Résumé
We frequently see patients whose symptoms are aggravated by the change of weather. Some people can predict the change of weather by their feeling or symptoms, such as headache, articular pains and dizziness. We can vaguely recognize the association between weather and physical condition but little scientific attention has been paid to this and there insufficient proof about this. The association was examined between 14 consecutive day-to-day fluctuations of atmospheric pressure (AP) and systolic blood pressure (SBP) in community-dwelling individuals in consideration of time lag or precedence of the response of SBP to AP within a few days. The subjects were 406 community -dwelling residents (178 men and 228 women) aged 15 years or older, mean (SD) age 64.8 (14.4) years. Many subjects (42.1%) showed a significant positive (21.7%, R = 0.52 ∼ 0.88, P < 0.05) or negative (20.4%, R = -0.52 - -0.86, P< 0.05) correlation between AP and SBP. This result showed a close association between the day-to-day fluctuations of AP and BP in consideration of the varying responsiveness of BP to AP, i.e. there was a time lag and precedence of response of BP over AP, which was probably due to the high sensitivity of BP to initial changes in AP. Further investigations are needed on the effects of AP on the human autonomic nervous system and also on the association between AP and the human physiological or pathological condition.
