Prognostic significance of blood pressure variability on beat-to-beat monitoring after transient ischemic attack and stroke
Background and Purpose: Visit-to-visit and day-to-day BP-variability (BPV) predict an increased risk of cardiovascular events, but only reflect one form of BPV. Beat-tobeat BPV can be rapidly assessed and might also be predictive. Methods: In consecutive patients within 6 weeks of TIA or non-disabling stroke (Oxford Vascular Study), BPV (CV, coefficient of variation) was measured beat-tobeat over 5 minutes (Finometer), day-to-day over 1 week on home monitorin...
