This pioneering book covers the new topic of circadian variation in cardiovascular disease, with a special emphasis on hypertension. New techniques in the self and ambulatory monitoring of blood pressure and heart rate have led to marked improvements in our ability to detect various clinical entities in patients with hypertension and vascular diseases. These techniques and their interpretation are covered in this book. Section I describes the methodology of self and ambulatory blood pressure monitoring in research and clinical practice. Section II describes the advances in the understanding of the pathophysiology of the circadian biology of cardiovascular disorders. This section is of intense importance since it has been shown that ambulatory blood pressure values are independent predictors of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Of immense importance to clinicians, Section III focuses on the effect of antihypertensive drug therapy on the circadian variation of blood pressure, heart rate, and myocardial ischemia. This book provides a unique and medically-sound approach to the management of patients with hypertension and vascular disease.
