|Title:||Blood pressure management - Isometric handgrip exercise reduces hypertension||Contributor(s):||Carlson, Debra (author); Inder, Jodie (author); McFarlane, James R (author) ; Dieberg, Gudrun (author) ; Smart, Neil (author)||Publication Date:||2016||DOI:||10.1161/HYP.0000000000000042||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/19102||Abstract:||Background: Hypertension is responsible for 45% of cardiovascular deaths due to heart disease and 51% due to stroke worldwide (WHO). According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics 31.6% of the Australian population had hypertension in 2011/2012. Our recent meta-analysis indicates that isometric exercise may be an effective treatment for those unable to conduct the recommended minimum 30 minutes per day of moderate aerobic exercise. The anti-hypertensive effect threshold of isometric handgrip training has not been established. Moreover, the usual handgrip intensity of 30% maximum voluntary contraction (MVC) used in most studies is initially challenging for some people. Aims: To investigate the isometric handgrip intensity threshold for an anti-hypertensive effect, and the possibility of using a 5% MVC group as either a low intensity effect group or a true working control.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||37th Annual Scientific Meeting of the High Blood Pressure Research Council of Australia (HBPRCA), Melbourne, Australia, 2nd - 4th December, 2015||Conference Details:||37th Annual Scientific Meeting of the High Blood Pressure Research Council of Australia (HBPRCA), Melbourne, Australia, 2nd - 4th December, 2015||Source of Publication:||Abstracts From the 37th Annual Scientific Meeting of the High Blood Pressure Research Council of Australia, p. e9-e9||Publisher:||Lippincott Williams & Wilkins||Place of Publication:||United States of America||ISSN:||0194-911X||Field of Research (FOR):||110201 Cardiology (incl.
