Sample text

These white coat phenomena are important because a decision to initiate drug treatment or to modify drug dosage should never be made on the basis of conventional measurement of blood pressure. Posture White coat hypertension White coat hypertension is a condition where people with n ­ ormal blood pressure outside the medical environment have hypertension during measurement by doctors and nurses. White coat Posture affects blood pressure, with a general tendency for it to decrease when a person moves from the lying position to the sitting or standing positions.

These patterns include isolated systolic hypertension, white coat hypertension and hypotension. Elderly patients may also have pseudohypertension, a condition in which there is a large discrepancy between cuff and direct measurement of blood pressure in elderly patients. When conventional measurements seem to be out of proportion with the clinical findings, referral to a specialist cardiovascular centre for further investigation may be an appropriate option. Obese people The association between obesity and hypertension has been confirmed in many epidemiological studies.

Ambulatory blood pressure measurement is being used increasingly in children. Elderly people In epidemiological and interventional studies, blood pressure predicts morbidity and mortality in elderly people as effectively as in the young. Elderly people have considerable variability in blood pressure, which can lead to a number of diurnal blood pressure patterns that are identified best with ambulatory blood pressure measurement. These patterns include isolated systolic hypertension, white coat hypertension and hypotension.
