Toe systolic pressures and toe-brachial indices: uses, abuses, and shades of gray.

Authors:
Robert Trevethan

Blood Press Monit 2019 Apr;24(2):45-51

Independent Academic Researcher and Author, Albury, New South Wales, Australia.

This article commences with arguments that toe systolic pressure (TSP) should be used as a means of diagnosing low blood pressure in relation to the prospect of wound nonhealing and amputation risk, that the toe-brachial index (TBI) should be used as a means of screening for peripheral artery disease, and that those specific uses for TSPs and TBIs should not be confused with each other. Problems associated with measurement of TSPs and TBIs are described, an attempt is made to establish abnormal threshold values for each, and tables are presented as aids to decision making while also indicating the need to take uncertainties into account. A possible role for TBIs in monitoring pedal vascular supply is given consideration. Read More

The blood pressure variability and baroreflex sensitivity in healthy participants are not determined by sex or cardiorespiratory fitness.

Blood Press Monit 2018 Oct;23(5):260-270

Department of Biomechanics, Medicine and Rehabilitation, Ribeirão Preto Medical School, University of São Paulo, Ribeirão Preto, São Paulo, Brazil.

Background: Heart rate (HR) and blood pressure (BP) autonomic modulation and baroreflex sensitivity (BRS) are important indexes of cardiovascular homeostasis. However, methodological errors are often observed, such as joint analysis of men and women. Another important aspect is that we still do not know whether cardiorespiratory fitness influences these autonomic parameters in healthy individuals. Read More

Association of systolic blood pressure with cardiovascular outcomes in elderly patients with hypertension in Northern China.

Blood Press Monit 2018 Oct;23(5):271-276

Departments of Neurology.

Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the association of systolic blood pressure (SBP) with cardiovascular disease and all-cause mortality among elderly hypertensive patients in northern China.

Participants And Methods: In this prospective cohort study, 9655 elderly hypertensive patients from Kailuan study were followed up with the incidence of primary outcomes (composite outcomes including myocardial infarction, stroke, and all-cause death) and the incidence of secondary outcomes (stroke, myocardial infarction, and all-cause death). Patients were categorized into five groups on the basis of SBP levels: Q1 (SBP<130 mmHg), Q2 (130≤SBP<140 mmHg), Q3 (140≤SBP<150 mmHg), Q4 (150≤SBP<160 mmHg), and Q5 (SBP≥160 mmHg). Read More
