ABSTRACT
Patients with essential hypertension were found to haye differing blood pressure response patterns to hospitalization and changes in dietary salt. Serum renin levels were higher in younger patients and patients whose blood pressure fell most during hospitalization and restriction of dietary salt. On the other hand, fixed hypertensives with reduced renin responsiveness are significantly older than the labile groups. A mechanism of evolution of essential hypertension is suggested.

    Saralasin (1-sar-8-ala-angiotensin II), a competitive inhibitor of angiotensin II, was administered to 32 patients with renovascular or essential hypertension before (Day 1) and after (Day 2) they were mildly sodium depleted by furosemide (1 mg/kg body weight). A blood pressure lowering effect...

    Information on hypertension from Chapter 13 of the book "Essentials of Anatomy & Physiology," is presented. It is defined as a resting systemic blood pressure consistently above the normal range. Clinicians consider 125 to 139/85 to 89 millimeters of mercury to be prehypertension. An...

    Systemic arterial compliance was estimated in 31 men, including 15 patients with sustained essential hypertension and 16 normal subjects of the same age. Values were derived from analysis of the monoexponential blood pressure-time curve during diastole, according to a simple viscoelastic model....

    Hypertensive patients with low-baseline plasma renin activity (PRA) are known to respond best to natriuretic drugs, and those with high PRA respond best to renin–angiotensin system (RAS) blockade. However, there has been recent speculation that blood pressure (BP)–lowering...

    Among seventeen hypertensive transplant candidates with end-stage renal disease, we found seven with �volume dependent� hypertension. Their diastolic blood pressures (DBP) ranged from 90 to 95 mm Hg and their peripheral vein renins (PVR) from 1.2 to 2.9 ng/ml/hr. (Normal 0.4 to 1.4...
