A study of comparative blood pressure measures in predicting risk of coronary heart disease

R RosenmanR J Brand


The Western Collaborative Group Study is a prospective study of 3,154 employed men, aged 39-59 years. Coronary heart disease (CHD) occurred in 257 subjects during 8.5 years of follow-up. The multiple logistic risk model was used to assess the comparative strength of systolic, diastolic, mean arterial and pulse pressure for the prediction of CHD in two age decades after adjustment for age, serum cholesterol, cigarette smoking, behavior pattern and weight. The risk of CHD was more strongly associated with the systolic than the diastolic pressure. The general practice of assessing the importance of blood pressure based only on the diastolic component should be reassessed.
