ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the influence of alcohol on the cardiovascular response to isometric exercise in normal subjects. The autonomic reflex induced by isometric exercise results in an increase in heart rate and systolic and diastolic blood pressures. Acute alcohol ingestion by normal humans is reported to have few or no demonstrated adverse cardiac effects, however, alcohol is known to alter several important autonomic cardiovascular reflexes. Both isometric exercise and alcohol consumption are common activities and likely to occur together. After being fully informed of the nature of the study, 10 healthy men volunteered, and a written consent was obtained from each. Alcohol consumption by any in the group was rare. The subjects then drank 180 cc of chilled vodka over a period of 5-15 minutes. Blood alcohol determinations and recordings of blood pressure and pulse rate before and after IHG were done. Five additional healthy subjects who drank no alcohol performed IHG in a similar manner. The highest levels of ethanol were measured at 60 minutes after alcohol in 7 subjects and at 30 minutes in 3 subjects.

    Caffeine (CAF) exerts a pressor effect both at rest and during exercise, as blood pressure is higher than with placebo. The effect of acute CAF ingestion combined with intense resistance training on cardiovascular function is unknown, however. The primary aim of the study was to examine changes...

    Individuals who respond with a rise of 15 mmHg or more in their systolic and/or diastolic blood pressure to a cold pressor test are called blood pressure hyperreactors. We examined whether hyperreactors (n = 8) showed greater reactivity of arterial stiffness, i.e., pulse wave velocity (PWV) and...

Blood pressure refers to the result of the interaction of the cardiac output and the total peripheral resistance, while the cardiac output is the result of the stroke volume and heart rate.

    There is some evidence to suggest isometric training can reduce resting blood pressure in a shorter period than the typical 8 weeks, reported most commonly. The purpose of the present study was to explore whether 4 weeks of bilateral-leg isometric training can reduce resting blood pressure, and...

    Acute cardiovascular reaction to bout of static exercise (isometric muscular contraction) includes raise of heart rate, blood pressure and total peripheral resistance. Adaptation to isometric exercise of small muscle groups seems to result in (at least) temporary reduced cardiovascular risk....
