Abstract

The hypertensive disease is a disease arising from genetic factors, but other factors too contribute to its manifestation. Chronological studies have shown, with regard to the heritability of blood pressure and pulse rate, their circadian characteristics, not only from the point of view of amplitude, but also from the fact, that excessive aplitude of blood pressure is connected with the greater threat of ischemic attacks and the incidence of nephropathies. The study presents a follow-up of the values of blood pressure and pulse rate during a period of four weeks in a family consisting of the parents and their two children. The results of the investigation were evaluated and analysed. The circadian rhythm of the gained values were registered for each individual member of the family. The similarity of the circadian rhythm in all members of the family is shown in the pertinent statistic expressions.
