From April to October 2018, we implemented a blood pressure measurement quality improvement project at our Hypertension Center. We aimed to compare blood pressure measured using routine, non-standardized office blood pressure and Systolic Blood Pressure Intervention Trial-like automated office blood pressure protocols.

Previous studies have examined the relevance of hypertension (HTN) screening in walk-in clinics. So far, no valid algorithm has been proposed on how to integrate HTN screening in this context. The aim...
Automated office blood pressure (AOBP) has emerged as a valuable tool to assess patient's BP status, but the lack of strong evidence to establish a threshold value for hypertension diagnosis limits it...
Automated office blood pressure (AOBP) machines measure blood pressure (BP) multiple times over a brief period. We aimed to compare the results of manual office blood pressure (MOBP) and AOBP methods ...
Uncertainty exists regarding the accuracy of automated blood pressure (BP) measurement in children. We recorded oscillometric waveforms in children, derived oscillometric BPs using two standard algori...
The present study aimed to evaluate the accuracy of the Health & Life automated oscillometric upper-arm blood pressure monitor HL868ED for blood pressure monitoring according to the British Hypertensi...
The Hypertension Canada Clinical Practice Guidelines for blood pressure measurement using AOBP recommend against any wait time prior to commencing the measurement. The recent AHA guideline...
To determine if the use of automated office blood pressure readings can improve management of systolic hypertension in routine clinical practice. Automated office SBP recordings in routine...
The investigators plan to determine if the sequence of blood pressure measurements from the sitting position to the table and vice versa has an impact on the measurements.
Assessment of the possible difference in masked hypertension prevalence when it is evaluated by automated office blood pressure measurement (AOBPM) instead of office blood pressure measure...
Background: While office BP measurements were traditionally used to detect, diagnose and manage hypertension(HT), studies had convincingly showed that out-of-office blood pressure, includi...
Use of computers or computer systems for doing routine clerical work, e.g., billing, records pertaining to the administration of the office, etc.
The continuous measurement of physiological processes, blood pressure, heart rate, renal output, reflexes, respiration, etc., in a patient or experimental animal; includes pharmacologic monitoring, the measurement of administered drugs or their metabolites in the blood, tissues, or urine.
Comparison of the BLOOD PRESSURE between the BRACHIAL ARTERY and the POSTERIOR TIBIAL ARTERY. It is a predictor of PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL DISEASE.
Individuals responsible for various duties pertaining to the medical office routine.
Method in which repeated blood pressure readings are made while the patient undergoes normal daily activities. It allows quantitative analysis of the high blood pressure load over time, can help distinguish between types of HYPERTENSION, and can assess the effectiveness of antihypertensive therapy.
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a chronic, life-threatening disorder characterized by abnormally high blood pressure in the arteries between the heart and lungs of affected individuals. Symptoms can range from mild breathles...
