Abstract

This pilot study evaluated the efficacy of a Hypertension Prevention Program (HPP) administered through a mobile application platform with human coaching (app) on reduction in blood pressure and weight in 50 adults with prehypertension or hypertension. Participants were recruited into a 24-week mobile application intervention to administer the HPP between January 2016 and July 2016. Dietary elements of the programme were based on the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension. The programme included in-app human coaching with bi-weekly phone calls, meal logging, blood pressure tracking and educational material. Main outcome variables included change in systolic and diastolic blood pressure, hypertension category, and weight loss. Data were analysed between October 2016 and December 2016. The HPP yielded overall improvements in weight (-3.04±4.04 kg, P=<0.001), diastolic blood pressure (-5.06±11.89 mm Hg, P=0.004), and hypertension category (-0.48±0.74 mm Hg, P=<0.001). Sustained engagement of 80% resulted in significant reductions in systolic blood pressure (-7.75±12.56, P=<0.001) and weight (-3.73±4.01 kg, P<0.001) for programme completers, contributing to hypertension category change (-0.58±0.64 mm Hg, P<0.001). Mobile delivery of a lifestyle intervention for hypertension prevention showed short-term potential to reduce risk of hypertension, supporting the need for longer studies to investigate the use of mHealth lifestyle modification to reduce the risk of hypertension, a public health priority.Journal of Human Hypertension advance online publication, 3 October 2017; doi:10.1038/jhh.2017.69.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 464. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 06 May 2019.
All research outputs
#32,964
of 18,197,695 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Human Hypertension
#2
of 1,193 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#971
of 288,624 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Human Hypertension
#1
of 15 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 18,197,695 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 99th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,193 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 8.0. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 99% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 288,624 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 99% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 15 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 99% of its contemporaries.
