pressures are recorded for both of the upper extremities and lower extremities, the higher of the mean systolic
pressure from each leg (if multiple arteries are assessed) should be compared to the higher mean systolic
pressure from the brachial artery (regardless of side used for assessment).
8 years included the Systolic
Hypertension in Elderly Program (SHEP) (5), Systolic
Hypertension in Europe Trial (Syst-Eur) (6), Systolic
Hypertension in China Trial (Syst-China) (7), European Working Party on High Blood Pressure in the Elderly (EWPHE) (8), the trial on Hypertension in Elderly Patients in Primary Care (HEP) (9), the Swedish Trial on Old Patients with Hypertension (STOP) (10), and the Medical Research Council Trials in mild hypertension (MRC) (11), and in older adults (MRC 2) (12), showed a beneficial effect of the treatment of systolic
hypertension on cardiovascular outcomes.
HFSA guidelines for management of patients with heart failure cause by left ventricular systolic
This is "primarily as a result of inadequate systolic
blood pressure control.
After four weeks, the investigators found that the group with 150 or greater baseline systolic
blood pressure on just the DASH diet had an average of 11 mm Hg reduction in systolic
blood pressure compared to a 4 mm Hg reduction in those solely on the DASH diet, but whose baseline systolic
pressures were less than 130.
The research team from the Jerusalem College of Technology and the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Israel developed a device using a technique called photoplethysmography to more accurately measure systolic
Detailed physical examination and echocardiographic evaluation, particularly the thoracic aorta is must while evaluating a child with dilated left ventricle with severe systolic
dysfunction because missing coarctation in such cases might have deadly consequences.
A progressive increase in nocturia severity was seen with increasing systolic
It will be shown that an efficient way to convert the inverse DST into such structures can lead to an optimal VLSI implementation using systolic
Following 20 weeks of treatment, Systolic
ejection time increased by 25.
Hence, these durations may be short times to have effect on systolic
function and cardiovascular damage in type 1 DM patients.
The American Heart Association, American Society for Hypertension and International Society for Hypertension all recommend patients maintain a systolic
blood pressure of 140 mmHg or lower until age 80, after which 150 mmHg is acceptable.
