AIHI Lunchtime Seminar Series: What is the best method of blood pressure measurement in routine clinical practice?

High blood pressure (hypertension) is an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease, a significant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. The diagnosis and management of hypertension depends on accurate measurement of blood pressure in order to target antihypertensive treatment appropriately and avoid unnecessary healthcare costs. Traditionally, blood pressure measurement takes place in the physician’s clinic. However, this measurement frequently under/overestimates true blood pressure and may result in incorrect classification and hence subsequent management.
