The 24 hour ABPM monitoring allows for a complete evaluation of the blood pressure profile of the patient.
ABPM monitoring avoids the so-called “White Coat” hypertension effect and gives a more accurate pressure profile of the patient over the 24 hour period.
ABPM monitoring is particularly recommended for:
The 24 hour blood pressure monitoring, so called BPM Holter or Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (ABPM), is a non-invasive test that records arterial pressure continuously for 24 hours. It is a small device that is conveniently located at the waist. The doctor/pharmacist connects the monitor and the cuff on the patient who will wear it for 24 hours. Cuffs are available in different sizes.
During recording, blood pressure will be measured automatically every 15 minutes during the day and every 30 minutes during the night, in accordance with latest International guidelines for ABPM monitoring.
It has been proven that ambulatory monitoring of the arterial pressure during 24 hours has a higher predictive value on cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events. The data analysis of the 24 hours blood pressure monitoring also allows the nighttime blood pressure profile to be observed. Therefore taking into consideration any physiologic reduction of pressure values (dipping) or a physiologic raise of the arterial pressure in the morning (morning surge).
