Hypertension is major risk factor for cardiovascular disease as well as stroke. In present era, stress leads to autonomic dysfunction; which act as aggrevating factor for development of hypertension. The present study was carried out in 1st year medical students. To assess the effect of stressors, we have studied change in Mean Blood Pressure (MBP) and Heart Rate (HR) by inducing autonomic stressors by cold pressure test and Valsalva maneuver in young healthy adults as indicator of autonomic dysfunction in hypertensive family as well as non hypertensive family. On the basis of present study the offspring of hypertensive parent may be advocated to change or bring modification in their lifestyles, to prevent or delay hypertension at a later stage in their life.
