KOL-Index: 82 In a multiethnic cohort of older people with diabetes (n=1178), we assessed whether ambulatory blood pressure (BP) monitoring improves prediction of all-cause mortality and cardiovascular mortality when added to baseline covariates, including office BP and heart rate (HR). Secondary analyses assessed whether albuminuria may mediate the association of pulse pressure with mortality. The ...

KOL-Index: 58 Home blood pressure monitoring (HBPM) overcomes many of the limitations of traditional office blood pressure (BP) measurement and is both cheaper and easier to perform than ambulatory BP monitoring. Monitors that use the oscillometric method are currently available that are accurate, reliable, easy to use, and relatively inexpensive. An increasing number of patients are using them regularly ...

KOL-Index: 47 Mercury sphygmomanometers are gradually being phased out, not because of any technological advances but because of environmental concerns. While mercury is still accepted as the 'gold standard' for routine clinical measurement, it suffers from two deficiencies: poor observer technique, and problems due to poor maintenance of the devices. At the same time, there is no generally accepted ...

KOL-Index: 45 Identification of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) using 12-lead ECG criteria based primarily on QRS amplitudes has been limited by poor sensitivity at acceptable levels of specificity. Because the product of QRS voltage and duration, as an approximation of the time-voltage area of the QRS complex, can improve accuracy of the 12-lead ECG for LVH, we examined the diagnostic value of true ...

KOL-Index: 41 Accurate measurement of blood pressure is essential to classify individuals, to ascertain blood pressure-related risk, and to guide management. The auscultatory technique with a trained observer and mercury sphygmomanometer continues to be the method of choice for measurement in the office, using the first and fifth phases of the Korotkoff sounds, including in pregnant women. The use of ...

Blood Pressure Monitoring
KOL-Index: 34 The non-dipping pattern of blood pressure (defined as a nocturnal fall of less than 10%) occurs in about 25% of hypertensives, with increased prevalence in certain sub-groups such as diabetics, African-Americans, and patients with renal disease. It almost certainly has multiple causes, including factors such as the levels of activity and arousal during both the day and the night, the depth ...

KOL-Index: 33 Associations between sleep-disordered breathing and cardiovascular disease (CVD) may be mediated by higher cardiovascular risk factor levels in those with sleep-disordered breathing. The authors examined these relations in the Sleep Heart Health Study, a multiethnic cohort of 6,440 men and women over age 40 years conducted from October 1995 to February 1998 and characterized by home ...
