Clinical utility of ambulatory blood pressure monitoring in the evaluation of patients with borderline hypertension.
Journal of cardiovascular risk
Journal Article Review --- Old month value: Aug
Blood pressure measured in the physician's office often differ considerably from those recorded during everyday activities away from the medical environment. This fact is particularly important in patients whose office blood pressures are only mildly elevated because, in a large proportion of these people, the elevation is observed only when blood pressures are measured in the physician's office and not when they are measured during normal activities. There is little evidence that this 'white-coat' hypertension is associated with increased cardiovascular risk, but patients with the condition are prone to develop sustained hypertension over time. It is therefore advisable to monitor these individual regularly so that antihypertensive therapy can be initiated when appropriate.
