Only two studies have specifi-cally tackled the issue of whether large bloodpressure reactions to brief hand immersion incold water are associated with increased risk forcoronary heart disease. In one, the magnitudeof diastolic reactions to the cold pressor testwas reported to be the most significant singlepredictor of 20 year incident coronary heartdisease in a sample of 279 middle aged men.
