Relationship Between Elevated Automatic Blood Pressure Readings and Manual Blood Pressure Readings in Adult Patients With Normal and High Body Mass Index.

Relationship Between Elevated Automatic Blood Pressure Readings and Manual Blood Pressure Readings in Adult Patients With Normal and High Body Mass Index. J Am Osteopath Assoc. 2019 Jun 01;119(6):364-370 Authors: Hussain MM, Solomon IE, Pazdernik V, Bandarpalle S, Navarro I, Shneyder T, LeBeau L Abstract Context: Discrepancies in ambulatory blood mercury sphygmomanometers pressure readings exist between automated blood pressure machines and manual mercury sphygmomanometers. For patients with elevated blood pressure, consistent blood pressure readings between these methods are important across all body mass index (BMI) levels. Objective: To determine the relationship between automated and manual blood pressure readings and the effect of BMI in patients with an elevated automated blood pressure reading. Methods: Automated and manual blood pressure readings (using the same arm) were collected from July 2014 to December 2016 across community-oriented primary care clinics in New York City for a retrospective medical record review. Automated systolic blood pressure (SBP) readings greater than 140 mm Hg or diastolic blood pressure (DBP) readings greater than 90 mm Hg were qualifying criteria for a manual blood pressure assessment. The difference in automated blood pressure readings relative to a manual blood pressure reading was assessed overall and for any relationship with BMI using linear regression and analysis of variance. Results: Data from 281...

ConclusionWe show small, but significant global and INSR promoter DNA methylation differences in GSAT and ASAT of normal-weight and obese black and white South African women. DNA methylation in ASAT was associated with centralization of body fat in white women, whereas in black women DNA methylation in GSAT was associated with insulin resistance and systemic inflammation. Our findings suggest that GSAT rather than ASAT may be a determinant of metabolic risk in black women and provide novel evidence that altered DNA methylation within adipose depots may contribute to ethnic differences in body fat distribution and cardiometabolic risk.
