Blood pressure-related electrocardiographic findings in healthy young individuals.

Blood pressure-related electrocardiographic findings in healthy young individuals. Blood Press. 2019 Nov 12;:1-10 Authors: Hassing GJ, van der Wall HEC, van Westen GJP, Kemme MJB, Adiyaman A, Elvan A, Burggraaf J, Gal P Abstract Purpose: Elevated blood pressure induces electrocardiographic changes and is associated with an increase in cardiovascular disease later in life compared to normal blood pressure levels. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the association between normal to high normal blood pressure values (90-139/50-89 mmHg) and electrocardiographic parameters related to cardiac changes in hypertension in healthy young adults.Methods: Data from 1449 volunteers aged 18-30 years collected at our centre were analyzed. Only subjects considered healthy by a physician after review of collected data with systolic blood pressure values between 90 and 139 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure values between 50 and 89 mmHg were included. Subjects were divided into groups with 10 mmHg systolic blood pressure increment between groups for analysis of electrocardiographic differences. Backward multivariate regression analysis with systolic and diastolic blood pressure as a continuous variable was performed.Results: The mean age was 22.7 ± 3.0 years, 73.7% were male. P-wave area, ventricular activation time, QRS-duration, Sokolow-Lyon voltages, Cornell Product, J-point-T-peak duration corrected fo...

A 66-year-old lady with hypertension and hypercholesterolaemia presented with two episodes of ‘fleeting’ chest discomfort and shortness of breath on exertion. 12-lead electrocardiogram showed sinus rhythm. An outpatient CT coronary angiography (CTCA) showed right coronary artery non-calcific plaque in the distal AV groove, with central low attenuation (

Conclusion: Intracranial artery calcification is common in patients with ischemic cerebrovascular disease and the intracranial carotid artery is most frequently affected. Intracranial arterial calcifications might be associated with imaging markers of SVD and are highly correlated with WMHs, lacunes, and CMBs. Quantification of calcification on CT provides additional information on the pathophysiology of SVD. Intracranial arterial calcification could act as a potential marker of SVD. Introduction Atherosclerosis is a systemic vascular process that is considered a major cause of cerebrovascular and cardiovascular di...

This study aimed to compare the effect of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) with moderate-intensity continuous training (MCT) on endothelial function, oxidative stress and clinical fitness in patients with type 1 diabetes. Thirty-six type 1 diabetic patients (mean age 23.5 ± 6 years) were randomized into 3 groups: HIIT, MCT, and a non-exercising group (CON). Exercise was performed in a stationary cycle ergometers during 40 min, 3 times/week, for 8 weeks at 50–85% maximal heart rate (HRmax) in HIIT and 50% HRmax in MCT. Endothelial function was measured by flow-mediated dilation (FMD) [endothelium-depende...

Conclusions: Embolism associated with asymptomatic carotid stenosis shows circadian variation with highest rates 4–6 h before midday. This corresponds with peak circadian incidence of stroke and other vascular complications. These and ASED Study results show that monitoring frequency, duration, and time of day are important in ES detection. Introduction Transcranial Doppler (TCD) detected microembolism in the ipsilateral middle cerebral artery (MCA) may help stratify the risk of stroke and other arterial disease complications in persons with advanced (≥60%) asymptomatic carotid stenosis. If so, this techniqu...

Conclusion: Incident IVCD, but not BBB, is significantly reduced by losartan-based treatment. Further study is warranted to assess the potential differential impact of this therapy on QRS prolongation vs. development of more discrete conduction system block.

We examined the relationship between LDL-C and haemodynamic variables in normotensive and never-treated hypertensive subjects. METHODS: We recruited 615 volunteers (19-72 years) without lipid-lowering and BP-lowering medication. Supine haemodynamics were recorded using continuous radial pulse wave analysis, whole-body impedance cardiography, and single channel electrocardiogram. The haemodynamic relations of LDL-C were examined using linear regression analyses with age, sex, body mass index (BMI) (or height and weight as appropriate), smoking status, alcohol use, and plasma C-reactive protein, sodium, uric acid, high d...

CONCLUSION: The PURE study is a large, ongoing, prospective epidemiological study that is investigating the "causes of the causes" of noncommunicable diseases in the world. In addition to revealing the health status of nations, the study also has the potential to affect health politics. PMID: 30391990 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Zhang J, Song Y, Ji Y, Song Y, Cai S, Yu Y, Liu S, Zhang W Abstract The correlation between coronary artery disease (CAD) and obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) was investigated to analyze its risk factors. A total of 84 patients with suspected CAD due to chest tightness and pain or nocturnal angina, were selected. They were admitted and received coronary angiography in The Affiliated Hospital of Medical College Qingdao University from March, 2016 to June, 2017. The vital signs were monitored, and the sleep monitoring was performed before and after coronary angiography. Before angiography, the fasting...
