Effectiveness of aquatic exercise on reduction B-type natriuretic peptide values in postmenopausal hypertensive women: a randomized clinical trial

Abstract

To compare the responses of aquatic exercise with dry land training and control inactive group on B-type natriuretic peptide and plasma renin activity levels in postmenopausal hypertensive women. Forty postmenopausal hypertensive women were randomly assigned to 3 groups: water group, dry land group and a non-intervention control group. The exercises… (More)
