What is ambulatory blood pressure monitoring?
24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring is a tool to check a patient's blood pressure throughout the day and night. Ambulatory monitoring will check one’s blood pressure once per hour, totaling 24 measurements in one day. This will provide providers with a more accurate collection of data which can be used to determine BP distribution pattern and other statistical calculations. It is particularly helpful to see how a patient’s blood pressure varies throughout the day compared to when they are sleeping.
