Emotion Regulation in Patients with Essential Hypertension: Subjective-evaluative, Physiological, and Behavioral Aspects


AbstractThe primary aim of this research was to study characteristic features of emotion regulation in a stressful situation displayed by patients with essential hypertension (HTN). We examined 170 patients with HTN and 82 healthy individuals. In a situation modulating experimental stress HTN patients demonstrate a specific complex of physiological, subjective-evaluative and behavioral reactions and also aspiration level (AL) specifics, which reliably differs them from healthy people. 52.3% of HTN patients showed the growth of anxiety which disorganizes behavior, it is accompanied by open emotion expression and a variety of behavioral manifestations. 47.7% of patients with HTN characteristically display the mechanisms of suppression and denial of situations causing anxiety, as well as repression of emotions generated in stressful situations
