Acceptability and Adherence to Home, Kiosk, and Clinic Blood Pressure Measurement Compared to 24-H Ambulatory Monitoring – Journal of General Internal Medicine

Original Study: Randomized Diagnostic Study: home blood pressure measurements correlate better with 24-h ambulatory monitoring measurements compared to clinic, and kiosk measurements.

Study suggests a 30-second interval between automated office blood pressure measurements is as accurate and reliable as a 60-second interval.

USPSTF Statement recommends screening for hypertension in adults 18 years or older with office blood pressure measurement – diagnostic confirmation with blood pressure measurements outside of the clinical setting is advised before starting treatment

Study suggests that 7 days of home blood pressure monitoring is likely better than 24h ambulatory monitoring or 3 office measurements
