OBJECTIVES Systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) frequently display a linear relationship characterized by the systolic-versus-diastolic slope ('Slope') or the 'ambulatory arterial stiffness index' [AASI = 1 - (diastolic-versus-systolic Slope)] and the correlation coefficient r. We evaluated the effect of using symmetric regression on the AASI and its dependence on clinical characteristics using 24-h ambulatory monitoring. METHODS Ambulatory monitoring data of 140… CONTINUE READING
