The purpose of this study is to test the hypothesis that combined angiotensin receptor blockade (ARB)/neprilysin (NEP) inhibition potentiates the effects of exogenous bradykinin, substance P, and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) on forearm blood flow or endothelial tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA) release compared to ARB alone. A secondary goal is to determine if there is an interactive effect of ARB/NEP inhibition and dipeptidyl peptidase 4 (DPP4) inhibition on responses to these peptides.
This study evaluates the effect of sotatercept (ACE-011) in adults with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension. Each eligible participant will receive standard of care (SOC) plus sotatercept (ACE-011) for a 24 week treatment period followed by a 16 week follow up period.
Hypotension in adult patients undergoing general anesthesia is common. This can lead to hypoperfusion of vital organs, organ damage, and states of increased metabolic duress. This may be worse in patients with underlying essential hypertension and worse in patients taking Angiotensin Converting Enzyme Inhibitors (ACE) and Angiotensin Receptor Blockers (ARBs). Intravenous (IV) administration of Ang II may be an effective treatment of hypotension in this patient population.
The Hypertension Canada Clinical Practice Guidelines for blood pressure measurement using AOBP recommend against any wait time prior to commencing the measurement. The recent AHA guidelines however call for a 5-minute rest first. In uncontrolled hypertension, AOBP is typically higher than the daytime readings from ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM), but this is not the case for patients with controlled hypertension.
This study is a post-marketing open label single arm, single centre clinical trial of electrical carotid sinus stimulation with the Barostim Neo device to target sub-optimally controlled arterial hypertension or highly variable blood pressure in patients for whom no alternative therapies are available.
Study objective - to assess the efficacy, tolerability and adherence of bisoprolol/perindopril FDC in patients with HT and stable CAD in everyday practice. Type of the program: multicenter, observational, uncontrolled, open program. The program will involve 480 general practitioners (GPs) and cardiologists from the primary care facilities.Each doctor includes four patients. It is planned to include not less than 1920 patients in total.
To address the knowledge gap that exists among providers resulting in underdiagnosis of chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH), the investigators have devised this 400-patient single-center Quality Improvement Initiative in the form of a randomized controlled trial of an EPIC Best Practice Advisory (BPA) on-screen alert versus no notification to increase echocardiographic screening for CTEPH and the diagnosis of CTEPH in patients with prior pulmonary embolism (PE) and symptoms/signs suggestive of pulmonary hypertension or recent pulmonary testing suggesting unexplained respiratory symptoms at 3 months. Aim #1: To determine the impact of a Best Practice Advisory (BPA), using the EPIC Electronic Health Record computerized decision support (CDS) software, on echocardiographic screening for CTEPH in patient with prior PE and symptoms/signs suggestive of pulmonary hypertension or recent pulmonary testing suggesting unexplained respiratory symptoms. Aim #2: To determine the impact of an EPIC BPA on the diagnosis of CTEPH in patient with prior PE and symptoms/signs suggestive of pulmonary hypertension or recent pulmonary testing suggesting unexplained respiratory symptoms.
Aim: To investigate if a symptom driven referral for chronic thrombosis in the lungs after acute pulmonary embolism is better than the current approach. Background: A number of patients with chronic thrombosis in the lungs after acute pulmonary embolism have dyspnea and reduced functional capacity without elevated pulmonary arterial pressure at rest (CTED). However, current guidelines for follow-up after acute pulmonary embolism will miss all patients with CTED, as referral for further examination is based on elevated pulmonary arterial pressure on echocardiography. Thus, the prevalence of CTED is unknown. The hypothesis is, that a symptom-driven referral of patients with previous acute pulmonary embolism is more sensitive in diagnosing CTED than the current approach. Methods and materials: Patients diagnosed with acute pulmonary embolism in Region Midt (approx. 350 per year) will be screened for non-recovery or persistent pulmonary embolism related symptoms during their 3-6 months follow up at their local outpatient clinic. If the patient has persistent symptoms they will be referred to a scintigraphy. If CTED is suspected from the scintigraphy, the patient will be referred for full CTED work-up. The investigators expect to screen 300 patients for persistent symptoms with an expected study time of 3 years.
The purpose of this study is to trial remote patient monitoring (RPM) in the postpartum hypertensive population in a randomized control design, with an aim to increase the number of blood pressure measurements taken during the fragile and under-monitored postpartum period and to thereby improve postpartum blood pressure control and reduce severe morbidity and mortality. The investigators plan to compare the number of blood pressures recorded in the first 10 days postpartum between patients who have been enrolled in an RPM trial to those who are being treated with the usual care.
A phase 2b, open label study to assess the safety and efficacy of increasing doses of pulsed, inhaled nitric oxide (iNO) in subjects with pulmonary fibrosis and sarcoidosis on long term oxygen therapy followed by a long term extension study
