24-hour Blood Pressure Patterns Post-Ischaemic Stroke Predict Patient Outcomes

4 Apr 2024 • A recent investigation delving into blood pressure (BP) management following acute ischaemic stroke, comprising 4069 patients across 26 hospitals, revealed distinctive BP trajectories within 24 hours post-stroke onset.

These trajectories, ranging from persistently high to moderate-low levels, were associated with varying risks of adverse outcomes at 3-month follow-up.

Patients with persistently high BP at 180 mm Hg within 24 hours of ischaemic stroke onset had the highest risk, while those maintaining stable BP at a moderate-low level (150 mm Hg) or even a low level (137 mm Hg) had more favourable outcomes.
