Wang et al. (23)200131Clinic BP 10-d morning home BPAmbulatory BP monitoringThe association of clinic systolic BP with daytime systolic BP (r=0.81; P<0.05) was stronger than the association of home systolic BP with daytime systolic BP (r=0.62; P<0.05)
Koc et al. (21)200274Clinic BPAmbulatory BP monitoring24-h ambulatory BP could detect the presence of LV hypertrophy, whereas clinic BP had no association with indices of target organ damage
O’Shaughnessy et al. (22)201317Clinic BP BpTRU-derived BPa 7-d morning home BPAmbulatory BP monitoringHome systolic BP overestimated daytime systolic BP by 14.2 mm Hg (95% CI, 4.3 to 21.4 mm Hg); routine clinic BP and BpTRU-derived BP could better approximate daytime BP
  • LV, left ventricular; 95% CI, 95% confidence interval.

  • a BpTRU records BP automatically without an observer.
