg, and 123/73 mm Hg, respectively. The outcome-derived thresholds for daytime, 24-hour, and nighttime SBP corresponding to a clinic SBP ≥140 mm Hg were 138 mm Hg, 134 mm Hg, and 129 mm Hg, respectively. Among participants taking antihypertensive medication, the regression-derived thresholds for daytime, 24-hour, and nighttime SBP/DBP corresponding to clinic SBP/DBP of 140/90 mm Hg were 135/85 mm Hg, 133/82 mm Hg, and 128/76 mm Hg, respectively. The corresponding outcome-derived thresholds for daytime, 24-hour, and nighttime SBP were 140 mm Hg, 137 mm Hg, and 133 mm Hg, respectively, among those taking antihypertensive medication. ...

Conclusion The night blood pressure fall > 10% is connected with more advanced loss in the visual field and greater degeneration of optic nerve fibers which may result from decrease perfusion in ophthalmic and central retinal artery. The risk factors for progression of glaucoma include low night-pressure perfusion, minimal diastolic blood pressure below 45 mm Hg and reduce ocular blood flow. The above presented correlations are shown to avoid excessive drops of blood pressure in patients with glaucoma and arterial hypertension and indicate the necessity of further research on determining the target value of blood pressure in these patients. The results indicate the necessity for this group of patients to perform the ambulatory blood pressure monitoring study and quantify the pressure drop in the night ...
Tom Harrison: Disc Pump has a number of unique features that, taken together, offer a substantial improvement for ambulatory blood pressure systems. First, unlike a conventional pump there is no pulsation in the output. This allows measurements to be made whilst the pump is running - and therefore, whilst the cuff is inflating. In turn, that means that the measurement can be completed as soon as the systolic condition is detected, i.e. the cuff neednt be inflated any higher than necessary, minimizing the compression forces applied to the patient and therefore improving comfort.. Once the measurement has concluded, the cuff pressure can be rapidly vented with a valve. In principle this can be done much more quickly than the time taken to inflate the cuff with the conventional measure on deflation approach. Therefore, the measurement duration can be minimized too.. Second, Disc pump is small and lightweight - it weighs around 5 g (1/4 oz) and is roughly coin-sized. Being this compact allows the ...

Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (ABPM) is a completely painless advanced technique that more accurately measures the patients blood pressure than traditional methods. Some patients experience temporary increased blood pressure levels when they visit the doctor. Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring avoids this problem. The patient performs his or her routine activities over a 24-hour period. The National Institute for Health & Care Excellence (NICE) suggests that patients with blood pressure readings of 140/90 mm Hg or higher receive ambulatory blood pressure monitoring. The process can be used to confirm the patients hypertension. For patients with poorly-controlled hypertension and/or suspected resistance to blood pressure management medications, ABPM is a diagnostic tool. Patients who develop pregnancy-related hypertension or those considered at high-risk for complications related to hypertension benefit from ABPM. Diabetic patients or individuals with certain cerebrovascular disease, ...
White coat hypertension, more commonly known as white coat syndrome, is a phenomenon in which patients exhibit a blood pressure level above the normal range, in a clinical setting, though they dont exhibit it in other settings. It is believed that the phenomenon is due to anxiety that those afflicted experience during a clinic visit. The patients daytime ambulatory blood pressure is used as a reference as it takes into account ordinary levels of daily stress. Many problems have been incurred in the diagnosis and treatment of white coat hypertension. The term masked hypertension can be used to describe the contrasting phenomenon, where a patients blood pressure is above the normal range during daily living, although it isnt above the normal range when the patient is in a clinic setting. In studies, white coat hypertension can be defined as the presence of a defined hypertensive average blood pressure in a clinic setting, although it isnt present when the patient is at home. Diagnosis is ...
An ambulatory blood pressure monitor is a small device that you wear throughout the day, usually for 24 or 48 hours. The device takes your blood pressure automatically while you do your normal daily activities.. The device periodically inflates and takes blood pressure measurements, which are recorded for later printout and analysis. The devices are usually loaned by a clinic, hospital, or pharmacy.. Your doctor might ask you to use one of these monitors after measuring your blood pressure in the doctors office, to make sure that you actually have high blood pressure. This is because your blood pressure can change during the day. And sometimes blood pressure is higher only because you are seeing a doctor. This is called white-coat hypertension. To diagnose high blood pressure, your doctor needs to know if your blood pressure stays high throughout the day. If you are required to use an ambulatory blood pressure monitor, keep in mind that it is important for a health professional to properly size ...

Epicardial fat tissue is known to have an unique endocrine function which affect the cardiac autonomic system. Heart rate recovery (HRR) is a simple non-invasive measurement that assesses autonomic nervous system dysfunction. We aimed to investigate the association among epicardial fat thickness (EFT), HRR and circadian blood pressure (BP) variation in patients with hypertension. A total of 358 consecutive patients who underwent both 24-hour ambulatory BP monitoring (ABPM) and a treadmill test were enrolled. Echocardiographic EFT and HRR, defined as peak heart rate minus heart rate after a 1-min recovery time, were measured. Patients were classified according to the ABPM; 147 patients with hypertension with a dipping pattern at night (dippers), 140 patients with hypertension with a non-dipping pattern at night (non-dippers) and 71 normotensive controls. EFT was significantly higher in hypertensive patients, especially in the non-dipper group, compared to the controls (non-dippers, 7.5 ± 2.9 mm; dippers

Introduction 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure (BP) monitoring is a well-validated tool that can reveal the patients nocturnal dipping pattern. However, to the best of our knowledge, the role of home BP monitoring in identifying nocturnal dipping has not been studied. Methods We evaluated the nocturnal BP of 30 treatment-naive subjects using a home BP monitoring device. BP measurements were taken once during the daytime and once at night (three hours after sleep) by a blinded observer. Readings were correlated with left ventricular mass index. Results Night BP measurements were significantly lower in subjects without left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) as compared to those with LVH, while the daytime readings were not significantly different between the two. The mean dips in nocturnal systolic and diastolic BP were 1.92% ± 6.89% and −0.55% ± 14.31%, respectively, in subjects with LVH. The corresponding values were 12.96% ± 6.16% and 11.36% ± 11.90% in those without LVH. The correlation ...

Objectives The purpose of the study is to evaluate 24h blood pressure values by automatic ambulatory monitoring (ABPM) in a group of hypertensive patients already on therapy and to find correlations between different blood pressure parameters and the presence of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). Design and method: 39 patients diagnosed with essential hypertension grades 1-3 were enrolled in the study; echocardiography was done and left ventricular mass and mass index were calculated. Based on 24 h ABPM we calculated BP variability estimated as standard deviation (SD) and average real variability (ARV), pulse pressure, dipper profile and morning BP surge. We compared these parameters in pts with and without LVH and calculated correlations with LV mass. Results: Nocturnal diastolic BP variability estimated as SD had significantly higher values in pts with LVH (13,2 vs 9,9 mmHg, p=0,015), ARV/24 hour and ARV during nighttime had higher values in pts with LVH vs those with normal LV mass (12,25 vs 9,7

High blood pressure (BP) is a highly prevalent modifiable cause of cardiovascular disease, stroke, and death. Accurate BP measurement is critical, given that a 5-mmHg measurement error may lead to incorrect hypertension status classification in 84 million individuals worldwide. This position statement summarizes procedures for optimizing observer performance in clinic BP measurement, with special attention given to low-tomiddle- income settings, where resource limitations, heavy workloads, time constraints, and lack of electrical power make measurement more challenging. Many measurement errors can be minimized by appropriate patient preparation and standardized techniques. Validated semi-automated/automated upper arm cuff devices should be used instead of auscultation to simplify measurement and prevent observer error. Task sharing, creating a dedicated measurement workstation, and using semi-automated or solar-charged devices may help. Ensuring observer training, and periodic re-training, is critical.
Eguchi et al. (1), in their response to our study (2), point out that microvascular damage associated with white-coat hypertension may be the cause of increased blood pressure responses to daily stressors. This is a very interesting and original interpretation; however, the direction of the cause-and-effect relation between microvascular disease and blood pressure response to exercise can only be confirmed by prospective cohort studies.. We share the idea of Eguchi et al. that continuously high levels of blood pressure are more important for the development of diabetes complications than transient rises. In a previous study of our group, Leitão et al. (3) studied 270 type 2 diabetic patients with ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) and verified that the correlations between urinary albumin excretion rate and echocardiography structural alterations with 24-h systolic blood pressure means were more consistent and of greater magnitude than with night/day blood pressure ratios. Reinforcing ...
