Short-Term and Long-Term Blood Pressure Changes and the Risk of All-Cause and Cardiovascular Mortality

Figure 4

ROC curves of maximum SBP changes to predict all-cause and CVD mortality. ROC curves (a) in short-term analysis and ROC curves (b) in long-term analysis. Short-term analysis: from the first follow-up (2008) to the second follow-up (2010). Long-term analysis: from the baseline (2004-2006) to the second follow-up (2010). ROC: receiver operating characteristics; SBP: systolic blood pressure.
