About 27% (n = 27) of smokers had SBP >120 mmHg and 29% (n = 29) of smokers had DBP >80 mmHg.
There was a higher incidence of raised IOP (>21 mmHg) among diabetic patients compared with non-diabetics after IVTA.
Lifestyle changes, particularly diet and exercise, can reduce systolic blood pressure by approximately 4 to 11 mmHg for patients with hypertension.
I described 130/75 mmHg as the 'sweet spot' for BP control.
Patel et al16 reported that treatment with methyldopa was associated with reduction in diastolic blood pressure by 30 mmHg at 72 hours post-intervention and labetalol was associated with reduction of 36 mmHg in diastolic BP after similar time with statistically significant difference.
The new guideline specifies that normal systolic pressure is under 120 mmHg.
High preoperative IOP and decrease of IOP showed a significant association with the development of ODR.[4],[5] Previous studies showed that the IOPs before and after ODR were 45.7 [+ or -] 16.9 mmHg and 13.2 [+ or -] 10.3 mmHg, respectively, with a mean IOP drop of 33.2 [+ or -] 15.8 mmHg; the postoperative IOP per se did not play a crucial role in the occurrence of retinal hemorrhage after glaucoma surgery.[4],[5] Similarly, the hypotony in the OD may play an important role in the decompression retinopathy.
The objective of this study was to compare the effectiveness of ECS with different pressures (15-20 mmHg and 20-30 mmHg) in individuals working in different prolonged postures (sitting, standing, and combination).
Data from the REVEAL registry has shown that PAH associated with PAWP > 19 mmHg has an increase mortality compared to PAWP < 15 mmHg [12,13].
The fetal intraperitoneal pressure was 18 mmHg before drainage, 14 mmHg after drainage, and 32 mmHg when confirming UC on palpation.
For systolic blood pressure, we found that 90 (17.8%) participants have blood pressure equal to or more than 130 mmHg, and 31 (6.1%) participants have blood pressure equal to or more than 140 mmHg.
