(dī'ă-stol'ik)
Relating to diastole.

diastolic

Pertaining to DIASTOLE. The diastolic blood pressure is the pressure during diastole and is the lower of the two figures measured. The peak pressure is called the SYSTOLIC pressure.

Diastolic

The phase of blood circulation in which the heart's pumping chambers (ventricles) are being filled with blood. During this phase, the ventricles are at their most relaxed, and the pressure against the walls of the arteries is at its lowest.

Diastolic function has a lower threshold than systolic function; therefore, DD precedes the onset of systolic dysfunction and persists longer than systolic disturbance in ischemia.
In order to reduce the outcome of late cardiac dysfunction, doctors have been exploring factors such as negative ventricular remodeling, left ventricular contraction, and diastolic dysfunction.
Mean and standard deviation (mean +- SD) were calculated for age, systolic and diastolic BP at 0, 2, 4 and 8 weeks.

To the best of our knowledge, the present study was the first to reveal a significant association between pQTc interval and LV diastolic functions in patients with preserved LV systolic function and permanent pacemakers.
The "absent diastolic flow," possibly reflecting the decrease of intrasac blood flow, may predict spontaneous resolution of UAP.

The multivariate logistic regression model selected the same set of clinical variables but a different diastolic parameter which independently predicted the probability of maintaining a normal LAVi over time: younger age (OR 1.22, CI 1.06-1.42, p < 0.01), white race (OR 5.62, CI 0.55-57.49, p = 0.15), being on ACE-I therapy (OR 6.73, CI 0.66-68.34, p = 0.11), and higher E-to-A ratio (OR 8.84, CI 1.05-74.29, p = 0.05).
There are limited treatment options for diastolic dysfunction and even fewer for diabetes-induced diastolic dysfunction.
In addition, patients with atrial and/or ventricular pace rhythm on the ECG used for the measurement of diastolic parameters were also excluded.
