Benefits Of ABPM Test
By measuring your blood pressure at regular intervals up to 24 hours, your doctor is able to get a clear idea of how your blood pressure changes throughout the day. Also, because you are able to carry on with your normal routine, it avoids the problems of ‘white coat’ syndrome (where your blood pressure rises because you are feeling anxious about being tested by your doctor or nurse).
Why do I need this investigation?
There are a number of reasons why you might need this:
To establish a diagnosis of high blood pressure (hypertension)
To identify patients who have higher blood pressure readings when in the clinic (known as ‘white coat effect’)
To help decide if blood pressure medication is required
To help to decide whether any change to your medication is required
To further investigate people whose blood pressure is hard to control
To see how well a patient’s blood pressure medicines are controlling blood pressure throughout the day
To see what happens to a patient’s blood pressure at night
What do I need to do?
To allow the machine to work properly, it is important to make sure that the tube to the machine is not twisted or bent. Also, just before the machine is about to take a reading, it will alert you. When this happens, you should:
Sit down, if possible
Keep the cuff at the same level as your heart
Keep your arm still
Do not talk or cross your legs during the recording
Your clinician may ask you to keep a diary whilst wearing the monitor; what time you went bed and got up and if and when you took medications. Some people find 24-hour testing distracting and uncomfortable. Your clinician should advise you of what to do in this case when they fit the monitor.
