M3 Health in Melbourne offers 24 hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring. The device records your blood pressure reading every half an hour though the day, and every hour through the night.
Why should I complete 24 hour blood pressure monitoring?
Your GP will ask you to complete 24 hour blood pressure monitoring to confirm the presence of hypertension (high blood pressure) or to test response to a change in medication. 24 hour blood pressure monitoring gives a more accurate overview of your blood pressure then a single reading recorded at the centre.
It’s normal to experience anxiety when having your blood pressure taken at a medical centre. This anxiety can cause higher than normal blood pressure readings which we call “white coat hypertension”. 24 hour blood pressure monitoring can correct for this phenomenon.
24 hour blood pressure monitoring also gives your doctor important insight into your blood pressure readings during your sleep. This can be an important decision making tool, particularly when considering medication for hypertension.
