  1. aThe values were extracted from Figs. 2a, b and 3a, b, c and d, reporting as mean (95 % CI) in mmHg
  2. bWhen temperature was 9.6/10.2 °C, the SBP/DBP value reaching highest and named high threshold value. When temperature was 20.4/21.7 °C, the SBP/DBP value reaching lowest and named low threshold value
  3. cIn our data, 24.6 °C is the hottest temperature and 4.5 °C is the lowest temperature
