The patient was sent a wrist blood pressure cuff for heart rate and blood pressure monitoring and was advised to keep his rate-pressure product
(heart rate multiplied by systolic blood pressure) below 36,000 (2).
They compared oxygen cost, heart rate, blood pressure, rate-pressure product
, and rating of perceived exertion.

ATP turnover during low-flow ischemia was inversely related to recovery of the rate-pressure product
(P = 0.
(RPP) was calculated by multiplying HR by SAP.
Heart rate and the rate-pressure product
as determinants of cardiovascular risk in patients with hypertension.
The important anti-ischemic effects of NovaDel's nitroglycerin lingual spray were also evidenced by the prolongation of the time to 1mm ST segment depression and the subjects' ability to exercise to a higher rate-pressure product
The rate-pressure product

In one of the first head-to-head trials to compare the advantages of two blood pressure treatments administered at night, Biovail Corporation's (NYSE, TSX: BVF) Cardizem(R) LA outperformed Altace(R), the nation's top selling branded ACE inhibitor, on trial endpoints including reductions in early-morning and 24-hour blood pressure, heart rate and rate-pressure product
, a strong correlate of myocardial oxygen consumption.
Training was symptom-limited; patients were monitored for hypertension (blood pressure >240/110 mm Hg), hypotension (systolic blood pressure decrease of >10 mm Hg), elevated rate-pressure product
(>36,000), ventricular arrhythmias, ST depression, angina, dizziness, pain, shortness of breath, and perceived exertion.
During the second test, exercise was carried to the same rate-pressure product
and each patient received the opposite infusion.
