The current evidence suggests that ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) should be an integral part of the diagnosis and management of hypertension. However, its uptake in routine clinical practice has been variable. This paper reviews the current evidence for the role of ABPM in clinical practice, including in hypotensive disorders and in specific comorbidities. It further discusses the clinical significance of abnormal ambulatory blood pressure patterns and hypertensive syndromes such as white coat, masked and resistant hypertension.
Keywords: Abnormal circadian rhythm, ambulatory blood pressure, masked hypertension, nocturnal hypertension, orthostatic hypotension, resistant hypertension, white coat hypertension.
