Heart Rate Variability in Orthostatic Hypertension

The study will examine a condition known as orthostatic hypertension, which is a sudden increase in blood pressure when a person stands up. Orthostatic hypertension is a recognized risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. This project will also examine the differences in blood pressure responses to standing between African Americans and other races, since African Americans are more likely to develop high blood pressure than other races.

If you are eligible, you will be asked to complete the following activities in a single visit: • Lie down for 10 minutes while the team completes an electrocardiogram (EKG) and blood pressure measurements • Stand up for 10 minutes while the team continues the EKG and blood pressure measurements
