Re: Rheos Hypertension Pivotal Trial
The Rheos System seems like it could be a significant medical breakthrough in the treatment of High Blood Pressure, Heart Failure, and other Immune/Neurohormonal System diseases.
It relaxes the blood vessels, while at the same time, having an inhibiting effect on the NeuroHormonals.
During a two year study, Median Systolic BP was reduced down 35 points ( ± 8 ) from 191 ( ± 32 ); and Median Diastolic BP was reduced down 24 points ( ± 6 ) from 116 ( ± 22 ).
After one-year, data also showed improved heart structure and function.
At first I was somewhat skeptical seeing that, after two years, there was no reduction in the number of blood pressure medications taken; and the fact that the median blood pressure was still very high. But I became a lot more interested after looking at the results and the inhibiting effect on the NeuroHormonals.
Very interesting and novel medical approach! I wonder if Rheos would be as effective as Coreg? Hmmmm!? Perhaps a combination of the two? Coreg is such a wonderful, miraculous medication. I LOVE Coreg! Need to do a little more research on the Rheos device.
