摘要

Advances in medical engineering have introduced novel tools to monitor changes in hemodynamics in a continuous and non-invasive manner. Blood pressure or cardiovascular reactivity to laboratory- induced mental stresses in individuals with certain traits or diseases differs from that of healthy controls. Therefore, blood pressure reactivity to stress can be used as an index of cardiovascular function. It can also be used in research to elucidate linkages between exaggerated blood pressure response and cardiovascular disease. This paper introduces the stress response and its physiologic mechanisms, blood pressure reactivity, short-term regulation of blood pressure, and blood pressure reactivity assessment methods.
