1 day test

Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) measures variations in blood pressure (BP) during the entire day (24 hour period) and identifies the correct phenotype of your blood pressure. This detects abnormal fluctuations in BP that might go unnoticed when BP is only measured in the doctor’s office.

Measured at 15-30 min intervals during day and night over 24 hour period.

ABPM allows recording many BP readings over a 24-hour period, whether the patient is awake or asleep.

Provides additional information about how your changes in BP may correlate with your daily activities and sleep patterns

Software based measurement for better patient compliance and lesser human errors.

What your results explain?

At the end of the test, the recorded results will be transferred to the database. Your BP profile will be analyzed and you will get a printed report.

The report will assist you to evaluate whether:

Your BP is showing large variability.

There is a large variation in office BP reading or home BP measurements

Your antihypertensive therapy is effective.

At the end of the test, the recorded results will be transferred to the database. Your BP profile will be analyzed and you will get a printed report.

What is the test
about?

It is a non-office based diagnostic test for
hypertension.

Provides BP readings based on multiple measurements over 24 hours and hence are better for accessing variability in BP compared to single in-clinic measurement.

Provides BP readings based on multiple measurements over 24 hours and hence are better for accessing variability in BP compared to single in-clinic measurement.

Best out of office method, with a potential to provide separate readings for daytime and nighttime.

Ambulatory monitoring can rule out white coat hypertension, detect masked hypertension, reduce organ damage and evaluate efficacy of antihypertensive medications.

How is the test done?

24 Hours

BP readings are taken every 30 minutes or frequently over a span of 24 hours.

20 Measurements at least

ABPM record should provide at least 20 valid daytime measurements.

7 Measurements at least

70% of the expected 24-hour readings should be valid.

What does the
test
measure?

ABPM is a gold standard test for detection of right type of blood pressure.

ABPM provides better picture of individual’s BP over a span of 24 hours with precision, making it superior compared to standard one time measurement.

The test has ability to detect natural changes in blood pressure at night and in the morning and also changes in BP with environmental and emotional variations.

Who should take
the test?

White coat hypertension.

When false high BP is seen in office settings while at home it is normal.

Masked hypertension

It is when the clinic (office) BP reading is non-elevated, but out of office BP reading is high.

Nocturnal hypertension

When BP reading at night is more than 110/65 mm Hg.

Resistant hypertension

When the ambulatory BP readings demonstrate well controlled BP, but office readings are falsely higher.

Resistant hypertension

When the ambulatory BP readings demonstrate well controlled BP, but office readings are falsely higher.

How is the test
validated?

Test validation:

ABPM devices are validated as per internationally accepted validation protocols.

What does the report say:

A standardized single page report is obtained at the end of the test.
The report provides:
  • BP values at different 24 hour period, clearly demarcate individual’s awake and asleep time intervals
  • Statistical summary of BP and heart rate separately for 24 hour, the daytime and the night time
  • Software generated interpretive report can also be obtained if opted for
