BACKGROUND Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors are used widely in the treatment of patients with hypertension. However, their efficacy in hypertensive blacks when compared with other antihypertensive agents is not well established. METHODS We performed a cohort study of patients using data from a clinical data warehouse of 434,646 patients from New(More)
We studied 63 randomly selected third-year students who split their 10-week medicine clerkship between ambulatory and inpatient components. Compared with their inpatient experience, during the ambulatory rotation, the 63 students felt more like doctors, more responsible for patients, and more able to know and help their patients.

BACKGROUND Clinical trial evidence suggests poorer outcomes in blacks compared with whites when treated with an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor-based regimen, but this has not been evaluated in clinical practice. OBJECTIVES This study evaluated the comparative effectiveness of an ACE inhibitor-based regimen on a composite outcome of(More)
Antihypertensive drug therapy uniformity of efficacy was evaluated in a group of elderly hypertensive subjects with trough-to-peak ratio, after a period of antihypertensive drug therapy with ACE-inhibitor fosinopril. An ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) with evaluation of blood pressure variability assessed by standard deviation (S.D.) and(More)
In a consecutive series of 62 hypertensive elderly subjects, the authors studied the relation of blood pressure circadian variations with echocardiographic parameters of left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy. All the subjects were submitted to an ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) and to B- and M-mode echocardiography. In the elderly hypertensive(More)
