Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring

  • What is Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring?

    Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring is a test that allows your blood pressure and heart rate to be recorded at set intervals for a period of 24 hours, during which you carry on with your usual daily activities. Your blood pressure varies throughout the day depending on your emotional state and the activities you are performing. Therefore, measuring your blood pressure at one time may not reflect your actual blood pressure. The results of ambulatory blood pressure monitoring allow your doctor to assess the variations of your blood pressure throughout the 24-hour monitoring period.

  • Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring is very useful if you suffer from high blood pressure. It allows your doctor to assess if your blood pressure medications are effective. It is also useful in the assessment of mild hypertension, which might be over-diagnosed based on a single point blood pressure measurement. The results of this test can also show any blood pressure swings you may have.

    Your doctor may also order ambulatory blood pressure monitoring if you suffer from heart tremors, giddiness, tiredness and spells of rapid heartbeat. The correlation of blood pressure readings with your daily activity allows your doctor to find what activities trigger your symptoms, and if these symptoms are related to high blood pressure.
