DIAGNOSIS, MANAGEMENT AND RISK STRATIFICATION OF HYPERTENSION WITH AMBULATORY BLOOD PRESSURE MONITORING


Authors: Elena Ardeleanu




 

Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) is a reliable  research  and  clinical  tool,  useful  not  only  to patients, right axis deviation in 6; right bundle branch block and S1Q3T3 occurred in 8 patients with severe clinical forms, with impaired right ventricular function, higher angiographic index.

In evolution, ECG abnormalities were improved in 12 p, in an interval of 7-14 days, in 10 p. in 10-45 days, after reducing pulmonary pressure and also after the improvement of right ventricular function.

 

Conclusions:

  1. Although non-specific, electrocardiogram may be a first paraclinical element for suspected pulmonary embolism
  2. The association of electrocardiographic abnormalities with elevated pulmonary pressure, as well as their parallel remission, suggest that ventricular dysfunction, represents the major cause of electrocardiographic changes.
