In fact, she said, doctors once thought that diastolic
blood pressure was the more important one -- based on research at the time.
The overall prevalence of hypertension for systolic and diastolic
is 4.12% and 3.88% respectively.
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
Mean and standard deviation (mean +- SD) were calculated for age, systolic and diastolic
BP at 0, 2, 4 and 8 weeks.
Key Words: Pre-eclampsia, Diastolic
blood pressure, Labetalol, Methyldopa
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.
We used independent sample f-test to analyze the mean difference in both systolic and diastolic
blood pressure between each gender and between smoking statuses.
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
In addition, patients with atrial and/or ventricular pace rhythm on the ECG used for the measurement of diastolic
parameters were also excluded.
