The researchers found that daily netarsudil was noninferior to twice-daily timolol, with a mean treated IOP range from 16.3 to 17.9 mm Hg for netarsudil and 16.7 to 17.6 mm Hg for timolol (mean reductions from baseline of 3.9 to 4.7 mm Hg and 3.8 to 5.2 mm Hg, respectively).
A statistically significant reduction in SBP occurred in the spironolactone group compared with the placebo group (weighted mean difference [WMD] = -16.7 mm Hg; 95% confidence interval [CI], -27.5 to -5.8 mm Hg).
Among participants with baseline SBP at or above 150 mm Hg, "mean SBP reduction was striking.
Overall, taking a nap during the day was associated with an average 5 mm Hg drop in blood pressure, which researchers said is on par with what would be expected from other known blood pressure-lowering interventions.
If at that point their AOBP was more than 140/90 mm Hg they were bumped up to 500 mg b.i.d.
In the European approach, "the first objective is to treat to less than 140/90 mm Hg. If this is well tolerated, then treat to less than 130/80 mm Hg in most patients," said Dr.
Similarly, average systolic office blood pressure (OBP) in patients in the RDN arm declined 9.4 mm Hg -- a 6.8 mm Hg difference compared with the sham control arm, and the diastolic OBP declined 5.2 mm Hg, a 3.5 mm Hg difference from the sham control arm.

In the male cases, the handgrip induced SBP changes observed at 1 min (138.0 [+ or -] 0.8 mm Hg), 3 min (138.0 [+ or -] 1.34 mm Hg) and 5 min (137.0 [+ or -] 1.45 mm Hg) were not different than the male controls at 1 min (138.0 [+ or -] 1.7 mm Hg), 3 min (139.0 [+ or -] 1.35 mm Hg) and 5 min (140.0 [+ or -] 1.58 mm Hg), respectively (Figures 2 and 3, Table 1).
In the results of the Systolic Blood Pressure Intervention Trial (SPRINT), presented at the 2015 meeting of the American Heart Association, patients who maintained a blood pressure of less than 120 mm Hg had a 25 percent lower risk of heart attack, stroke, heart failure, and cardiovascular death than patients whose blood pressure was merely maintained at 140 mm Hg.
In a systematic review and meta-analysis of 51 studies involving 4,888 patients, researchers found that the use of a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) device was associated with a significant mean systolic blood pressure reduction of 2.5 mm Hg and a mean diastolic reduction of 2- mm Hg, compared with inactive controls.

An individual's three BP readings tended to be about the same: systolic blood pressure readings taken at exam's end were an average of 1.5 mm Hg lower than the initial reading, and diastolic pressure readings were an average of 1 mm Hg higher.
