1. Regardless of cardiovascular disease history and baseline blood pressure, a 5 mmHg reduction in systolic blood pressure reduced relative risk of major cardiovascular events by 10%. 2. These findings support considering antihypertensive medications for patients with increased cardiovascular risk, even those who are normotensive at baseline.  Evidence Rating Level: 1...
1. Greater variability in visit-to-visit systolic and diastolic blood pressure readings in early adulthood is associated with adverse myocardial structure changes and impaired systolic and diastolic function. Evidence Rating: 2 (Good) Blood pressure (BP) control remains one of the most important modifiable risk factors for cardiovascular health. Variability in BP measurements are...
