Prior research by the same group found an association between playing football for a single season and higher blood pressure , which can lead to a condition called left ventricular hypertrophy an enlargement and thickening of the walls of the hearts main pumping chamber. The new study, published in the journal JACC: Cardiovascular Imaging, aimed to validate the previous findings about the development of high blood pressure in college athletes, particularly those who play at the lineman position, Baggish said. And secondly, [to determine] if it makes changes in their heart muscles. Not healthy, adaptive changes, but ones that look like people in mid- to late-life with high blood pressure. To find answers, Baggish and his colleagues analyzed data on 87 first-year college football players who played between 2008 and 2014. Thirty were linemen and 57 played other positions. All of the players were part of the Harvard Athlete Initiative, an ongoing research project that tracks athletes health. Before their first season began, 57 percent of the linemen and 51 percent of non-linemen had pre-hypertension a blood pressure reading greater than a normal reading of 120/80. The top number, systolic pressure, measures the pressure in your arteries when your heart beats; the bottom number, called diastolic pressure, measures the pressure in your arteries between beats. http://rockscarlettreynolds.prosportsmall.com/2016/09/15/updated-tips-on-simple-strategies-for-interviewAfter their first season, 90 percent of the linemen met criteria for pre-hypertension a top number between 120 and 139, and a bottom number between 80 and 89. Only 49 percent of non-linemen had a blood pressure reading above normal. The researchers also analyzed results of a new imaging technique called strain echocardiography which measures how the heart contracts.
