Summary
Aim. This study was designed to compare the level of sense of coherence in hypertensive patients with arterial stiffness or leftventricular hypertrophy and in hypertensive individuals without such health complications.
Methods. The study group consisted of 93 participants. All of them were asked to undergo the following procedures: clinical assessment, echocardiography (to diagnose hypertensive cardiac damage), pulse wave velocity measurement (to assess vascular damage) and psychological testing (to measure their level of comprehensibility, manageability, meaningfulness, and sense of coherence).
Results. Patients with hypertensive vascular damage (high pulse wave velocity) had higher levels of comprehensibility and sense of coherence than other hypertensive subjects. At the same time, there were no significant differences in the level of sense of coherence (and all of its dimensions) between individuals with and people without hypertensive left ventricular hypertrophy.
Conclusions. The findings of this study suggest, that the sense of coherence may not be strongly associated with good somatic health. They may also contribute to the discussion about diagnostic usefulness of the SOC-29 method as a single tool. We believe that the level of sense of coherence should be taken into consideration in further studies on the development of hypertensive TOD.
