The prognostic significance of the cold pressor test in hypertension remains a matter of controversy. Following determination at an initial screening session, blood pressure (BP) was recorded at baseline rest and in reaction to a cold pressor test. Follow-up screening BP was determined 5 years later. The effective sample was 1039 men, with an average age of 56.6 years at initial screening. Step-wise multiple regression indicated that BP reactions to the cold pressor test provided minimal… Expand
