An increase in arterial tone has traditionally been viewed as the hallmark for an elevated BP. Although some have suggested that an increase in cardiac output with a normal vascular resistance is the initial hemodynamic abnormality in patients with hypertension, the chronic hypertensive state 28 Part I / Cardiovascular Disease Risk Factors usually is associated with an increase in total systemic vascular resistance.
