Pregnancy relates to arterial hypertension; it is an aggravating factor for pre-existing chronic arterial hypertension or a trigger for preeclampsia in normotensive women. The gestational hypertensive disease is managed conventionally with the pregnant woman's hospitalization and/or the use of antihypertensive medications. Nevertheless, this treatment may present some risks. The investigators seek to determine whether the intervention compared to the control can reduce the increase in blood pressure that pregnant women in the transition from the 2nd to the 3rd trimester.
The investigators have designed a group randomized, multi-level, sustainable stroke and cardiovascular disease (CVD) prevention trial - "Blood Pressure: Improving Control among Alaska Native People" (BP-ICAN) - that targets blood pressure control among Alaska Native and American Indian people diagnosed with hypertension. Washington State University will assist with design, provides general scientific and clinical consulting, and will help guide implementation and conduct statistical analyses. The purpose of the study is to see if monitoring blood pressure at home improves the management of hypertension. Participants will include adults who have a diagnosis of hypertension and have not achieved blood pressure control. This study will include both a control arm (treatment as usual) and an intervention arm. Primary Care Center (PCC) provider teams and associated panels of Alaska Native or American Indian (ANAI) adults will be randomized into the control or intervention arm. The investigators will recruit up to 10 ANAI adults per PCC provider for a total of 500 participants. Intervention participants will receive a home blood pressure monitor (HBPM), upload their home blood pressure values into a data mall, and be encouraged to communicate with providers and pharmacists about HBPM results using an online electronic health record application, telephone, or other existing clinical processes. HBPM measurements for each intervention arm participant will be provided to provider teams and integrated pharmacists. Control participants will receive care as usual. The investigators will collect data from study participants in both the intervention and control arms over a 12 month period. Participants will meet with investigators at time of consent (baseline), and 3, 6, and 12 months after baseline. At each visit, participants will have their blood pressure measured using 3 methods (aneroid sphygmomanometer, automated Omron upper arm cuff device, and automated Omron wrist cuff device), complete surveys, and have their height, weight, and arm circumference measured. Clinical and service utilization information will be electronically queried with participant consent. The investigators will examine whether participants in the intervention arm have better blood pressure control at the end of the 12 month period than participants in the control arm.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of co-administrated Rosuvastatin/Ezetimibe and Telmisartan in patients with primary hypercholesterolemia and essential hypertension.
Assessment of the possible difference in masked hypertension prevalence when it is evaluated by automated office blood pressure measurement (AOBPM) instead of office blood pressure measurement (OBPM) in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea.
Home blood pressure measurement has been reported to be associated with better clinic blood pressure and daytime blood pressure control. However, no study has evaluated the association between home blood pressure measurement and control of 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure in real world practice. The purpose of the present study is to investigate the effect of home blood pressure measurement on the control of ambulatory blood pressure in the real world. The detailed purposes of the present study are (1) to investigate the effects of home blood pressure measurement on the appropriate control of 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure in hypertensive patients treated with antihypertensive drug, (2) to evaluate the effect of home blood pressure measurement on the occurrence of cardiovascular events and target organ damage, (3) to investigate the status and appropriateness of home blood pressure measurement in the real world, and (4) to investigate factors of home blood pressure measurement methods affecting the treatment of hypertension.
The purpose of this study is to further elaborate the role of both arterial blood pressure and end-tidal carbon dioxide concentration on measured venous pressures.
In this study researchers want to learn more about Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension, a type of high blood pressure in the lungs related to the narrowing of the small blood vessels in the lungs (group 1 according to WHO classification). Goal of the study is to describe the signs and risk factors of the illness at study start and the chances of survival.
To investigate the proportion, medication use and control rate of metabolic abnormalities such as dyslipidemia in outpatients with hypertension in different levels of hospitals in China. To investigate the gap between guidelines and clinical practices, and analyze the cause. we also set up a continuing medical education program to narrow the gap and the effect of the program will be estimated.
The goal of this study was to assess the efficacy and safety of FDC therapy with triple therapy of Telmisartan 40 mg/Amlodipine 5 mg/Rosuvastatin 10mg in Korean patients with both hypertension and dyslipidemia.
The primary aim is to identify the impacts of a behavioral intervention called "Mindfulness-Based Blood Pressure Reduction" (MB-BP) vs. enhanced usual care on the primary self-regulation target, specifically an assay of self-related processes (Multidimensional Assessment of Interoceptive Awareness) (MAIA) at 6 months, via a randomized controlled trial.
