24 Hour Blood Pressure Screening

A Special Monitor

24-hour or ‘ambulatory’ blood pressure monitoring requires you to wear a special monitor for a 24 hour period.

Less Stressful

This monitor takes readings at set intervals during the 24 hours. This service monitors changes to your blood pressure more accurately throughout the day and night. It also helps to eliminate the ‘white-coat phenomenon’. This occurs when a person’s blood pressure is known to rise due to the stress of attending a Doctor.

Widely Used

Many Doctor’s use 24-hour monitoring before deciding whether you need to be started on medication to lower your blood pressure, or whether your medication needs to be changed.
