摘要

To effectively evaluate treatments for hypertension, researchers and clinicians must be able to measure blood pressure (BP) in a valid and reliable way. The purpose of this study is to compare measurements made in the clinic using beat-to-beat radial BP tonometry, measurements made during 24 hours using an ambulatory BP monitor, and measurements made in the clinic using an automated oscillometric BP monitor. Fifty-seven adults with primary hypertension participated in this study, which used a repeated measures descriptive design. Clinic and ABPM daytime averages were compatible for both SBP and DBP. In contrast, clinic SBP was 7.56 mmHg higher than the beat-to-beat SBP; clinic DBP was 9.83 mmHg higher than the beat-to-beat DBP. These data suggest that automated clinic measurements may be used in place of daytime ambulatory BP measurements. We also estimate sample sizes for future studies based on characteristics of clinic BP.
