  Purpose

Watching football matches could cause increased blood pressure and heart rate induced by catecholamines and thus increase the incidence of cardiovascular events. However, no studies have evaluated the responses of blood pressure and heart rate in soccer spectators.

This study evaluates the hemodynamic response in Brazilian soccer fans suffering from coronary artery disease during a dispute over a game of your favorite team.

Further study details as provided by Daniel Medeiros Moreira, Instituto de Cardiologia de Santa Catarina:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Average mean arterial pressure [ Time Frame: 90 minutes ]
    To evaluate the difference between the average mean arterial pressure in patients with coronary artery disease, or not watching a game of soccer your favorite team;


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean heart rate [ Time Frame: 90 minutes ]
    To evaluate the difference between the mean heart rate;

  • Systolic blood pressure [ Time Frame: 90 minutes ]
    To evaluate the difference between the systolic blood pressure;

  • Diastolic blood pressure [ Time Frame: 90 minutes ]
    To evaluate the difference between the diastolic blood pressure;

  • Double product [ Time Frame: 90 minutes ]
    To evaluate the difference between the double product (the product of heart rate and systolic blood pressure);

  • Angina [ Time Frame: 90 minutes ]
    To evaluate the difference between the presence of angina;
