Shake-up for blood pressure diagnosis backed by NICE


I am inclined to believe that 24-hour home monitoring will yield more accurate readings. All due to the Hawthorne effects experienced by patients. However, it would be interesting to know the percentage of patients for whom a trip to the G.P is a momentary escape from from a pressured home environment. Never the less, 24-hour monitoring seems to be a step forward.
