What is already known on this topic?
Hypertension is a major public health concern in China, and hypertensive patients have elevated heart rates (HR), which can synergize with higher bloodpressure to promote adverse health outcomes.
What is added by this report?
The risk of increased HR was statistically significant but relatively lower in subjects with treated and controlled hypertension. This lower impact might be modified by sex, marital status, smoking, and physical activity.
What are the implications for public health practice?To mitigate the substantial burden of increased HR among hypertensive patients, improving blood pressure control and promoting healthy lifestyles should beprioritized.
