The goals of this study were two-fold. First, the attempt to quantify the relationships between pulmonary arterial stiffness, right ventricular function and the efficiency of ventricular-vascular interactions in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Second, the attempt to quantify the effects of exercise on pulmonary arterial stiffness, pulmonary vascular resistance, right ventricular function and the efficiency of ventricular-vascular interactions in patients with PAH.
Recent evidence suggests that there is a directly proportional relationship between diets with a high concentration of antioxidants and the reduction of blood pressure and the risk of cardiovascular events. However, there is a gap with regard to research on the effects of these diets on vascular function, especially in humans. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of antioxidant supplementation through the consumption of blueberry, cranberry and pomegranate extract capsules (1 of each per day), the effect of the autonomic balance in hypertensive and normotensive adults.
To assess the effect of acupuncture versus sham acupuncture on regulating the targeted metabolome of hypertensive patients.
It is hypothesized that the daily supplementation of a nitrate-rich, two-ounce fruit and vegetable energy supplement (Isagenix International LLC) by healthy young adults with a would increase circulating nitrates and improve cardiovascular parameters compared to a nitrate-deficient placebo (prune juice).
Medication errors are common, life-threatening, costly but preventable. Information technology and automated systems are highly efficient for preventing medication errors and therefore widely employed in hospital settings. In this study, investigators would perform a cluster randomized controlled trial of a clinical reminding system that uses DNN and Probabilistic models to detect and notify physicians of inappropriate prescriptions, giving them the opportunity to correct these gaps and increase prescriptions completeness. This study aim is to assess whether or not this system would improve prescription notation for a broad array of patient conditions.
Previous studies have reported a high prevalence of hypertensive (HT) urgency. However, these studies have also reported low rates of serious complications, suggesting that rapid blood pressure (BP) reduction may be unnecessary. There are limited clinical data available on this topic in Asian populations. The investigators aimed to determine the basic characteristics, treatment methods, and outcomes in HT urgency patients, both in the emergency room (ER) and at a two-week follow-up.
It is estimated that more than 70% of patients on antihypertensive medications do not take them as prescribed. Treatment non-adherence practice may be particularly higher in developing countries where there is poor accessibility to medicines and healthcare services, coupled with low level of awareness of the lifelong nature of hypertension treatment among patients. Optimal control of blood pressure has been reported to reduce the incidence of morbidity and mortality associated with hypertension. Thus, adoption of healthy lifestyle as well as ensuring regular and continuous adherence to prescribed medications are integral to successful management of hypertension to achieve the target blood pressure goals. The present study comprehensively evaluated adherence to pharmacotherapy and non-pharmacological measures among ambulatory hypertensive patients attending two healthcare institutions in Sokoto, Northwestern Nigeria. Reasons for treatment non-adherence were evaluated, while perception and beliefs about hypertension and its management were also explored, with pharmacist-led patient-specific adherence education provided as appropriate to resolve the knowledge gap(s). Association between treatment adherence and blood pressure outcome at contact and the subsequent 2-months clinic appointment were investigated. Patients aged 18 years and above, with a primary diagnosis of hypertension, and who were on antihypertensive medications for at least 3-months were recruited from the medical outpatient clinic of Usmanu Danfodiyo University Teaching Hospital and the Specialist Hospital, both within Sokoto metropolis, Sokoto state, Northwestern Nigeria. Newly diagnosed patients, in-patients and those who declined participation were excluded from the study.
This study examines whether a safety-net primary care CKD registry directed at the entire primary care team can enhance the delivery of guideline concordant CKD care, including BP control, ACEi/ARB use and albuminuria quantification.
The aim of the study was to evaluate the effects of hypotensive treatment combined with a higher zinc supply in the diet and supplements on the mineral status and selected biochemical parameters of newly diagnosed hypertensive patients on monotherapy.
Patients were classified into two equal groups using the presence or absence of hypertension during pregnancy into: hypertensive group (BP>140/90) and normotensive group (BP≤140/90. The surgical time intervals are assessed and classified the patients accordingly into short and log time interval subgroups (induction of regional anesthesia to delivery (I-D), initial skin incision to delivery (S-D), and uterine incision to delivery (U-D)
