Abstract:
The Blood Pressure Unit was founded in 1978 in the Charitable Infirmary, Jervis Street, with support provided by the Charitable Infirmary and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. From the outset the Unit has concentrated on research into the pharmacology of blood pressure lowering drugs, particularly in the elderly, and on the development of blood pressure measuring techniques, especially techniques of ambulatory blood pressure measurement. To-date some 400 publications on these research areas have been produced by the Unit. In 1996 the Blood Pressure Unit continued its research interests, publishing 17 scientific papers, 6 chapters in books, 4 letters in journals, and 14 papers of general educational and cultural interest. The Unit enters 1997 with 10 papers in press and some 25 research projects underway. As 1996 was the occasion of the centenary of the introduction of clinical sphygmomanometry by Scipione RivaRocci in 1896, the Unit was to the fore in celebrating the event by publishing 6 original papers relating to the history of blood pressure measurement, hosting and chairing an international satellite meeting in Dublin on the occasion of the 16th Scientific Meeting of the International Society of Hypertension in Glasgow entitled A centenary tribute to conventional blood pressure measurement: whither blood pressure measurement in the next century? and mounting a major photographic exhibition in Glasgow and later at the British Hypertension Society Scientific Meeting in Cambridge entitled Scipione Riva-Rocci 1896-1996. A centenary tribute.
