The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of 12 weeks aerobic exercise in elder hypertension patients on pulse pressure and heart rate variability.
The subjects of this study consisted of elder hypertension patients(n=15). Subjects were preformed on a bicycle and treadmill walking at HRmax 60%-70% of exercise intensity for 40 minutes. Exercise treatment consisted of 5times per week continuing 12weeks. Heart rate variability analysis were measured for SDNN(standard deviation of all normal RR intervals), high frequency(HF), low frequency(LF), and LF/HF with SA-2000P/2000E Medicore.
The systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, and pulse pressure were significantly decreased in comparing with pre exercise, but SDNN and HF were significantly increased than pre-exercise. LF and LF/HF were significantly decreased after 12weeks exercise treatment than pre-exercise.
Aerobic exercise has a positive effects on pulse pressure regulation and an automatic nerve system function in elder hypertension patients.
