Prevalence of hypertension among university students

 

Abstract: To determine the prevalence of hypertension among a sample of university students and determine the predisposing factors, the risk factors and outcome variables in the selected sample. Design: The study is cross-sectional prevalence study. Setting: Freshmen and finalists medical students from Khartoum College of Medicine. Manshia, Khartoum. Patients and Methods: Casual Blood pressure was recorded from freshman and finalist students. Blood pressure readings were recorded between 9 AM– 12 PM. All collected data was entered into SPSS data sheet. The following parameters were recorded: Age, sex, academic year, smoking, family history of hypertension stroke or diabetes, history of headache, salt intake, systolic and diastolic BP and body mass index. Results: The prevalence of hypertension (BP>140/90) among the group of 15-30 years old was found to be 2%. High diastolic BP (>89mmHg) was found in 15% of the sample and pre-hypertension was prevalent in 39%. The study has shown that smoking, family history of hypertension, obesity, university academic year, salt excess and lack of physical exercise are predictors of hypertension. There is significant association between high diastolic BP, BMI and academic year (more in finalist). Pearson’s Chi Square was 0.022 and 0.002, respectively. This indicates that academic year and BMI are significant predictors of hypertension in this sample of young university students. Conclusion: The overall prevalence of Hypertension in this sample of university students was 2%. High diastolic pressure (>89 mmHg) was found in 15% of the sample. An association between hypertension and BMI was found to be significant and that finalists have significantly higher BP than freshmen.

CASE REPORTS

 

Thrombus in transit across patent foramen ovale in sinus rhythm in the absence of structural heart disease and coagulation abnormalities.

 

Abstract: A young patient, with no significant past medical history, presented with rapidly progressive breathlessness and syncope. Echocardiography revealed bilateral atrial masses and a massively dilated right ventricle (RV). Computed Tomography Pulmonary Angiogram (CTPA) confirmed sub-massive pulmonary embolism. Transoesophageal echocardiogram showed thrombus in transit across a patent foramen ovale (PFO). Treatment of pulmonary embolism with anticoagulation led to resolution of the pressure overload on the RV and both atrial masses, confirming the diagnosis of thrombus in transit. This is a rare diagnosis in patients with sinus rhythm in the absence of structural heart disease and coagulation abnormalities.

Apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy; the good, the bad or the ugly

 

Abstract : A middle age male presented with dyspnea on exertion, chest pain and electrocardiogram (ECG) revealing inferior and anterior deep T wave inversion (TWI). He has a long standing history of hypertension. His coronary angiography revealed normal coronaries. Echocardiography (Echo) was diagnostic of apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (APHCM), a diagnosis which was further confirmed on cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR).
