"There's been a common belief that systolic
blood pressure is the only one that matters," Flint said.
The participating clinicians successfully maintained patients in each of the treatment groups at close to their goal systolic
Patients with a single episode of systolic
pressure lower than or equal to 110mmHg during the one-year period were twice as likely to experience a serious fall or faint.
In our study, GLS was reduced in 4% of the study population that correlated well with a reduced LV ejection fraction of < 30% indicating LV systolic
Mean and standard deviation (mean +- SD) were calculated for age, systolic
and diastolic BP at 0, 2, 4 and 8 weeks.
We used independent sample f-test to analyze the mean difference in both systolic
and diastolic blood pressure between each gender and between smoking statuses.
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.
There was global left ventricular hypokinesia with severe systolic
dysfunction (Ejection Fraction 20%).
NEW ORLEANS -- Uncontrolled systolic
hypertension is a strong independent determinant of nocturia in middle-aged African American men, O'Neil Mason, MD, reported at the American Heart Association scientific sessions.
Thus, the use of regular and modular computational structures as cycle convolution and circular correlation having local and regular data communications can be very useful in obtaining a good VLSI implementation for DCT, IDCT [10-18], DST and IDST [20-23], discrete Fourier transform (DFT)  or discrete Hartley transform (DHT) [24-29] using both the systolic
array architectural paradigm or distributed arithmetic [30-34].
The trial evaluated 448 patients with chronic heart failure and left ventricular systolic
In this sense, this study population may have a low risk of CVD, especially of systolic
dysfunction, which can be a complication of microangiopathy and macroangiopathy.
