They look for patterns," including blood pressure load
, and the presence--or not--of a normal drop in blood pressure at night.
Relevance of the trough-to-peak ratio to the 24 h blood pressure LOAD.
Assessment of the daily blood pressure LOAD as a determinant of cardiac function in patients with mild-to-moderate hypertension.
Blood pressure load determines left ventricular mass in essential hypertension.
Twenty-four-hour blood pressure load as a surrogate end-point in assessing antihypertensive therapy.
Blood pressure load, the percentage throughout the day of systolic readings greater than 140 mm Hg or diastolic readings greater than 90 mm Hg, was calculated for the 24-hour period for each recording.
Blood pressure load has been reported to be useful for diagnosing hypertension.
Blood pressure load is defined as the percentage of blood pressure readings equal to or above the cutoff point for determining elevated readings.
Systolic and diastolic blood pressure load percentages [is greater than or equal to]95th percentile for each group arw shown in Figure 1.
