Abstract

Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring of 180 clinically healthy adults of both genders is used to investigate and compare ultradian aspects of systolic and diastolic blood pressure as a function of age. Three age categories are considered: 20-40, 40-60, and over 60 years of age. Results from least-squares spectra of each data series are further examined by analysis of variance. Gender and age effects are found to characterize the waveform of human blood pressure. These effects can be quantified by spectral analysis and may represent gauges of aging.
