Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring

Occasional blood pressure measurements taken at home or in a clinic may not provide complete information. This test monitors blood pressure at regular intervals over 24 hours and readings are recorded. These readings are then analyzed by sophisticated equipment and the results are interpreted by one of our Cardiologists.

The equipment consists of a small recorder and a blood pressure cuff, which is applied to the arm. The cuff is worn continuously for the duration of the test. The cuff will inflate automatically at regular intervals to record the blood pressure.

Usual activities should be performed except bathing.
