The importance of resting heart rate in predicting the development of hypertension and cardiovascular morbidity and mortality has been demonstrated in a large number of studies. The relationship between high heart rate and cardiovascular mortality held true in studies performed in hypertensive participants. In most epidemiologic studies, the predictive power of resting heart rate for all-cause mortality was equal to or even greater than that of total cholesterol, smoking, or systolic blood pressure. Data obtained with ambulatory or home measurement did not show any advantage of heart rate measured out of the office over clinic heart rate, but the available evidence is still limited and more research is needed.
