Isolated systolic blood pressure (SBP) is one of the most common cardiovascular diseases, particularly in the elderly. During the study, researchers assessed a total of 842,600 people aged 65 years and older. The participants’ blood pressure was measured using a mercury sphygmomanometer and appropriate-size arm cuffs. The researchers recorded up to four readings, each taken while the participants rested for 5 minutes in a sitting position. The mean SBP was calculated for each reading, and it was then determined whether the patient had isolated systolic hypertension. The average SBP for the group was compared to a normal norm, with SBP less than 140 mm Hg.
The researchers found that ISH was significantly associated with age and BMI. The risk of developing chronic heart disease and CVD was greater in older people. However, younger adults had higher rates of systolic hypertension and diastolic hypertension. The findings of this study have implications for the prevention and management of systolic and diastolic hypertension.
The prevalence of ISH was 4.3%, according to the JNC-7 criteria. The prevalence of ISH was significantly related to age, sex, and BMI, which may indicate a genetic cause. Additionally, those with this condition were more likely to smoke than those without hypertension. The study found that ISH was also associated with lower socioeconomic status, whereas those with normal SBP were more likely to be white.
Although isolated systolic hypertension in adults is not often associated with cardiovascular disease, age has been found to be a determinant. An age-related diagnosis of the disease is associated with a higher risk for stroke and heart failure, and a higher risk of mortality if left untreated. The study also found an association between obesity and elevated systolic blood pressure.
A study conducted in the US used data from the NHANES database. The participants were mainly middle-aged and white, and 85% of them were non-Hispanic. Those who were obese or overweight were more likely to have systolic hypertension. While the study included only white, healthy individuals, it was limited to women and was based on a small sample.
ISHY is often diagnosed in women. In women, the diagnosis can be diagnosed based on the patient’s age and gender. Generally, patients with ISHY are older and non-Hispanic. In the US, this condition is rare in children, although it affects both men and women. It is usually mild in older adults, with most cases presenting only symptoms in the middle age.
Despite the high prevalence of ISH among middle-aged people, this disease is rare in adults. It is estimated to occur in nearly 4% of adults in the US. The study population was stratified by age, and results are presented for men and women of all races, ethnicities, and education levels. The results of this study suggest that this condition is more prevalent in the US than in other countries.
Isolated systolic hypertension is an adult condition. The prevalence of the condition varied between 10% and 30% of the population. Hence, the study population of these areas was selected based on the prevalence of ISH. The researchers performed multiple logistic regressions and analysed the data. The study also identified a number of determinants of ISH.
Isolated systolic hypertension is a common condition in the adult population. The prevalence of ISH ranged from 10% to 30% in the country, and it was observed in approximately 20% of the subjects. The study sample size was determined based on the prevalence of the disease. This result shows that the prevalence of ISH in the region was significantly higher in men than in women.
The frequency of food consumption was also associated with elevated SBP. The respondents consumed less fruits and vegetables than the rest of the population. Those who ate more fruits and vegetables had lower blood pressure compared to those who ate less. But a more significant association was found between increased intake of fruit and vegetables and reduced systolic blood pressure. These two factors have a strong correlation with baseline systolic blood pressure.
