The diagnosis health education and control of hypertensive patients in the murcia region spain

, : The diagnosis health education and control of hypertensive patients in the murcia region spain. Medicina Clinica 83(3): 101-105

A questionnaire-study was done on 1006 subjects, selected according to areas, rural or urban residence, age, sex and working activity. Hypertensive patients (262) are found (26%), 33.5% of whom were unaware of their condition. This lack of awareness is more frequent in young subjects (P < 0.0005), in men (P < 0.01), in subjects living in the rural areas (P < 0.05); social status having no influence (P < 0.10). Of the hypertensive subjects who are aware of this condition, 76.4% regularly have their BP [blood pressure] checked, usually by a doctor (59.4%) and in the sitting position (84.2%). Only 18.3% were submitted to any other additional exploration; preferably the older ones and only 6.8% have had > 3 tests. Of hypertensives, 32.8% know that hypertension cannot be cured but can be controlled, but 62.2% of them know about its complications.

Blood viscosity, a blood flow volume determinant, is one of the primary indicators of the state of pregnancy. The viscosity of peripheral veins was measured using a cone-plate viscometer (shear rate 150 s-1, 375 s-1) and the results were utilized...

This paper describes the effects of radiation, probably ultraviolet radiation (UVR), on the human genome at peaks of solar cycles. This phenomenon was not previously reported because peak cycle lifespan had not been separated from non-peak lifespa...

Twenty healthy ostriches (ten cocks and ten hens), and twenty birds with tibiotarsal rotation (nine cocks and 11 hens) (14 months old) were isolated, hooded and weighed. A run (50 in x 2.5 in) was divided into sections marked 5 in, 10 in, 15 in a...
