Instead a corrected formula, which calculates mean blood pressure taking into account the systolic and diastolic proportion during the cardiac cycle, should be employed.
Table 2 shows the mean blood pressures of the population with respect to their age groups.
Body weight and tail mean blood pressure (MBP) was assessed weekly by tail-cuff plethysmography (Coda-VPR, Kent Scientific, Torrington, CT, USA).
The systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure and mean blood pressure (MBP) were all determined, as were the weight, height, age and body surface area.
Mean blood pressure levels increased for the control group, and decreased modestly for the 500 mg group.
The studies showed that the highest approved dose of azilsartan medoxomil (80 mg/day) resulted in significantly greater reduction in systolic blood pressure than the highest approved doses of olmesartan medoxomil (40 mg/day) and valsartan (320 mg/day) and the ACE inhibitor ramipril (10 mg/day) in lowering both clinic and 24-hour mean blood pressure measurements.
9] But, in another study, systolic blood pressure was more closely correlated with intraocular pressure [10], which was contradictory to the present study, wherein mean blood pressure was more correlated with IOP, the reason for this difference could be the age difference of the subjects in these two studies.
A mixed-effects linear regression analysis was performed to evaluate the differences among mean blood pressure measurements in the individual bird, obtained from the wing versus leg site as well as from 3 different cuff placements at each site.
Assessment of systolic blood pressure in pulmonary artery (SPPAICG), diastolic (DPPAICG) and mean blood pressure in pulmonary artery (MPPAICG) was performed by using modified Burstin's equations (1-3):
Though it is not possible to measure TPR directly, TPR can be estimated from CO and mean blood pressure (MBP) as Eq.
These results consistent with our previous knowledge are strong enough to conclude that water aerobic exercise can efficiently reduce systolic and mean blood pressure.
They found that people who experienced the greatest variability in systolic blood pressure readings (the highest number of the ratio) over the course of seven visits to their doctors' offices had a six-times-greater risk of later suffering a major stroke than people who had the least variability, independent of mean blood pressure.
