Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) is a major innovation in the history of hypertension diagnosis. In clinical practice, the most well established indication for using ABPM is to identify patients who have high BP readings in the office but normal readings during usual daily activities outside of this setting or vice versa, and to identify varying 24-h BP profiles. However, in recent years, there has been increasing interest in BP values during sleep, and nocturnal BP is now recognized to be superior to daytime BP in predicting fatal and nonfatal cardiovascular events (stroke, myocardial infarction, and cardiovascular death), especially in medicated patients.
The current direction in the management of hypertension is toward earlier and lower BP control for 24 hours, including the nocturnal and morning periods. Therefore, it may be of great significance to pay attention to the management of nocturnal blood pressure so as to reduce the increased cardiovascular risks.
Information of nocturnal hypertensive patients defined by ABPM was prospectively registered nationwide, and then to investigate whether there was difference in cardiovascular prognosis according to the control of ambulatory nocturnal blood pressure.

Involuntary shock-like contractions, irregular in rhythm and amplitude, followed by relaxation, of a muscle or a group of muscles. This condition may be a feature of some CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; (e.g., EPILEPSY, MYOCLONIC). Nocturnal myoclonus is the principal feature of the NOCTURNAL MYOCLONUS SYNDROME. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp102-3).
A condition in pregnant women with elevated systolic (>140 mm Hg) and diastolic (>90 mm Hg) blood pressure on at least two occasions 6 h apart. HYPERTENSION complicates 8-10% of all pregnancies, generally after 20 weeks of gestation. Gestational hypertension can be divided into several broad categories according to the complexity and associated symptoms, such as EDEMA; PROTEINURIA; SEIZURES; abnormalities in BLOOD COAGULATION and liver functions.
