Home Testing Is Beneficial

SEPTEMBER 01, 2004

Home blood pressure monitoring allows individuals to better control their condition. For the study, the researchers looked at the results of 18 blood pressure monitoring studies of 2714 individuals with hypertension. Of the participants, 1359 tested their blood pressure at home and 1335 had their blood pressure checked in health care facilities. The results found that overall individuals who did home testing had lower blood pressure levels and more of them reached their blood pressure targets. (The findings were reported in the British Medical Journal, June 12, 2004.)
