Abstract

  • Home blood pressure monitoring aids in the proper diagnosis of an elevated blood pressure in the office.
  • Written instructions on proper BP measurement at home is currently lacking at the UVMMC Family Medicine South Burlington site in addition to other affiliated sites. A home blood pressure monitoring handout can serve as another opportunity for hypertension control.
  • Its utility as a diagnostic tool is dependent on proper BP measurement techniques. The HBPM will hopefully encourage the proper utility of the device.
  • HBPM encourages patients to take control of their own health, and at the same time it facilitates discussion with their physicians
