Were You Properly Diagnosed?
A vast amount of physicians are diagnosing hypertension without properly assessing a patient’s blood pressure during the course of a 24-hour period using Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring. Simply put, ABPM provides valuable diagnostic information that in-clinic and home blood pressure monitoring systems are incapable of measuring including:
- BP variability and a more accurate estimation of true blood pressure
- Overnight changes in blood pressure (dipper status)
- Morning surges in blood pressure
