24-hour blood pressure screening

In case of suspected arterial hypertension, a long-term screening can help find evidence of such. Sometimes a higher blood pressure is measured at the doctor’s; at home, though, everything seems to be in normal ranges when checking the blood pressure (the often so-called “white coat effect”). In a 24-hour blood pressure screening, the RR is checked every 30 minutes during the day, every 60 minutes at nighttime. This enables to observe the patient’s blood pressure under real everyday life conditions in much more detail.

The continued screening further allows a better adjustment of already existing medication, as it measures the moments that are crucial for adjustment (e.g. the morning hours before waking up) during which you as a patient are not able to take the blood pressure.

To see the difference between the average levels during the day and night is also of particular importance.
