Waiting a few extra minutes before measuring blood pressure has potentially important clinical and research ramifications
Office blood pressure (BP) is recommended to be measured after 5 min of seated rest, but it may decrease for 10 min of seated rest. This study aimed to determine the change (and its clinical relevance) in brachial and central BP from 5 to 10 min of seated rest. Office brachial and central BP (measured after 5 and 10 min), left ventricular (LV) mass index, 7-day home and ambulatory BP were measured in 250 participants with treated hypertension. Office brachial and central BP were significantly...[Show more]
