The Big Picture
When it comes to blood pressure readings, office tests are good, but ABPM removes any doubt. If taken during an average day it can accurately allow medical professionals to diagnose hypertension or other blood pressure related conditions. An ambulatory blood pressure test can also help determine if a patient would benefit from antihypertensive drugs.
While any sort of medical testing can feel overwhelming, ABPM is an incredibly simple way to determine and improve your blood pressure levels. Even better, diagnosing and treating hypertension can improve your overall health.
If you think you may benefit from ABPM, speak with your doctor. They can help you determine the best and healthiest course of action for you.
