24Hr Blood Pressure Monitoring
Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (ABPM) is when your blood pressure is being measured as you move around, living your normal daily life. It is normally carried over 24 hours.
It uses a small digital blood pressure machine that is attached to a belt around your body and which is connected to a cuff around your upper arm. It small enough that you can go about your normal daily life and even sleep with it on.
The 24 hour blood pressure monitor allows clinicans to see the overall readings of a patients blood pressure. In turn, this gives the physician a more comprehensive glimpse into a patients needs when it comes to a treatment plan or course of action.
