The new American Heart Association (AHA) blood pressure guidelines are expected to raise the prevalence of high blood pressure to ~46% in the United States. One recommendation for lowering blood pressure is aerobic exercise, which produces a period of lowered blood pressure (post-exercise hypotension; PEH) that lasts up to 24 hours. It is believed that PEH may be responsible for the observations of lowered blood pressure following initiation of exercise. However, most Americans eat too much salt, which expands plasma volume and may prevent PEH, rending aerobic exercise ineffective in improving blood pressure status.
Americans eat more salt than is recommended by the American Heart Association. This is important because consuming a high-salt diet is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular events, like strokes and heart attacks. In fact, consuming one high-salt meal temporarily reduces blood vessel function and it is not uncommon for Americans to consume high-salt meals. Therefore, our laboratory is interested in determining if a single high-salt meal affects 1) brain blood vessel function at rest and 2) blood pressure responses during exercise.
24 hour ambulatory blood pressure (ABP) monitoring should be the first choice for diagnosis and treatment of hypertension according to European Societyof Hypertension (ESH) and the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) guideline on ambulatory blood pressure monitoring. Finally, we should promote the clinical application of 24 hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring to greatly improve the management level of hypertension in China and effectively reduce the risk caused by hypertension in the population. Information of hypertensive patients with ambulatory blood pressure monitoring was prospectively registered nationwide,and then to investigate whether there was difference in cardiovascular prognosis according to the control of ABP.
The European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) guidelines have not made any specific recommendations regarding the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet, a dietary pattern that emphasizes fruits and vegetables, low-fat or non-fat dairy, limiting saturated fat intake and usually also recommends limiting sodium intake. To update the recommendations, the Diabetes and Nutrition Study Group (DNSG) of the EASD commissioned an umbrella review of systematic reviews and meta-analyses using the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development, and Evaluation (GRADE) approach to summarize the available evidence from recent systematic reviews and meta-analyses of prospective cohort studies and randomized controlled trials of the relationship between the DASH dietary pattern and cardiometabolic risk.
The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of a 12-week jump rope exercise program on blood pressure, arterial stiffness, vasodilating and vasoconstricting factors, inflammatory markers, and body composition in prehypertensive adolescent girls. Forty prehypertensive adolescent girls participated in this study. The girls were randomly divided into the jump rope exercise intervention group (EX, n=20) and control group (CON, n=20). The EX group performed a jump rope training program at 40-70% of their heart rate reserve (HRR) 5 days/week for 12 weeks (sessions 50 minutes in duration). The CON group did not participate in any structured or unstructured exercise protocol. Blood pressure, arterial stiffness, plasma nitrate/nitrite levels, endothelin-1, C-reactive protein, and body composition were measured before and after the 12-weeks study.
Intraoperative hypotension occurs often and is associated with adverse patient outcomes such as stroke, myocardial infarction and renal injury. The aim of this study was to test the accuracy of a physiology-based machine-learning algorithm using continuous non-invasive measurement of the blood pressure waveform with the Nexfin® finger cuff during surgery.
This study was a randomized controlled trial study. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of soursop fruit supplementation on blood pressure (BP), serum uric acid (SUA), and kidney function. The definition of prehypertension and hypertension was accepted as delivered in The Seventh Report of the Joint National Committee (JNC 7) as the systolic BP was 120 - 139 mmHg and diastolic BP was 80 - 89 mmHg for prehypertension, while systolic BP ≥ 140 mmHg or diastolic BP ≥ 90 mmHg for hypertension. Based on the study by Sja'bani (2014), the cut-off point of (SUA) was divided into 3 categories, which are normal (< 5 mg/dL), high-normal (5 - <7 mg/dL), and high (≥ 7 mg/dL). A number of 143 people with essential prehypertension and high normal uric acid level were assigned as subject in this study. Subjects were randomly assigned into two groups which are treatment and control group. For a 3 months period, the treatment group was given 2x100 g soursop fruit juice per day and the control group was left without treatment. Blood pressure was measured by medical team using Omron HEM-907 (digital automatic blood pressure monitoring) every 2 weeks (3 times readings for each) in each subject's home. Subjects were examined in sitting position. Evaluation of laboratory examination was taken at week 0, 7 and 13.
This pilot study aims to recruit 30 adults with abdominal obesity, without major chronic disease, and test whether clinical dietary advice that is solely focused on the timing of eating (time restricted eating), has an effect on cardiometabolic health compared to standard dietary advice for cardiometabolic health, which is focused on content. The goal of this pilot study is to develop and hone dietary counseling approaches for time restricted eating for RD's in a clinical practice paradigm, and collect data on testing this intervention compared to standard dietary counseling approaches for cardiometabolic health.
