Advice from the BP Measurement Experts
Thanks to the increasing concern regarding cardiovascular disease, blood pressure (BP) is one of the more well-known vital signs. Just about everyone has had their BP measured in a clinic. In the last few years, many track their own BP with the widespread availability and affordability of home monitors. Although experts in cardiology regard ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) as the gold standard, it is not as frequently used in regular medical practice as in-office or home BP.
Each method has its benefits and disadvantages.
Given these issues, the methods that clinicians use in their practices today are a true measure of their value. As countries wrestle with general healthcare issues of cost-of-delivery, affordability, and accessibility, the choices that clinicians make on how they practice medicine are important to their effectiveness and to their patients.
With all that said, we at SunTech are interested to hear your thoughts on the use of BP in your practice. We would appreciate it if you could take a short, one to two-minute survey. As always, thanks for reading and if you choose, for participating!
