UNLABELLED The study was conducted to determine age and sex stratified normal values for 24-h ambulatory blood pressure. A sample of 352 healthy subjects (all white) were randomly selected from the community register and stratified by sex and age groups in decades from 20 to 79 years of age. Persons with a history of hypertension, cerebral apoplexy,(More)
This study was designed to compare the cardiac mass and geometry in white coat hypertensive patients and established hypertensive patients through the prospective comparison of office blood pressure, daytime ambulatory blood pressure, and echocardiographically determined left ventricular mass and cardiac geometry in consecutive patients. We studied 143(More)
This study shows the association between smoking and both office and ambulatory blood pressure. By means of stratification, a uniform number of subjects of both sexes and spanning 6 decades (aged 20 to 79 years) were recruited randomly from the local community register. A total of 352 subjects participated, including 161 smokers. Smokers (both sexes and all(More)
The study was conducted to estimate the frequency of white coat hypertension, ie, hypertension when in contact with the doctor only, in patients with newly diagnosed hypertension. We studied 159 consecutive patients (median age 47 years, 86 women) referred from primary health care to a hypertension clinic. For all patients, their general practitioner had(More)
This investigation examined the effect of torso rotational strength on angular hip (AHV), angular shoulder (ASV), linear bat-end (BEV), and hand velocities (HV) and 3 repetition maximum (RM) torso rotational and sequential hip-torso-arm rotational strength (medicine ball hitter's throw) in high school baseball players (age 15.4 +/- 1.2 y). Participants were(More)
The purpose of this article was to investigate the relation between anthropometric and physiological variables to linear bat swing velocity (BV) of 2 groups of high-school baseball players before and after completing a 12-week periodized resistance exercise program. Participants were randomly assigned to 1 of 2 training groups using a stratified sampling(More)
This study examined the effects of 12 weeks of wrist and forearm training on linear bat-end velocity (BV), center of percussion velocity (CV), hand velocity (HV), and time to ball contact of high school baseball players. Forty-three baseball players were randomly assigned by a stratified sampling technique to 1 of 2 training groups. Group 1 (n = 23) and(More)
Takeda TM 2420 is an automatic ambulant device for measuring blood pressure which functions by auscultation of the Korokoff sounds. During static conditions, the apparatus was investigated by means of a double stetoscope and a connecting branch with the Hawksley random zero manometer. Where 69 persons were concerned (ages 13-89 years, systolic blood(More)
