PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

An overlooked QC parameter of hypertension: tissue oxygenation, at basal line and under stress.

Sergio Stagnaro   (2005-01-23 10:03)  Private. Researcher in Biophysical semeiotics. email

A 47-year-long clinical experience with the aid of Biophysical Semeiotics (1, 2) (See HONCode web site 233736, allows me to state that an hypertensive patient shows high QC exclusively in case that his or her tissue oxigenation is in normal values (1-4)and consequently there is not increased free radical level in the diverse biological systems (5-6). In treating hypertension our goal is to provide the normal Microcirculatory Functional Reserve in heart,kidney, retina,and peripheral macrovascular vessel walls.
