As shown in Fig. 8, the survival rate was significantly lower for people whose initial home pressure was greater than 138 mmHg systolic and 83 mmHg diastolic pressure (79). As also shown in the figure, the consequences of a high clinic pressure were less clear. There was some suggestion from these data of a J-shaped curve, which is a paradoxical increase of mortality at low home blood pressures; the actual numbers were too small to be sure of this, however, and it was not observed for the screening blood pressures.
