One mqx-503 study 36 using the raynaud condition score as a primary outcome was included in meta-analysis with that outcome however, the frequency and duration of attacks failed to reach statistical significance within that trial. Raynaud's disease is a condition caused by constriction and spasms of small arteries, primarily in the hands after exposure to cold frequently, white or bluish discoloration of the hands (and sometimes toes, cheeks, nose, or ears) will occur after exposure to cold or emotional stress.

A 7-year study of raynaud phenomenon in whites in the united states showed baseline prevalence rates of 11% in women and 8% in men and yearly incidence rates of 22% in women and 15% in men internationally, the prevalence of primary raynaud phenomenon varies among different populations, from 49%-201% in women to 38%-135% in men. The raynaud's condition score (rcs) is a validated outcome measure for raynaud's phenomenon (rp) our objective was to assess the minimally important difference (mid) and patient acceptable symptom state (pass) for rcs in patients with rp. The condition is primary in 80% of cases and secondary in 20% 1 the primary form is idiopathic—that is, not linked to any other comorbid condition or disease the secondary form is diagnosed.
Raynaud's phenomenon (also known as raynaud's syndrome or raynaud's disease) is a condition where cold temperatures and/or stress cause small blood vessels to narrow and, in turn, temporarily restrict blood flow to your fingers, toes, ears, and nose. Forty people with raynaud's phenomenon will take part in the study ten participants have primary raynaud's and 30 have secondary raynaud's once the app has been developed by the team, led by post-doctoral research associate dr graham dinsdale, it'll be given to the participants for two weeks. Primary raynaud syndrome is much more common ( 80% of cases) than secondary it occurs without symptoms or signs of other disorders in the remaining 20% of patients with raynaud symptoms, a causative underlying disease (eg, systemic sclerosis) will be evident at initial presentation or diagnosed subsequently.

Raynaud's phenomenon (rp) is a common and painful condition characterized by episodic digital ischaemia produced by emotion and cold treatment of rp is notoriously difficult because of the high incidence of side effects the aim of our study was to investigate the clinical efficacy of a. Anybody who has the condition (at any stage and any severity) is interested, even just to the point of receiving an information sheet, is under no obligation to commit to the study, and may withdraw at any time , and without reason. A condition that causes vasospasm which restricts blood flow to certain areas of the body most often the fingers, toes, tip of the nose and ears become cold and change color in response to cold or stress.

Raynaud phenomenon manifests as recurrent vasospasm of the fingers and toes and usually occurs in response to stress or cold exposure the phenomenon is named for maurice raynaud, who, as a medical student, defined the first case in 1862 as. This study demonstrates that the raynaud's condition score, the haq, and the mood and tension scales of the aims2 are reliable measures among patients with ssc and rp it also shows that the rcs and other rp measures are quite sensitive to change, and that patients' assessments of pain and of the overall impact of disease also change, but. While this type of raynaud's isn't induced by cold and wet conditions, heated gloves for raynaud's should always be on hand if you experience symptoms of the disease prevention and protection is crucial when it comes to circulatory issues.

The results of the clinical trial (nct01784354) were presented in the study a randomized controlled trial of acupressure for the treatment of raynaud's phenomenon: the difficulty of conducting a trial in raynaud's phenomenon, published in the journal of scleroderma and related disorders.
Raynaud's treatment study investigators health psychol 1999 jul18(4):421-6 comparison of sustained-release nifedipine and temperature biofeedback for treatment of primary raynaud phenomenon.
