The morning blood pressure surge is related to serum cholesterol

A morning blood pressure surge (MBPS) may be either a mechanism for, or a marker of, increased cardiovascular events. This study has examined factors which may influence the morning surge: age, gender, metabolic factors, sympathetic function, blood pressure and arterial stiffness. Four measures of the MBPS were examined—sleep-trough surge, pre-awake surge, rate of blood pressure rise and a Power function. Subjects underwent ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, glucose tolerance test, central pulse wave velocity, sympathetic autonomic function tests (mental stress and sustained handgrip). MBPS was associated with age, hypertension, blood pressure variability and serum lipids. [Actualizado: 02 de mayo 2013].
