Blood Pressure Elevation in Diabetes: The Results From 24-H Ambulatory Blood Pressure Recordings

Ambulatory blood pressure (BP) measurement permits assessment of BP in the patients own surroundings, during normal daily activities on the job and in the night. Previously semiautomatic monitors were used, which required manually inflation of the cuff [1], or direct (intraarterial) BP measurement [2]. The first true ambulatory 24-h report of indirectly measured BP obtained with a portable and fully automatic monitor was published in 1975 [3].
