The aim of this study was to evaluate the therapeutic effect of sodium intake reduction by education in patients with resistant hypertension. The study was designed to maximize the compliance to antihypertensive agents and use optimal doses of antihypertensive agents including diuretics for 2 months before randomization. Patients will be assigned randomly to receiving (1) education of sodium intake reduction and exercise, or (2) education of exercise alone. Education of sodium intake reduction will be blinded to patients, and education of exercise will be provided to both group to blind the subjects. Daytime ambulatory blood pressure is adopted for diagnosis of resistant hypertension to avoid white-coat effect.
This study evaluates a health theory based mobile health behavioral intervention to reduce blood pressure (BP) among hypertensive patients evaluated in a community Emergency Department (ED) setting.
The aim of the trial is to study the long-term safety of macitentan and to provide continued treatment with macitentan to patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) who were previously treated with macitentan in clinical studies.
Cross-sectional survey of all adults residing in two defined geographical regions in urban Lilongwe and rural Karonga District. Participants were interviewed, had anthropometric measures taken, and had fasting blood specimens taken.
TJO-002 or Acitve Control was administered on primary open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension patients for 12 weeks. This clinical trial study has hypothesize TJO-002 administration groups are not inferior to Active control administration groups.
A 3-arm randomized pilot trial aimed at comparing the effectiveness of different remote approaches to improving blood pressure (BP) control.
This study aims to investigate whether channeling purposefully structured resources to patients at high risk of developing diabetic complications to interdisciplinary team clinic consultations, interspersed with closer remote follow-up and aided by simple technology will be more effective than usual care in controlling diabetes mellitus, controlling multiple cardiovascular risk factors and reducing clinical event rates.
Laboratory monitoring of patients included serial measurement of complete blood cell count, liver function tests, coagulation profile, and renal function tests. ICU management during conduction of the research study included the following: Control of convulsions using magensium sulphate. Control of blood pressure Diastolic blood pressure above 110 mmHg, nifedipine was administered.A plasma volume expansion with saline was used in all women to maintain sufficient intravascular volume. Delivery was performed immediately after hemodynamic stabilization and clinical control of general condition .
Osmotherapy consists in the therapeutic use of osmotically active substances with the aim of reducing the volume and therefore the intracranial pressure. It therefore represents an essential component in the clinical management of cerebral edema and intracranial hypertension, whether they are a consequence of head trauma, ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke, and neoplasm or neurosurgical procedures. The current study aims at evaluating in vivo the effects on haemostasis parameters of hypertonic saline solutions at different concentration, as compared to mannitol, in patients with neuroradiological signs (CT / MRI) of cerebral edema / non-traumatic intracranial hypertension.
Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG) is an endoscopic minimally invasive weight loss procedure where a commercially available, FDA approved, full-thickness endoscopic suturing device (Overstitch; Apollo Endosurgery, Austin, TX) is used to reduce the stomach volume by 80% through the creation of a restrictive endoscopic sleeve. This is accomplished by a series of endolumenally placed full-thickness sutures through the gastric wall, extending from the antrum to the gastroesophageal junction. Up to 200 participants at 8 locations in the United States will participate in this study. The ESG procedure has been performed clinically for 3 years in the United States. The investigators are completing this study to compare how effective the ESG is for achieving long-term weight loss when compared to lifestyle modification only, as well as to evaluate the long-term safety and durability of the procedure and its impact on quality of life. Results of this research may help support having this procedure covered by health insurance plans for future patients.
