Objective: The aim of this study was to to determine possible daytime (awake hours) and nighttime (sleeping hours) LOAD limits for ambulatory pulse pressure (PP) and double product (DP) in hypertensive (HT) subjects and secondly to assess whether there were significant differences in the LOAD values between hypertensive (HT) and normotensive (NT) subjects.
She was very pale and anxious, with symptoms of tachycardia, tachypnea, low pulse pressure, oliguria and delayed nail capillary refill time.
Participants had their pulse pressure taken and lumbar punctures to obtain spinal fluid.
As an alternative to these static indices, dynamic preload indices, such as pulse pressure variation (PPV) and stroke volume variation (SVV), have been reported to indicate cardiac response to volume loading in several clinical settings during mechanical ventilation (3-8).
Other cardiovascular parameters that were assessed by this instrument during the testing included resting systolic and diastolic BP, pulse pressure (PP), resting heart rate (RHR), SVR, and TVI.
We found a significant interaction between arsenic and statins for DBP but not for SBP or pulse pressure (Table 3).
Pulse pressure not mean pressure determines cardiovascular risk in older hypertensive patients.
12) reported that socioeconomic status had an inverse significant effect on the systolic blood pressure, heart rate and pulse pressure of adult Nigerians.
From our laboratory studies, it is clear that stroke volume and pulse pressure (systolic minus diastolic blood pressure) decrease consistently with central hypovolemia, at least on a group mean basis.
A femoral artery was catheterized and used for measuring arterial pressure, pulse pressure, heart rate and DP/dt and for sampling systemic arterial blood.
The indices ranged in level of difficulty to performfrom automatic (PVI, noninvasively obtained via the Masimo Radical-7 Pulse CO-Oximeter) to invasive (DeltaPP, respiratory variations in arterial pulse pressure obtained via arterial catheter) to operator-dependent (CO, cardiac output obtained via echocardiography).
These researchers used a technique that analyzes waveforms created by pulse pressure at the wrist to estimate elasticity (the opposite of stiffness) of large and small arteries.
