Post-traumatic stress disorder and alterations in ambulatory blood pressure, daily stress load, and acute pressor response to mental stress.

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

Patients with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. The physiological underpinnings of this increased risk are poorly understood but may involve alterations in blood pressure regulation related to aberrant cardiovascular responses to stress and increased stress-load. This study is investigating indices of daily stress-load, ambulatory blood pressure, and acute pressor responses to mental stress in patients with PTSD and control subjects.
