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)
In this study we examined neonatal and early childhood outcomes after intrauterine exposure to beta-sympathomimetic agents on infants with birth weights less than or equal to 1500 gm. The hospital courses and anthropomorphic, developmental, and neurologic development of 201 infants exposed to one or more beta-sympathomimetic agents (isoxsuprine, 33;(More)
