Are you worried about high blood pressure?


High blood pressure contributes to heart attacks and strokes. A one-off test at a hospital does not give a complete picture as your blood pressure rises and falls throughout the day. An ABPM test over 24 hrs allows a doctor to tailor medicine and advice specifically to you.


Physiologist interpretation is included in the price.

About


Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) involves a cuff and bladder connected to electronic sensors which detect changes in cuff pressure and allow blood pressure to be measured.


A patient’s blood pressure can be automatically measured at repeated intervals throughout the day and night, while they continue routine activities. Systolic and diastolic pressure can be plotted over time, with devices providing average day, night and 24-hour pressures. 


Methodology

Welch Allyn ABPM 7100 blood pressure monitor is fitted onto the patient and automatically takes a measurement every half an hour while the patient goes about his or her normal daily activities.


Monitoring over a full 24-hour period is useful for identifying patients whose blood pressure does not dip over the course of the day.


Patients are advised to keep a diary of what they are doing while they are wearing the device and should, at the very least, record when they went to sleep and when they woke up.

Preparation

No special preparation needed.
