Aim: The Cardiovascular changes may take place during upright standing position. Several types of compression bandage areused to treat the orthostatic hypotension, mainly abdominal compression bandages are recommended for the reduction of gravity induced blood pressure drop. The aim of the study was to determine the effect of abdominal binder on blood pressure in lying and standing position among self-reported college students.
Methodolgoy: The blood pressure was measured in both the groups from lying to standing position by the use of sphygmomanometer.Subjects in group B wear abdominal binder in lying and standing position while measuring blood pressure. The values in both the positions were recorded.
Results: The result showed there were significant changes within group analysis of systolic blood pressure in lying and standing position (p<0.01)and there were significant changes in within group analysis of diastolic blood pressure without abdominal binder (p<0.01)when used abdominal binder from lying to standing position (p=0.083) it did not show any significant changes. The unpaired ‘t’ test result showed insignificant changes in lying to standing in systolic blood pressure (p = 0.892 and 0.386) and diastolic blood pressure (p = 0.811 and 0.403).
Conclusion: The abdominal binder is not an effective means in maintaining blood pressure during lying to standing position. Butonly in diastolic blood pressure it gives significant changes in maintaining the blood pressure.
