Blood pressure in a Scottish island community.

PMID:  5359919     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A survey of mean blood pressure levels in age-and-sex-matched samples of the population of the island of Tiree appears to support the local belief that blood pressure is higher on the island than on the mainland. This conclusion may be related to the observation of a greater mean width of the heart, measured radiologically, in the island population compared with the mainland population. The greater mean body weight observed in the island compared with the mainland may be a factor. Blood pressure in men between the ages of 40 and 59 years is higher in Tiree than in selected samples in England and America.
