Cause of million physician visits a year. In 2002 hypertension was the listed as the primary cause of death for Americans. Who does it affect (gender/race)?

This system may be over stimulated with hypertension! Potential Mechanisms Underlying Hypertension Hypertension Decreased – Decreased release of NO – Increased reactive oxygen species (ROS) which inactivates NO http://ethesis.helsinki.fi/julkaisut/laa/biola/vk/lassila/index.html What diseases does uncontrolled hypertension lead to? hypertension – Increased afterload → left ventricular hypertrophy → congestive heart failure ↓ Nitric oxide → ↑ Atherosclerosis ↑ ↑ ↑ ↑ Pharmacological Treatments of Hypertension Hypertension β ­blockers α­blockers Ca++ channel blockers Diuretics Ace inhibitors Angiotensin II receptor blockers – – – – – – McArdle, Katch and Katch Modification of lifestyle to treat hypertension hypertension loss Decrease Decrease Increase Recommended treatment for hypertension CCD = Clinical Cardiovascular Disease TOD = Target Organ Disease McArdle, Katch and Katch How much of a reduction is blood pressure is needed to decrease mortality? mortality? A decrease of mmHg in systolic blood pressure deaths from stroke by and heart disease by Effects of chronic aerobic exercise training on hypertension training Both cross­sectional and longitudinal data suggests that chronic aerobic exercise training reduces both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Review of 20 studies by Kokkinos et al. – Average Systolic BP – Average Diastolic BP Example McArdle, Katch and Katch Effects of exercise intensity on hypertension hypertension Studies that have compared the effects of exercise intensities on blood pressure have determined that . – % of max heart rate – METS or 10.5­21.0 ml/kg/min Effects of resistance exercise training on hypertension training Conflicting data. Some data suggests small but significant reductions in BP. However, of data suggests that resistance exercise training is not effective in lowering blood pressure in hypertensive individuals.
