Systolic BP and mortality in older adults with CKD.
This study sought to determine whether a nonlinear relationship between BP and mortality - as described for the broader chronic kidney disease (CKD) population and for older adults in the general population - is present for older adults with CKD. It found that in a cohort of older adults, a relationship between higher SBP and mortality was present only for younger members of this cohort and not for those older than 70.
