New Study Linking 'High Normal' Blood Pressure to Significant Cardiovascular Risk
Date:5/28/2008

d author. "Current guidelines for the diagnosis and management of hypertension are based solely on brachial pressure, yet this results in a large number of individuals being mis-classified based on their central pressure, leading to sub-optimal treatment."

Dr. Michael Weber, Professor of Medicine at SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York, added, "The work of Dr. McEniery and her colleagues emphasizes that conventional blood pressure measurements cannot always identify people at risk of heart attacks and strokes. They are finding that new methods for estimating central blood pressure, which is more closely related to these serious medical outcomes, promises an important new direction in clinical medicine."

"According to recent estimates, over half of American's who suffer a heart attack had no prior signs of heart disease. Early identification of patients at risk, early intervention and effective patient management are critically important, not only to the health of individual patients, but also to the economic health of national health care systems," said Duncan R. Ross, President and CEO of AtCor.

The findings of this new study further confirm the results of the CAFE and Strong Heart studies, both of which showed that individuals with elevated central pressure were at a significantly higher risk of cardiovascular events such as heart attack, stroke and kidney disease. In both studies, elevated central pressure in patients could not be predicted by conventional brachial blood pressure measurement.

The results have been published in the June issue of the American Heart Association's journal Hypertension in a study titled "Central Pressure: Variability and Impact of Cardiovascular Risk Factors".
