  5. Toward a causal model of cardiovascular responses to stress and the development of cardiovascular disease.

    Psychosomatic Medicine 65(1):22 (2003) PMID 12554813

    Cardiovascular reactivity is hypothesized to mediate the relationship between stress and cardiovascular disease. We describe three considerations that are crucial for a causal model of cardiovascular responses to stress: the need for laboratory-life generalizability, the role of interactions bet...
  6. Limitations of current validation protocols for home blood pressure monitors for individual patients.

    Blood Pressure Monitoring 7(6):313 (2002) PMID 12488651

    Automatic blood pressure monitoring conducted at home is increasingly used in the diagnosis and management of hypertension. We assessed the adequacy of existing British Hypertension Society (BHS) and Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) validation standards for autom...

  8. What is the white-coat effect and how should it be measured?

    Blood Pressure Monitoring 7(6):293 (2002) PMID 12488648

    The white coat effect is conceived as a measure of the blood pressure response to a clinic visit, but there is no agreement as to exactly how it should be defined. The most widely used definition is the difference between the average clinic and daytime ambulatory blood pressures, but other metho...
