Human blood pressure determination by sphygmomanometry.
This research presents a probabilistic procedure for human blood pressure determination by sphygmomanometry and shows clear trends in prognosis for high blood pressure in smokers and those with a history of heart disease. Expand
The prognostic value of ambulatory blood pressures.
It is concluded that ABP was an important determinant of clinical outcome among patients with essential hypertension whose condition had been initially evaluated with both ambulatory BP (ABP) and office BP measurements. Expand
Prognostic value of ambulatory blood pressure measurements: further analyses.
In both groups, with and without a prior cardiovascular event, women, younger patients and those with lower residual ambulatory systolic blood pressure tended to have longer periods of survival without new cardiovascular events. Expand

Pathophysiology of deoxycorticosterone-secreting adrenal tumors.
The dissociation of 17-deoxysteroids from cortisol in normal subjects given either dexamethasone or DOC acetate provides additional evidence for such a factor. Expand
Renal vascular hypertension, further experiences.
The need for operative management depends not only on the technical operability of the arterial lesion but also on the clinical condition and age of the patient, the severity and controllable of the hypertension, the presence of renal impairment, and the likelihood of “curing” the hypertension. Expand
The value of portably recorded blood pressures in the initiation of treatment of moderate hypertension.
Patient and doctor together must decide what burden of side effects of hypotensive therapy is tolerable, and decisions will become rational only when the probability of vascular involvement can be accurately assessed in a given patient. Expand
Blood pressure variability and its implications for antihypertensive therapy.
Although it is clear that antihypertensive treatment is beneficial in reducing stroke morbidity and mortality, the results of the major outcome studies show less impact on coronary heart disease.Expand
