BACKGROUND: Blood pressure variability (BPV) in acute ischemic stroke (AIS) may be of prognostic significance. However, methodological heterogeneity of studies may contribute to inconsistent findings, and study findings are therefore not readily comparable. We investigated study methodologies which have assessed the long-term outcomes (≥7 days) of BPV post-AIS. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The literature search was conducted in OVID Medline, Embase, The Cochrane Library, and Web of Science following a predefined search strategy...

OBJECTIVES: Although applanation tonometry is the most widely used method for evaluating arterial stiffness, oscillometric ambulatory blood pressure monitoring devices using specific algorithms for pulse wave analyses have been validated more recently. Currently, it is not clear how to interpret 24-h mean values of arterial stiffness parameters. The objective of this study was to compare 24-h mean values of arterial stiffness parameters obtained using 24-h ambulatory blood pressure monitoring device (Mobil-O-Graph) against a validated single-measure tonometric system (SphygmoCor)...

BACKGROUND: Current blood pressure (BP) measurement guidelines recommend certain patient requirements, especially keeping still for 5 min. Some patients cannot comply. My colleagues and I have reported accurate performance of the Welch Allyn SureBP algorithm for BP estimates during voluntary patient motion. No validation studies for involuntary patient movement (tremor) BP readings have been reported. This paper reports the validation of the Welch Allyn Home BP monitor, the 1700 Series, which contains that same SureBP algorithm, and the results of tremor testing as well...

The aim of our study is to determine whether there is a clinically important difference between the femoral and the radial site of blood pressure measurements, and to identify whether the vasoactive infusion dose influences the femoral-to-radial mean arterial blood pressure (MAP) gradient. We included 71 patients with sepsis and septic shock, with no comorbidities that may influence the hemodynamic parameters. Simultaneous measurements were registered at the femoral and radial arteries. The agreement between the two sites of recording was tested in the no-norepinephrine, low-norepinephrine, and high-norepinephrine groups, as well as for the whole group...

OBJECTIVE: Increased blood pressure (BP) variability and inflammation are included among the factors recognized as potential predictors of cardiovascular events in type 2 diabetes and hypertension. This study aimed to evaluate whether C-reactive protein (CRP) is associated with increased BP variability in diabetic-hypertensive patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We carried out a cross-sectional study with 285 diabetic-hypertensive patients, evaluating laboratory characteristics and 24-h ambulatory BP monitoring...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the impact of the new US hypertension criteria [systolic blood pressure/diastolic blood pressure (SBP/DBP ≥130/80 mmHg)] on hypertension prevalence and the constituent ratio of three hypertension phenotypes. PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS: This study included 1185 adult participants, who received blood pressure (BP) measurements for 3 days over a 7-day period. At each visit, the BP was measured three times and the average was used as the final value...

PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS: Adults were recruited to fulfill the ESH-IP requirements. The same-arm sequential BP measurement method was used. RESULTS: A total of 38 participants were recruited and 33 were included in the analysis...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare invasive and noninvasive monitoring of blood pressure (BP) in patients on inotropes. SETTINGS AND DESIGN: This study was carried out in the ICU of a tertiary care centre. The design was comparative analytical. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Thirty-six adult patients receiving inotropes with invasive arterial BP monitoring were studied. Systolic and diastolic BPs were recorded simultaneously using invasive (radial arterial cannula) and noninvasive (Philips Intellivue MP-60 oscillometric monitor attached to the opposite arm) methods every 30 min...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to validate the TM-2441 ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) device using the ISO 81060-2:2013 standard. PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS: Participants were healthy individuals aged more than 12 years who were recruited from among the outpatients and volunteers of Jichi Medical University (Tochigi, Japan). The same-arm sequence protocol (clinical validation) and the opposite-limb simultaneous method (ambulatory validation) from the ISO 81060-2:2013 standard were used...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to validate the accuracy of beat-to-beat measurements with those taken with an aneroid sphygmomanometer by auscultatory method. A secondary aim was to explore differences between auscultatory and beat-to-beat blood pressure (BP) with daytime ambulatory BP measurements. PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS: A total of 46 participants, comprising 21 males, aged 47±13 years, height 171±8.5 cm and weight 82±16.8 kg attended the Exercise Physiology Laboratory at the University of New England (Armidale, New South Wales, Australia)...

BACKGROUND: Current blood pressure (BP) measurement guidelines specify patient requirements, including being still. Some populations of patients cannot comply. A new International Organization for Standards is being developed to test devices that claim tolerance to transport-induced motion artifacts. This study proposes the first protocol to assess BP device accuracy in the presence of patient-induced motion. PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS: Forty healthy volunteers (23 males) participated...

BACKGROUND: Fixed-ratio and slope-based algorithms are used to derive oscillometric blood pressure (BP). However, a paucity of published data exists assessing the accuracy of these methods. Our objective was to determine the accuracy of fixed-ratio and slope-based algorithms in healthy adults and in adults with cardiovascular risk factors. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Overall, 85 healthy adults (age≥18 years) and 85 adults with cardiovascular risk factors were studied...

OBJECTIVE: The conventional nocturnal blood pressure monitoring (NBPM) systems can disturb sleep and lead to false measurements. The present study compared the validity and acceptability of a newly developed wrist-cuff system with that of the conventional upper arm-cuff system for NBPM. PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS: Home blood pressure (BP) and pulse rate (PR) were measured in hypertensive patients (n=57) every 30 min at night using a wrist-cuff system and at 2 am (fixed time) and 4 h after going to bed (flexible time) using an upper arm-cuff system...

The renewed 2018 syncope guidelines published by the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) reiterate that the initial evaluation of syncope should include history taking, physical examination, an electrocardiogram, and orthostatic blood pressure measurements (OBPM). However, the importance of evaluating for orthostatic hypotension (OH) often remains underappreciated in clinical practice. In this study, we examine the initial evaluation of syncope on an ED. We retrospectively reviewed 2 years of consecutive medical records of patients presenting with a syncope to the ED of a university hospital...

BACKGROUND: Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) provides a more precise assessment of blood pressure (BP) status than clinic BP and is currently recommended in the evaluation of elevated BP in children and adolescents. Yet, ABPM can be uncomfortable for patients and cumbersome to perform. OBJECTIVE: Evaluation of the tolerability to ABPM in 232 adolescent participants (median age: 15.7 years, 64% white, 16% Hispanic, 53% male) in the Study of Hypertension In Pediatrics Adult Hypertension Onset in Youth and its potential effects on ABPM results...

INTRODUCTION: Pulse wave analysis (PWA) over the carotid artery is one of the available methodological options to obtain central arterial pressures and other important hemodynamic parameters. However, limited data exist relating the PWA estimates of one carotid artery over the contralateral one as the majority of the available data rely on measures over the right carotid artery. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the agreement of the PWA estimates between the right carotid artery and the left carotid artery...

OBJECTIVE: The Welch Allyn Pro BP 2000, an automated sphygmomanometer, was subjected to ANSI/AAMI/ISO testing. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The protocol used was the same-arm sequential procedure described in the ANSI/AAMI/ISO 2013 Standard. Eight-eight (53 adults and 35 children aged 3-12 years old) patients completed testing successfully. Arm circumferences ranged from 15 to 49.5 cm. Seven different cuff sizes were used, including two long cuffs. RESULTS: All requirements for age, sex, blood pressure (BP), and cuff sizes were fulfilled...
