When traditional blood pressure monitoring is not enough
While patients can check their blood pressure at home or at the drug store, clinicians still rely mostly on in-office blood pressure readings for hypertension management. But readings can be inaccurate for a variety of reasons, including white coat hypertension and masked hypertension.1 At home monitoring is superior to office readings in predicting future cardiovascular events, morbidity, mortality, and target organ damage, and there is increasing evidence supporting the 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) approach. 1 Evidence has been accumulating over the past decade demonstrating results of ABPM as superior to office blood pressure in predicting cardiovascular outcomes.2
Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) is the most cost-effective monitoring strategy
Compared with other dietary, lifestyle, and metabolic risk factors, high blood pressure is the leading cause of death in women and the second-leading cause of death in men.3 Findings of a study suggest that ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) is the most cost-effective monitoring strategy for most adults regardless of their initial clinic blood pressure screen results.4
With over 60 years of clinical expertise and ongoing innovation, Spacelabs’ latest generation ABP monitor products have been comprehensively tested and validated against the three most recognized international protocols to better serve your clinical needs.
