Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitor

Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitor

Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitor

 

This procedure involves the application of a blood pressure cuff to the non-dominant arm with BP recordings made at regular intervals.

 

The monitor will indicate to the patient when it is about to inflate and has an override button if inflation of the cuff becomes uncomfortable. The cuff can also be easily repositioned by the patient if required. A patient dairy is issued to document daily activities for greater understanding of BP trends.

 

The monitor's applications include an early diagnosis of hypertension and to ensure normal BP trends through the day and night. This may be used to prevent a patient progressing towards hypertensive heart disease and associated problems, or to assist better management of medication therapy. There is no risk associated with the procedure. No preparation by the patient is required.
