Comparison of self- and nurse-measured office blood pressure in patients with chronic kidney disease.

Blood Press Monit 2020 May 25. Epub 2020 May 25.

Department of Renal Medicine, Aarhus University Hospital.

Objective: As blood pressure (BP) control is very important in chronic kidney disease (CKD), we investigated how office BP is influenced by the measurement circumstances and compared nonautomated self- and nurse-measured BP values.

Materials And Methods: Two hundred stage 1-5 CKD patients with scheduled visits to an outpatient clinic were randomized to either self-measured office BP (SMOBP) followed by nurse-measured office BP (NMOBP) or NMOBP followed by SMOBP. The participants had been educated to perform the self-measurement in at least one previous visit. Read More

Patients with elevated blood pressure or stage 1 hypertension have structural heart disease.

Blood Press Monit 2020 May 11. Epub 2020 May 11.

Population Health and Computational Medicine, Miller School of Medicine, University of Miami.

Background: The 2017 American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the American Heart Association (AHA) recommendations lower the hypertension threshold to 130/80 mmHg and recommends treatment for high-risk patients.

Diagnosed in operating room with hypertension: a widespread but unseen affliction.

Blood Press Monit 2020 Jun;25(3):136-141

Anesthesiology and Reanimation Department, Ankara City Hospital.

Objective: The present study aims to describe a widely held misconception in the literature concerning preoperative hypertension diagnosis. The blood pressure elevation occurring in the operative room is seen commonly even in subjects considered hitherto fully normotensive. As these patients have a condition which - similar to White Coat Hypertension (WCH) - indicates the presence of hypertension, and thus necessitates more frequent intraoperative checks. Read More

Higher visit-to-visit blood pressure variability and N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide elevation: influence of left ventricular hypertrophy and left ventricular diastolic function.

Blood Press Monit 2020 Jun;25(3):126-130

Department of Cardiology, Hiroshima City Asa Hospital, Hiroshima, Japan.

Objective: The issue of whether visit-to-visit blood pressure variability (VVV) is associated with higher levels of N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) has been controversial, and the underlying mechanism is not well understood. We hypothesized that (1) VVV is associated with the NT-proBNP level, and (2) this association is mediated by left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy and LV diastolic dysfunction.

Patients And Methods: A total of 72 hypertensive patients were examined. Read More

Department of Medicine, Rapides Regional Medical Center, Alexandria, Louisiana, USA.

Objective: For more than a century since its introduction, mercury sphygmomanometer (HgS) had been the mainstay for office measurement of blood pressure (BP). In light of the environmental and health hazards associated with mercury, there is a need to replace it with mercury-free alternatives all over the world. We aimed to validate the widely used aneroid sphygmomanometer (AnS) by comparing its BP readings against BP readings taken with an HgS. Read More

Inter-arm difference of systolic blood pressure measured by automated double-cuff device is associated with arterial stiffness in patients with hypertension.

Blood Press Monit 2020 Feb;25(1):26-33

Department of Endocrinology, Unit of Cardiovascular Research, Research Institute of Environmental Medicine, Nagoya University, Nagoya, Japan.

Purpose: Inter-arm differences of SBP ≧5 mmHg have been associated with all-cause and cardiovascular mortalities in hypertensive subjects. Inter-arm differences of SBP appears to be mediated by arterial stiffness. We hypothesized inter-arm differences of SBP ≧5 mmHg may be related to higher pulse pressure/stroke volume index, a surrogate marker of arterial stiffness. Read More

A pilot study of hypertension management using a telemedicine treatment approach.

Blood Press Monit 2020 Feb;25(1):18-21

Department of Medical and Health Sciences, Linköping University, Linköping, Sweden.

We recruited 78 men and 94 women to investigate if the proportion of subjects with well-controlled home blood pressure levels could be increased when treatment was guided by smartphone-based telemonitoring. All patients were prescribed one to three antihypertensive drugs. The Accumbo smartphone telemonitoring application was downloaded to the Iphones of the participants and home blood pressure information was gathered from semi-automatic oscillometric blood pressure-recorders by Bluetooth.

Can an automatic oscillometric device replace a mercury sphygmomanometer on blood pressure measurement? a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Blood Press Monit 2019 Dec;24(6):265-276

Department of Nursing, Catholic University of Pusan, Busan, Korea.

Objective: A mercury sphygmomanometer has been considered a gold standard for measuring blood pressure. However, by the Minamata Convention on Mercury, the traditional mercury sphygmomanometer is being replaced by an automated oscillometric device. This study aimed to provide scientific evidence to determine whether an automated oscillometric device can replace a mercury sphygmomanometer and if it is applicable in routine practice. Read More

The measurement of blood pressure by the linear method compared to the deflation methods differently modifies the pulse oximeter alarm frequency.

Blood Press Monit 2020 Feb;25(1):13-17

Department of Dental Anesthesiology, Faculty of Dental Science, Kyushu University, Fukuoka.

Background: Noninvasive blood-pressure measurement device and pulse oximeter are important for patient monitoring. When these are placed on the same side, cuff inflation sometimes causes measurement failure by pulse oximeter.

Objective: The present study aimed to compare the pulse oximeter alarm frequency and pulse-wave disappearance duration between noninvasive blood-pressure measurement using the deflation method and that using the linear inflation method. Read More

Comparison of two blood pressure oscillometric devices: Datascope Accutorr Plus and Mobil-O-Graph PWA and conversion of blood pressure values from one device to the other.

Blood Press Monit 2020 Feb;25(1):42-49

Department of Epidemiology and Health Monitoring, Robert Koch Institute.

Objective: This study aims to compare two oscillometric devices used in national health surveys in Germany, Datascope Accutorr Plus and Mobil-O-Graph PWA and to develop formulas for the conversion of blood pressure (BP) values.

Methods: One hundred and four adults aged 21-86 years had nine alternate same-arm BP measurements according to the International Protocol revision 2010 for the validation of BP measuring devices in adults of the European Society of Hypertension. Measurements 2-8 yielded six pairs of measurements at 30- to 60-second interval with the two devices, totaling 743 pairs used for analysis. Read More

Comparison of a noninvasive 3D force sensor-based method and the invasive arterial cannula in postsurgery intensive care patients: a pilot study.

Blood Press Monit 2019 Dec;24(6):310-314

Faculty of Information Technology and Bionics, Pázmány Péter Catholic University.

Improvement in sensing technologies is leading to new, accurate noninvasive monitoring devices. However, noninvasive continuous blood pressure (BP) monitoring still faces many challenges, such as: patient's movement, device accuracy and consistency. In this study, the accuracy of a novel noninvasive BP measuring system based on a three-axis force sensor is compared with the invasive arterial cannula taking 21 simultaneous measurements mostly on elderly, postsurgical participants.
