Results obtained at the University of California in San Francisco with the Remler M-2000, patient-activated, semi-automatic portable blood pressure recorder were reviewed. The automated recordings were accurate and reproducible in comparison with simultaneous readings obtained with a conventional sphygmomanometer. Daytime pressures in ambulatory patients were correlated reasonably well with office blood pressures (r = 0.63-0.69), but in 80% of the patients ambulatory blood pressures were lower… Expand
Applications of ambulatory blood pressure monitoring in clinical practice.
TLDR
Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring with small, portable devices that automatically measure blood pressure every few minutes throughout the day appears to be an appropriate tool when "white-coat" hypertension is suspected--i.e., for individuals whose hypertension in the physician's office is not associated with other physical or historical evidence for cardiovascular disease or with other risk factors.

TLDR
Casual and ambulatory blood pressure readings are not alternative but complementary tools for clinical management of hypertension and for assessment of the prognostic risk of hypertension. Expand

Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring in insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus adolescents with and without microalbuminuria.
TLDR
It is postulate that these milder changes in ABPM represent an earlier phase to that observed in the adult population and that taken together, the adolescent and adult data suggests a specific order in the development of ABPM changes in diabetic subjects. Expand
Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring and serum nitric oxide concentration in type 1 diabetic children.
TLDR
Investigation of serum NO concentration along with ambulatory blood pressure monitoring parameters in type 1 diabetic patients and whether there are correlation between serum NO level and ABPM parameters revealed that serum NO(2)- + NO(3)- concentrations and 24 hours DBP were independently associated with the development of microalbuminuria.

Ambulatory blood pressure measurement in general practice.
TLDR
In the past, anibulatory blood pressure levels were studied in relatively small groups of 'normal' subjects who were often selected from blood pressure clinics on the basis of blood pressure readings on conventional measurement and were not, therefore, representative of tile population. Expand
Impaired Exercise Tolerance in Hypertensive Patients
TLDR
The response to exercise in hypertensive patients may be a more useful end point to assess the efficacy of antihypertensive therapy than is resting blood pressure. Expand
Nighttime blood pressure dipping: the role of the sympathetic nervous system.
TLDR
The present study examined the contribution of the sympathetic nervous system to BP dipping in a biracial sample of 172 men and women aged 25 to 45 years, finding that nondippers were more likely to be African American and to have a family history of hypertension as well as a higher body mass index (BMI). Expand
Relationship between microalbuminuria and cardiac structural changes in mild hypertensive patients.
TLDR
Data indicate that microalbuminuria in essential hypertension represents an early marker of cardiac structural damage and a forward stepwise regression model indicated that blood pressure levels did not influence UAE. Expand
