  • This study examined 24-hr levels of ambulatory heart rate (HR) and blood pressure (BP) in 2 groups of male veterans: 19 with chronic posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and 17 who never met criteria for PTSD. The relationships between diagnostic status, basal cardiovascular activity, and cardiovascular reactivity to stress were examined. Hierarchical linear modeling analyses revealed that the PTSD group had higher resting HR than the non-PTSD group. Moreover, the PTSD group showed greater BP… CONTINUE READING
