Objectives. To study the characteristics of the emotional state of patients with hypertensive disease (HD) on the background of normal arterial blood pressure (BP) with assessment of the functional state of the cardiovascular system (CVS) and autonomic status. Materials and methods. A total of 80 patients (51 men, 29 women) were investigated and were divided into two groups: group 1 consisted of 60 patients with HD and normal BP for three months without severe concomitant pathology and group 2 consisted of essentially healthy subjects. Anthropometric measures were determined (height, weight, body mass index), along with central hemodynamic parameters (heart rate, systolic and diastolic BP); autonomic (the Kerdo index) and mental and emotional state were determined using a set of questionnaires and scales. Results and conclusions. A number of characteristics of the mental and emotional state of patients with HD were found, along with statistically significant relationships between this state and anthropometric measures and the state of the autonomic nervous system.
