PMID:  18277322     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Guidelines for the management of hypertension have started to include home blood pressure (BP) and 24-h ambulatory BP monitoring as preferred methods for diagnosing hypertension. The next step will be to incorporate automated office BP measurement into the algorithm for diagnosing hypertension. Recent studies support this approach with automated office BP readings being closely correlated with the ambulatory BP.
