This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (intervention). The objectives are as follows:
We will aim to conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis quantifying the effects of IRT on systolic, diastolic, mean arterial and 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure. We will also quantify changes in heartrate and heartrate variability, and will attempt to determine which patient demographics and exercise program characteristics are associated with the largest blood pressure changes.
