Our primary aim in the present study was to investigate the association between blood pressure measured in the laboratory and in the ambulatory state in a group of middle-aged borderline hypertensive men and age-matched normotensive control subjects. In addition, we examined the relation between stress-induced blood pressure measurements and left ventricular mass. Blood pressure and heart rate were measured noninvasively during a standardized laboratory stress protocol and four times per hour… CONTINUE READING
