Syndrome of Supine Hypertension with Orthostatic Hypotension: Pathophysiology and Clinical Approach.

This article is intended to provide guidance and clinical considerations for physicians managing patients suffering from supine hypertension with orthostatic hypotension, referred to as "SH-OH". We review the normal physiologic response to orthostasis, focusing on the appropriate changes to autonomic output in this state. Autonomic failure is discussed with a generalized overview of the disease and examination of specific syndromes that help shed light on the pathophysiology of SH-OH. The goal of this review is to provide a better framework for clinical evaluation of these patients, review treatment options, and ultimately work toward achieving a better quality of life for patients afflicted with this disease.

es MA Abstract The sympathetic nervous system (SNS) regulates body functions in normal and pathological conditions and is characterized by the presence of a neuroplastic phenomenon, termed ganglionic long-term potentiation (gLTP). In hypertension, either in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) or in humans, sympathetic hyperfunction, such as elevated SNS outflow and changes in synaptic plasticity have been described. Because enhanced SNS outflow is detected in the hypertensive stage and, more importantly, in the prehypertensive phase of SHR, here we explored whether synaptic plasticity, particularly gLTP, was mod...

s N Abstract Hypertension is the first modifiable vascular risk factor accounting for 10.4 million deaths worldwide; it is strongly and independently associated with the risk of stroke and is related to worse prognosis. In addition, hypertension seems to be a key player in the implementation of vascular cognitive impairment. Long-term hypertension, complicated or not by the occurrence of ischemic stroke, is often reviewed on its vascular side, and parenchymal consequences are put aside. Here, we sought to review the impact of isolated hypertension or hypertension associated to stroke on brain atrophy, neuron conne...

HIGH blood pressure is prevalent in the UK, with more than one in four people living with the condition, yet many people will not realise it. The best way to keep your blood pressure in check is to make healthy dietary decisions, and in addition to eating certain foods, a number of drinks have been associated with lowering blood pressure.

Effect of Body Weight Change on Blood Pressure in a Japanese General Population with a Body Mass Index ≥ 22 kg/m2. Int Heart J. 2019 Nov 15;: Authors: Itoh H, Kaneko H, Kiriyama H, Nakanishi K, Mizuno Y, Daimon M, Morita H, Yamamichi N, Komuro I Abstract The association between changes in body weight and blood pressure (BP) in overweight people in the general population still remains unclear. We sought to clarify the effect of body weight change on BP using a community-based cohort. We studied 1,170 overweight subjects with a body mass index (BMI) ≥ 22 kg/m2 who underwent health check-ups. Among ...

In this study, we examined the role of SMP30 in pulmonary vasculature using SMP30-deficient mice.We used female SMP30-deficient mice and wild-type littermate (WT) mice at the age of 12 to 18 weeks. The WT and SMP30-deficient mice were exposed to normoxia or hypoxia (10% oxygen for 4 weeks). In normoxia, the right ventricular systolic pressure (RVSP) was not different between the WT and SMP30-deficient mice, but in hypoxia, the RVSP was significantly higher in the SMP30-deficient mice compared to the WT mice (P

(Natural News) Eating lots of salty food can contribute to the development of hypertension or high blood pressure, which is a key risk factor for many heart-related diseases. Protect yourself from hypertension by adding nitrate-rich beetroots to your diet. A study published in the journal Hypertension found that small amounts of beetroot and other foods...

After a stroke, the main goal is to get back home and be as independent as possible. To achieve that goal, most stroke rehabilitation centers focus on helping people to regain lost function, such as the inability to use a hand, to speak, to swallow, or to walk. A great deal of effort is put into functional recovery so that the patient can go home safely and adequately perform activities of daily living (ADLs). There is little effort put into aerobic exercise and conditioning in most stroke rehabilitation programs. A recent systematic review and meta-analysis published in the Journal of the American Heart Association (JAHA)...
