Description:

Nocturnal blood pressure ”

Presented by:

Yuichiro Yano, MD

Visiting Scholar, Department of Preventive Medicine

 

Abstract: Blood pressure (BP) is inherently variable. This variability (BPV) consists of the beat-to beat variation, diurnal BP variation, and between BP measurements separated by minutes, hours, weeks, months, or years. Among these BP indices, the most sensitive predictor for subclinical organ damages and CVD events is “nocturnal BP”. Also, nocturnal BP is associated with aging (frailty).

 

In this presentation, Dr. Yano would like to talk about

1. The clinical implication of circadian blood pressure (BP) variation

2. Nocturnal blood pressure and organ damages

3. Nocturnal BP as a treatment target

 

Lastly, He would like to talk our possible further research using CARDA or MESA database to extend the clinical implication of BP variability (especially, long-term BP variability).

Description:

“Objectively measured relative intensity physical activity and its relationship to cardiovascular disease”

Presented by:

Juned Siddique, PhD

Assistant Professor, Department of Preventive Medicine

 

Abstract: Dr. Siddique will describe an R21 proposal that uses accelerometer data from the CARDIA fitness study to measure relative intensity physical activity and investigate its relationship to cardiovascular disease risk factors.
