The Best Blood Pressure Medication
The most popular medication to treat high blood pressure is not as effective as this drug.
Conclusion It is suggested that waist circumference is the main factor for control over the time in strategies focused on BP management in adult population.
This study aimed to assess the dynamic thiol/disulphide balance in individuals with white-coat hypertension (WCH). Methods This cross-sectional study included a total of 117 individuals who presented to our outpatient cardiology clinic. Seventy patients were diagnosed with WCH. All blood samples were obtained from the patients after a minimum of 8 h of fasting, centrifuged immediately, stored in Eppendorf tubes, and protected at −80°C. Results The two groups were well-balanced in terms of age, gender, and BMI. Native thiol and total thiol levels were lower in the WCH group than in normotensiv...
Conclusion Our results indicate that people with declining mobility are significantly more likely to develop hypertension. Hence, improving mobility could be protective against hypertension for elderly individuals.
Conclusion Unmet need of hypertension care is substantially high, thus underpinning the need for intervention with a multifaceted approach
Conclusions In conclusion, SII is a simple, useful new inflammatory parameter for predicting stroke from hypertension. We found that the high SII levels increase the risk of stroke in hypertensive patients.
Conclusions In this study, it has been shown that it is possible to diagnose hypertension at an earlier period of transplantation using ABPM in pediatric liver transplant patients. ABPM is needed to detect masked hypertension that may develop following liver transplantation.
Objective The aim of this study was to evaluate the left ventricular (LV) function by conventional two-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography (2D STE) to detect subclinical LV systolic dysfunction in patients with dipper and nondipper hypertension. Methods One hundred consecutive patients with hypertension were included in our study. Clinical evaluation, baseline laboratory investigations, 24 ambulatory blood pressure monitoring 2D echocardiographic examination and 2D STE were performed for all patients. Patients were classified as dippers and nondippers according to their nighttime MAP (mean arterial blo...
Conclusions BMI predicts arm circumference with high sensitivity and specificity and can be an accurate surrogate variable for arm circumference. These findings are useful for participant screening for hypertension trials. Providers can use this information to counsel patients on appropriate cuff size for BP self-monitoring.
Objective A method for measuring intracranial pressure (ICP) noninvasively has long been sought after in neurology and neurosurgery. Treatment failure in individuals presenting with unspecific symptoms such as headache, gait disturbance, or visual impairment occurring in response to increased ICP can lead to irreversible brain injury, progressive disability, and death. Guidelines for diagnostic ICP measurement recommend intracranial placement of pressure tip catheters or lumbar puncture (LP) despite their invasiveness and possible complications. As ICP fluctuations are closely associated with changes in brain stiffness...
This study used data from 2 cross-sectional studies conducted in the neurology departments of 3 hospitals in Guangzhou, China. In total, 110 hypertensive stroke patients were recruited in stage I (2008-2009), and 119 hypertensive stroke patients were recruited in stage II (2018-2019). Patients' stroke knowledge was measured by the Stroke Knowledge Questionnaire. Patients' prestroke health behavior was measured by the Health Behavior Scale for Stroke Patients. RESULTS: The total score of prestroke health behaviors significantly increased over the decade (P
