Abstract

Despite the role of anxiety, depression and hostility in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular diseases, their impact on two significant cardiovascular risk factors, nocturnal dipping and morning surge in blood pressure (MSBP), are largely ignored and primarily studied in clinical populations. This study examined the effects of dipping and psychological traits on MSBP in healthy people. Nocturnal dipping and MSBP were derived from 24-h ambulatory BP obtained in 77 men and 79 women, mean age 32.8 (s.d.: 7.4). Differences in depression, anxiety and hostility were examined by questionnaires. Higher levels of dipping (P
