Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) is an ideal tool for the diagnosis and evaluation of hypertension.However, ABPM frequently measures the tightening feeling and buzzing sound of the blood pressure cuff during nighttime, which can cause the patient to wake up easily during sleep, which will affect the sleep of the patient. Moreover, improper awakening of the patient from sleep can significantly increase the patient's blood pressure and affect the accuracy of ABPM monitoring. The Effect of ABPM on Sleep Disturbance (EMBED) study is designed to examine whether ABPM affects sleep, as well as the relationship and influencing factors of sleep and ABPM results, and screening for people who are susceptible to ABPM testing.
Participants who accept ABPM in the Second Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University School of Medicine, will be recruited for EMBED enrollment. Participants will be asked to provide basic background information and to fill out the STOP-BANG evaluation form. Anxiety, depression, insomnia, sleep questionnaire and pain assessment scale for cuff inflation are used to assess characteristics of participants and their sleep quality. Before ABPM starts, office blood pressure of participants will be measured. Participants will undergo ABPM under standardized guidance. At the end of ABPM, participants will be asked to fill in sleep questionnaire and pain assessment scale for cuff inflation again. EMBED proposes to study whether ABPM affects sleep, as well as the relationship and influencing factors of sleep and ABPM results, and screening for people who are susceptible to ABPM testing. A better understanding of interaction between ABPM and sleep will help us further evaluate the accuracy of ABPM and more precisely control diurnal hypertension in the future.

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.
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.
Phenomenon where increased BLOOD PRESSURE readings taken in non-clinical settings (e.g., HOME BLOOD PRESSURE MONITORING) do not replicate in clinical settings.
The use of electronic equipment to observe or record physiologic processes while the patient undergoes normal daily activities.
Persistently high systemic arterial BLOOD PRESSURE. Based on multiple readings (BLOOD PRESSURE DETERMINATION), hypertension is currently defined as when SYSTOLIC PRESSURE is consistently greater than 140 mm Hg or when DIASTOLIC PRESSURE is consistently 90 mm Hg or more.
