Abstract

Blood pressure measurements made in the physician's office have been the standard for diagnosing hypertension and determining the efficacy of antihypertensive drug therapy. However, these measurements do not necessarily reflect a patient's usual blood pressures in other circumstances, such as at work or in the home. Accurate blood pressure measurements performed by the patient or a family member in an out-of-office setting can be integrated with office readings to assist in the management of hypertension.
