Table 3 BPV in patients MACE and hypertension and patients with MACE without hypertension *

From: The association between 24-h blood pressure variability and major adverse cardiac events (MACE) in hospitalized patients with acute myocardial infarction: a retrospective cohort study

BPV Hypertension P value
Yes (n = 18) No (n = 1)
SD SBP, Median (Range) 13.13 (10.89–15.97) 8.14 0.013
SD DBP, Median (Range) 7.75 (6.38–11.19) 6.65 0.315
ARV SBP, Median (Range) 9.89 (6.76–13.33) 5.91 0.035
ARV DBP, Median (Range) 7.00 (5.68–9.59) 6.35 0.400
  1. *Mann-Withney test
  2. SD-SBP = standard deviation of systolic blood pressure; SD-DBP = standard deviation of diastolic blood pressure
  3. ARV-SBP = average real variability of Systolic blood pressure; ARV-DBP = average real variability diastolic blood pressure
  4. BPV = blood pressure variability; MACE = major adverse cardiac events
  5. Bold font mean a difference was statistically significant (p < 0.05)
