Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring: A Complementary Strategy for Hypertension Diagnosis and Management in Low-Income and Middle-Income Countries

Abdalla, Marwah

Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) can assess out-of clinic blood pressure. ABPM is an underutilized resource in low and middle-income countries but should be considered as a complimentary strategy to clinic blood pressure measurement for the diagnosis and management of hypertension. Potential uses for ABPM in low and middle-income countries include the use of ABPM for the screening of high-risk individuals who have concurrent communicable diseases such as HIV and the use of ABPM in task-shifting healthcare strategies.
