The influence of age and severity of hypertension on the blood pressure response to isometric handgrip exercise (IHG) was studied in essential hypertensive patients (n = 122). The change in blood pressure during IHG in elderly patients with isolated systolic hypertension (ISH) (n = 12) was also studied. Left ventricular hypertrophy due to hypertension was used as an index of the severity of hypertension. The change in systolic blood pressure (SBP) during IHG was markedly greater in essential hypertensives than in normotensive subjects (n = 36). Among hypertensive patients, the change in SBP increased with increasing severity of hypertension. This change in SBP was not influenced by age. The change in SBP during IHG in patients with ISH was significantly smaller than that in essential hypertensive patients and was similar to that in normotensive subjects in the elderly. These results demonstrate that age does not affect the increased blood pressure response to IHG in essential hypertensive patients but the greater the severity of hypertension, the greater the increase in SBP during IHG. Elderly patients with ISH do not have an enhanced blood pressure response to IHG.
