The Effect of Frequent Self Measurements of Blood Pressure on the Control of Hypertension
Despite knowledge regarding the importance of controlling patients' blood pressure (BP) only 30% of treated patients achieve BP goals. Our objective was to determine the effect of frequent self measurements of BP in the patients' natural environment as a mean to improve BP control. Our hypothesis was that frequent measurements of BP will reduce mean BP levels.
