“The key takeaway from this study is that, for young and middle-aged women, stroke volume was the main determinant of blood pressure, while, in men, vascular resistance was the main determinant of blood pressure,” Catriona Syme, PhD, postdoctoral fellow at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, said in a press release.
