Night-time ambulatory blood pressure is the best pretreatment blood pressure predictor of 11-year mortality in treated older hypertensives.

Blood Press Monit 2018 Oct;23(5):237-243

Department of Renal Medicine, St. George Hospital, University of New South Wales, New South Wales, Australia.

Background: Numerous studies have shown a stronger relationship between ambulatory blood pressure (ABP), particularly night ABP, and cardiovascular events/mortality than for office blood pressure (OBP). A previous clinical trial (Syst-Eur) showed that pretreatment ABP was only a better predictor of outcome than OBP in placebo-treated participants. The current study in treated elderly hypertensives from the Second Australian National Blood Pressure study (ANBP2) examined whether pretreatment ABP was a better predictor of mortality than OBP over long-term (∼11 years) follow-up.

Use of patient simulators to characterize the repeatability and reproducibility of automated oscillometric blood pressure monitors.

Blood Press Monit 2018 Oct;23(5):225-229

Center for Devices and Radiological Health, US Food and Drug Administration, Silver Spring, Maryland, USA.

Objectives: Automated oscillometric blood pressure (BP) monitors can be critical health assessment tools if they are accurate and can provide repeatable and reproducible readings. Commercial patient simulators are capable of screening for poorly performing oscillometric BP monitors. A valid screening bench test method to identify unreliable and underperforming BP monitors could advance surveillance of these devices and support regulatory decision making. Read More

Assessment of pupillary autonomic functions by dynamic pupillometry in different circadian arterial blood pressure patterns.

Blood Press Monit 2018 Aug;23(4):203-209

Department of Cardiology, Memorial Ankara Hospital.

Objective: The aim of the present cross-sectional study was to evaluate the autonomic nervous system by dynamic pupillometry (DP) in normotensive and hypertensive individuals with either a non-dipper-type or a dipper-type circadian rhythm of blood pressure (BP).

Patients And Methods: A total of 80 patients were allocated into four groups: normotensive/dipper (n=23), normotensive/nondipper (n=19), hypertensive/dipper (n=18), and hypertensive/nondipper (n=20). Pupil diameters (R0, R1, R2, and R%): latency (Lc), amplitude (Ac), velocity (Vc), and duration (Tc) of pupil contraction: latency (Ld), velocity (Vd), and duration (Td) of pupil dilatation were measured by DP.
