Ambulatory BP Monitoring
The blood pressure changes with every heartbeat. A single office visit may not be sufficient to detect underlying hypertension. Ambulatory BP monitoring is a non-invasive test. A small BP machine is attached to you for 24 hours. It records BP automatically at different times of the day while you may be doing different kinds of activities like walking, climbing, working, eating and sleeping. It is a very accurate method to detect underlying hidden high BP, which can be promptly detected and treated early. It also helps doctors to select the right dose and timing of BP medicines.
