Andizhan State Medical Institute, Andizhan, Uzbekistan
The group with initially high cardiovascular risk are HIV−infected. However, there is still no consensus on which clinical factors are predictors of cardiovascular disease. To study the influence of professional risk factors on high blood pressure epidemiological study of the population of the Ferghana Valley was performed, during which a representative sample of 341 HIV−infected patients was investigated. The examination included a survey tool, biochemical and immunological methods. The data on the influence of risk factors on HIV−positive patients with prehypertension, hypertension, high blood pressure were obtained. It was revealed that the most significant risk factors of development of high blood pressure in the examined group of patients were professional (hard work) and social gradient (education, marriage, religion, ethnic status), while gender (male), age, family history are less important.
Key words: arterial pressure, HIV infection, occupational risk factors, non−corrected risk factors.
