About this book

This fascinating volume applies the concept of chronomics to the medical treatment of hypertension. It starts with the recent updates on chronomics, the analytic techniques, and their application to community-based assessments. The authors advocate the use of 7-day/24-h records of blood pressure, which is effective for finding masked hypertension, masked morning surge, and other rhythm abnormalities. Most organisms, from cyanobacteria to mammals, are known to use the circadian mechanism. However, our body systems also demonstrate circaseptan (roughly weekly), circannual (roughly yearly), and even longer rhythms. Chronomics monitors the physiological data and then analyzes the superimposed rhythms, isolating the cycles mathematically to determine how organisms and their environment interact. It is the study of interactions among time structures (chronomes) in and around us.

About the authors

Dr. Kuniaki Otsuka obtained PhD degree in Division of Medicine, Kyusyu University Graduate School, Japan in 1981.He started his carrier as an assistant Professor at Kyusyu University in 1973.He moved to Tokyo woman’s medical School as a lecturer in 1987 and promoted to full Professor in 1998. He started his research on Chronobiology in 1987, supervised by Dr. Halberg at Minnesota University. He is one of the top researcher in this field, as he received Halberg Prize at 3rd International Workshop on Circadian Rhythms&Clinical Chrono therapy in 2002 and he organized 2nd World Congress of Chronobiology as an president in 2007.
