Recommendation details

Recommendation ID: CG127/1
Question: Out-of-office monitoring: In adults with primary hypertension, does the use of out-of-office monitoring (home blood pressure monitoring-HBPM or ambulatory blood pressure monitoring-ABPM) improve response to treatment?
Page: 23
Any explanatory
notes (if applicable):
Why this is important: There is likely to be increasing use of home blood pressure monitoring (HBPM) and for the diagnosis of hypertension as a consequence of this guideline update. There are, however, very few data regarding the utility of HBPM or ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) as means of monitoring blood pressure control or as indicators of clinical outcome in treated hypertension, compared with clinic blood pressure monitoring. Studies should incorporate HBPM and/or ABPM to monitor blood pressure responses to treatment and their usefulness as indicators of clinical outcomes.
