The present study has showed that majority of patients have a decrement in Right ventricular systolic pressure after successful PTMC.9,10 Hamdy et al found in their study that up to 61.54% of patients normalized their RV systolic function after successful PTMC which support our findings.9 In another study, Mohan, et al.10 found that about 65% of patients improved their systolic function within one year duration and their RV systolic function returned to normal values.10 Mohan et al., studied 25 patients with isolated rheumatic mitral stenosis before, immediately after (mean, 40+-12 h) and at a mean follow-up of 11.5 months and found that after successful PTMC, right ventricular global function tends to normalize in about two-thirds of the patients.10
The participants were each assigned to a group targeted at systolic pressure of less than 120, which received an average of three medications, or less than 140, which was treated with an average of two.
Systolic pressure, diastolic pressure, and heart rate were consistently lower following propofol than methohexital (p less than 0.005).
As a result, there are no good studies showing that younger people benefit from taking drugs to achieve a particular systolic pressure.
** Systolic Pressure (the top number on your reading) reflects the pressure in your arteries when the heart beats
As intracranial pressure increases, systolic pressure has to increase to continue to perfuse the brain.
The first larger number is known as the systolic pressure. This is the peak pressure of blood pumping round the body.
Results of this study indicate that the application of carvacrol decreased heart rate, systolic pressure, diastolic pressure and mean arterial pressure in normotensive rats and exhibited a marked hypotensive effect.
This phenomenon is known as systolic pressure variation and represents a potentially powerful tool in the assessment and manipulation of fluid status.
Systolic pressure dropped by an average of 7 mm Hg, while diastolic pressure fell by an average of 5 mm Hg.
The first number, called systolic pressure, measures the pressure when your heart beats.
