Special Issue (Ongoing): Psychological factors and hypertension

Guest Editors: Inviting

Hypertension is a risk factor for various diseases such as stroke, myocardial infarction, heart failure, and chronic kidney disease, making it the leading cause of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. It has caused disability and high mortality worldwide, consuming significant medical and social resources and resulting in a heavy burden on families and society.

The relationship between psychology and hypertension is complex and bidirectional. Psychological factors such as stress, anxiety, and depression can contribute to the development of hypertension. While hypertension can have psychological consequences, leading to cognitive decline, memory impairments, and an increased risk of developing depression and anxiety.

Psychological interventions, such as stress management techniques, relaxation therapy, and cognitive-behavioral therapy, can be effective in managing hypertension. Mindfulness-based stress reduction and biofeedback have been shown to reduce blood pressure in individuals with hypertension.

This SI aims to explore the mechanism and treatment of hypertension, especially in relation to psychological factors, and to provide guidance for clinical management.
