The value of ambulatory systolic blood pressure as a predictor of the development of cardiovascular complications was investigated in a sample of 761 hypertensive patients who had undergone ambulatory blood pressure monitoring and who were followed for an average of 5.5 years. Of the 695 patients without prior cardiovascular events at entry into the study,(More)
The clinical course of 459 treated hypertensive patients who wore the Remler M-2000 patient-activated, semi-automatic, portable blood pressure recorder was reviewed in order to determine whether the average awake ambulatory blood pressure was better able than office blood pressure and standard risk prognosticators to predict the development of(More)
Obstetric complications recorded prospectively were assessed retrospectively in 150 women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and 305 control subjects matched for age, parity, and ethnicity. Intensive diet therapy and self-monitoring of capillary blood glucose were used to obtain postprandial euglycemia; 22% of GDM subjects required insulin. GDM and(More)
