Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) provides a profile of blood pressure (BP) during daily activities and sleep and could uncover the inter-individual variability of BP. The aims of this study were to establish the normal values of the ABPM during the three trimesters of normal pregnancy, and to compare these values with those obtained in the(More)
The aim of our study was the detection of blood pressure (BP) variability during a dialysis session and in the interdialytic period in normotensive and hypertensive hemodialysis (HD) patients using ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM). Twenty-two HD patients aged 54 (range, 33-78) years who were on HD for a mean of 17.7 (range, 1-70) months were(More)
