Figure 2: Course of systolic blood pressure for hypertensive patients with and without diastolic dysfunction during the phase of induction of anesthesia Grey boxes = hypertensive patients with diastolic dysfunction; white boxes = hypertensive patients without diastolic dysfunction; CONS = day of anesthetic consultation; BL-GA = baseline before general anesthesia; POST-IND = just before tracheal intubation; POST-INT = just after tracheal intubation. Data are presented as median, 10th, 25th, 75th, and 90th percentiles. Arrows displayed significant difference within group between different events. The same figure was obtained with brachial pulse pressure.
