NICE guideline: the diagnosis and management of hypertension
New targets for blood pressure control have sparked controversy not just because of the increase in the numbers of people defined as hypertensive but also because different interpretations of the same data seemed to have been reached in the UK, Europe and the USA. Here the author examines the data behind the guideline decisions to try to make sense of the differences.
Conclusions: Maternal health risks were associated with increased adult preventive visits, but 38% of dyads had no adult preventive visits in the year following birth. Most dyads had more opportunities for preventive care in pediatric settings than adult settings.

Authors: Tomiyama H, Shiina K Abstract The brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (brachial-ankle PWV), which is measured simply by wrapping pressure cuffs around the four extremities, is a simple marker to assess the stiffness of the medium- to large- sized arteries. The accuracy and reproducibility of its measurement have been confirmed to be acceptable. Risk factors for cardiovascular disease, especially advanced age and high blood pressure, are reported to be associated with an increase of the arterial stiffness. Furthermore, arterial stiffness might be involved in a vicious cycle with the development/progression o...
Many people with high blood pressure may have an unrecognized hormonal condition driving their numbers up, a new study suggests.
We aimed to validate Web-based questionnaires for the common pregnancy complications gestational diabetes, gestational hypertension, and preeclampsia.
AbstractPurpose of the ReviewIn our innate immune system, neutrophils are the first cells to sense signals of infection and to proceed to kill the invading pathogen. This is mediated by their production of neutrophil extracellular traps (NETS) to entrap pathogenic micro-organisms, preventing their amplification and dissemination. Pre-eclampsia (PE) is the leading cause of global maternal mortality, yet to date, there is no cure nor a gold-standard diagnostic strategy. The purpose of this review is to discover the role of neutrophils in PE as early identification markers. Additionally, this review aims to explore the role o...
