2013 ESH/ESC guidelines for the management of arterial hypertension: the Task Force for the Management of Arterial Hypertension of the European Society of Hypertension (ESH) and of the European…
A Randomized Controlled Trial of Aliskiren in the Prevention of Major Cardiovascular Events in Elderly People and the Effect of Potentially Modifiable Risk Factors associated with Myocardial Infarction is presented.
European Society of Hypertension recommendations for conventional, ambulatory and home blood pressure measurement
The accuracy of the conventional Riva-Rocci/Korotkoff technique of blood pressure measurement has been questioned and efforts have been made to improve the technique with automated devices.
European Society of Hypertension position paper on ambulatory blood pressure monitoring.
The historical background, the advantages and limitations of ABPM, the threshold levels for practice, and the cost-effectiveness of the technique are considered, while the role ofABPM in research circumstances, such as pharmacological trials and in the prediction of outcome in epidemiological studies is examined.
How to measure baroreflex sensitivity: from the cardiovascular laboratory to daily life
A review of the methods most widely used to assess baroreflex function in humans, in the laboratory and in daily life finds that techniques based on computer analysis of spontaneous blood pressure and heart rate fluctuations allow spontaneous barore Flex sensitivity to be assessed in real life conditions.
Spectral analysis of blood pressure and heart rate variability in evaluating cardiovascular regulation. A critical appraisal.
Evidence is given that multivariate models--which allow evaluation of the interactions between changes in blood pressure, heart rate, and other biological signals in the time or frequency domains--offer a more comprehensive approach to the assessment of cardiovascular regulation than that represented by the separate analysis of fluctuations inBlood pressure or heart rate only.
Predicting cardiovascular risk using conventional vs ambulatory blood pressure in older patients with systolic hypertension.
In untreated older patients with isolated Systolic Hypertension in Europe, ambulatory systolic BP was a significant predictor of cardiovascular risk over and above conventional BP.

A survey of blood pressure measuring devices for which there is published evidence of independent validation using the BHS and AAMI protocols found that only a fraction of the many devices available have been surveyed.
Normal weight obesity: a risk factor for cardiometabolic dysregulation and cardiovascular mortality.
Normal weight obesity, defined as the combination of normal BMI and high BF content, is associated with a high prevalence of cardiometabolic dysregulation, metabolic syndrome, and CV risk factors and in women, NWO is independently associated with increased risk for CV mortality.
