Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitor
An Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitor is worn for 24 hours to record your blood pressure at regular intervals under normal living and working conditions. The information collected during this time can help you and your doctor see if your blood pressure treatment is working. The monitor may help your doctor find out if you are a person who only has high blood pressure when you are at the doctor’s office. This condition is known as “white coat syndrome”. This monitor is usually scheduled to be put on at 8:30am and is returned to us by 8:00am the following day. During this time, you will not be able to shower but you can continue to do all your other daily activities.
