Effect of Systolic Blood Pressure and Carotid Stiffness on Baroreflex Gain in Elderly Subjects
The journals of gerontology. Series A, Biological sciences and medical sciences
Background. Aging is associated with diminished baroreflex sensitivity (gain), which predisposes elderly people to orthostatic hypotension, syncope, and cardiovascular morbidity. Aging is also associated with systolic blood pressure (SBP) elevation and carotid artery stiffness, which may both affect baroreflex gain. Methods. We examined the relation between SBP, carotid artery stiffness, and baroreflex gain in 34 healthy elderly (71 6 4 years) and 10 healthy young (31 6 3 years) subjects.
