Blood Pressure clinical trials at UCSF

3 in progress, 2 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Data Collection of Arterial Line Waveform and BP Values

    open to eligible people ages 18-80

    Collect continuous systolic and diastolic blood pressure values and waveforms as recorded by an arterial line catheter and by non-invasive blood pressure (NIBP) and to collect Photoplethysmogram Pulse Oximetry (PPG) waveform in order to optimize the Sensifree algorithm.

  • Pilot to Examine Risk and Feasibility of Remote Management of BP From CKD Through ESRD

    open to eligible people ages 16 years and up

    The transition from chronic kidney disease (CKD) to end-stage renal disease ESRD is a vulnerable and challenging period of time for patients and providers. Suboptimal control of blood pressure is known to be common in patients with the advanced stages of CKD, and may contribute to their elevated risk of progression to ESRD, cardiovascular morbidity, and mortality. This proposal is a pilot randomized controlled trial designed to test whether intensive blood pressure lowering is feasible and safe in patients with advanced CKD as they transition to ESRD.

  • ACEi ARB Withdrawal in CKD Patients

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The American Heart Association guidelines for high blood pressure (BP) currently recommend using angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEi) or angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) as first-line therapy for patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) stage 3 or above. However, the prevalence of ACEi and ARB use in patients with CKD stage 4 or 5 is low, and current BP guidelines acknowledge the lack of solid evidence to support the benefit of using these agents in advanced CKD.This study seeks to conduct a pilot trial to determine the safety and feasibility of ACEi and/or ARB continuation (intervention) versus withdrawal (control) in patients with advanced CKD.
