This study evaluates the efficacy of intensive surveillance, prevention and treatment of intra-abdominal hypertension in ICU patients. In the first two months patients will be screened and undergo usual care. In the following 10-months patients will have more intensive screening and active measures towards prevention and treatment according to best practices.
This trial will examine the effects of the intervention on changes in dietary quality and blood pressure among men and women with high blood pressure, using the new blood pressure guidelines for non-pharmacological treatment. The primary outcome is 6-month change in DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) adherence, as measured by 24-hour recalls. DASH adherence will be measured at 12-months post-randomization. Secondary outcomes include changes in blood pressure and other physiological outcomes (e.g. weight, lipids, glucose).
A home-based, tailored, technology-enhanced home-based exercise program (iHBE) using a combination of the integrated mobile technologies (wearable device and phone application) and tailored home-based exercise will be pilot tested. Participants will choose one of the four home-based exercise options [National Institute of Aging (NIA) Go4Life (an exercise and physical activity campaign from the NIA), Iyengar-style yoga, walking, and modified Otago exercise] based on participants' preference and goals. The integrated mobile technologies system will allow the investigators to extract heart rate data directly from the wearable device to the research server. This data will be used to provide appropriate and personalized feedback on physical performance. The survey and notification to the participants on the smartphone.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Background: 1. Burden: Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, including preeclampsia, complicate up to 10% of pregnancies worldwide, constituting one of the greatest causes of fetal growth restriction, preterm birth, low birth weight, perinatal mortality, and maternal morbidity and mortality. In Bangladesh, 24% of all maternal deaths are directly attributed to hypertensive causes. Conventional antenatal care practice often delays in or misses diagnosing hypertension in pregnancy, which makes the women vulnerable to its adverse consequences. 2. Knowledge gap: Although there are randomised controlled trials (RCT) of efforts directed at preventing development of hypertension in pregnancy or reducing its complications, there have been no published RCTs of the intervention focusing on regular monitoring of weight gain and blood pressure among pregnant women who are at risk of developing hypertension in pregnancy or its complications to ensure early diagnosis, and thereby optimizing the perinatal outcomes through prompt referral and management. 3. Relevance: To undertake an RCT of intervention to optimize adverse consequences in hypertension in pregnancy raises important practical concerns including: commitment of the enrolled women, the need to make a decision regarding participation due to longer duration of intervention and adherence to protocol. Investigators aim to perform this study to address whether an RCT of the intervention in individual patients is an appropriate trial design, and is feasible. Objectives: 1. To evaluate the accuracy of Salu Health Gauge device in measuring blood pressure. 2. To test the design, feasibility, acceptability and fidelity of a future definitive randomized controlled trial focusing on regular monitoring of weight gain and continuous self-monitoring of blood pressure among pregnant women who are at risk of developing hypertension in pregnancy. Methods: The study will be completed in two steps: 1) the validation of Salu Health Gauge and 2) the pilot trial. The study will be conducted in Matlab, Bangladesh. Salu Health Gauge device will be validated according to the European Society of Hypertension International Protocol revision 2010 (ESH-IP revision 2010) in general adult population (including men and non-pregnant women) as well as in specific groups such as adolescents and pregnant women. The pilot trial is designed as a prospective, two-arm, parallel, and open-label randomized controlled external pilot trial. Eligible participants (pregnant women at risk of developing hypertension in pregnancy) will be individually randomized 1:1 to the intervention arm who will use a wearable device (Salu Health Gauge) from 20 weeks of gestation up to termination of pregnancy alongside conventional antenatal and postnatal care or the control arm who will receive conventional antenatal and postnatal care only. In Matlab, a woman is diagnosed as pregnant by HDSS field staff by 12-16 weeks of gestation and is enlisted. The investigators will obtain this list from HDSS and conduct baseline interviews to identify pregnant women at risk of developing hypertension in pregnancy. Outcome measures/variables: 1. Feasibility outcomes: Recruitment rate, Retention rate, compliance, Acceptability etc. 2. Clinical outcomes: gestational weight gain, birth weight, adverse consequence of hypertension in pregnancy (episodes or occurrence and when), blood pressure profile of high-risk pregnancies, prevalence of specific risk factors for hypertension in pregnancy 3. Serious adverse events
This study evaluates the duration of intraocular pressure (IOP)-lowering effect and safety of as needed administrations of Bimatoprost sustained release (SR) in participants with open-angle glaucoma (OAG) or ocular hypertension (OHT) who are not adequately managed with topical IOP-lowering medication for reasons other than medication efficacy.
