Previous studies have explored the correlation and impact of astrological events in relation of diseases, health concerns and relationship between birth chart and disease risk. Cardiovascular conditions, sleep and fertility were found significantly associated with moon phase. However, to best of our knowledge no study has documented the impact of astrological intervention in disease management. This is a randomised, multi-center, double blind placebo controlled clinical trial with two parallel arms. This trial aims to evaluate the effectiveness of Vedic medical astrological intervention for patients with mild to moderate hypertension,with respect to decreasing their blood pressure and improving their quality of life.
Sedentary (n=24) adults ≥18 yr with elevated BP to established hypertension were enrolled into this randomized clinical trial entitled, 'Blood Pressure UtiLizing Self-Monitoring after Exercise study or PULSE'. Participants were randomly assigned to either an exercise only (EXERCISE; n=12) or exercise plus BP self-monitoring (EXERCISE+PEH) (n=12) group. All participants participated in a 12 wk supervised moderate intensity aerobic exercise training program 40 min/d for 3 d/wk. In addition, they were encouraged to exercise at home ≥30 min/d for 1-2 d/wk. All participants self-monitored exercise with a traditional calendar recording method and heart rate (HR) monitor. In addition to traditional exercise self-monitoring (EXERCISE), individuals in the EXERCISE+PEH group were given a home BP monitor to assess home BP twice daily (in the morning upon awakening and in the evening) and prior to and after voluntary home exercise sessions. Resting BP, peak oxygen consumption (VO2peak), physical activity, dietary and salt intake, and antihypertensive medication adherence were measured before and after the 12 wk supervised exercise training program. In addition, integrated social-cognitive predictors of exercise that included questionnaires on exercise self-efficacy, barriers self-efficacy, outcome expectations for exercise, exercise intention, and affective responses to exercise were measured before and after the 12 wk supervised exercise training program. Four weeks following the completion of exercise training, self-reported exercise levels were assessed during a telephone interview in both groups. Among EXERCISE+PEH only, self-monitoring of BP was also self-reported during this telephone interview.
This study will evaluate the effect of household-based screening and care encouragement for blood pressure on subsequent changes in blood pressure. The study uses a quasi-experimental regression discontinuity design with existing population-based secondary data from the 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014, and 2017 waves of the National Income Dynamics Study in South Africa.
Glucocorticoids are widely used for the treatment of chronic inflammatory diseases. In 2008, it was estimated that 0.8% of the United Kingdom adult population had used long-term (≥ 3 months) glucocorticoids, rising to 3% in women aged over 80 years. The aim of the project is to investigate the dose-response estimates of risk of high blood pressure associated with oral glucocorticoids.
This was a double-blinded randomized controlled trial of 24-hour blood pressure control in sub Saharan type 2 diabetes patients, newly diagnosed for hypertension. They were allocated to receive either a fixed combination of perindopril + amlodipine or perindopril + indapamide for 42 days.
Postmenopausal women have a higher prevalence of cardiovascular (CV) disease than age-match men. Growing evidence from rat studies have demonstrated CV-protective effects of pumpkin seed oil (PSO). The investigators hypothesis is that PSO would improve CV health in postmenopausal women.
The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of preoperative operating room environment introduction on preoperative hypertension and blood pressure in hypertensive patients.
The aim of this study was to compare haemodynamic changes, total dose of ephedrin requirement, and level of sensory blockade between fractionated dose and single dose spinal anesthesia injection in obstetric patients with pregnancy-induced hypertension who underwent Caesarean section
Aim of the study is to compare novel parameters of right ventricle (RV) function from right heart catheterization (RHC) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with PET-derived RV FDG uptake.
This study aimed to evaluate the role of the cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI) in evaluating arterial stiffness changes, the degree of atherosclerosis in patients with hypertension after 1 year of treatment and analysis the correlation between CAVI and cardiovascular risk factors.
