Blood pressure change and antihypertensive treatment in old and very old people: evidence of age, sex and cohort effects

EditorialPor: L Molander y H Lövheim.  Journal of Human Hypertension (2013) 27, 197–203.

The epidemiology of blood pressure in very old age has not been thoroughly studied. The objective of this study was to study blood pressure changes throughout old age and changes in blood pressure and antihypertensive drug use from 1981 to 2005. The study includes 1133 blood pressure measurements from two studies carried out in Umeå, Sweden. The U70 study (1981–1990) included individuals aged 70–88 and the Umeå 85+/GERDA study (2000–2005) covered people aged 85, 90 or greater than or equal to 95 years. In these analyses of two population-based studies of old and very old people spanning the years 1981 to 2005, decreasing mean blood pressure was found for higher age in both cross-sectional and longitudinal analyses.
