Private Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring
Vista Health offer up to 24hr Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (ABPM) to give you an accurate measure of your blood pressure over a period of time. Blood pressure is measured using a Blood Pressue cuff and a digital monitor and is a way of examining if your blood pressure is too high or too low.
What is Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (ABPM)?
Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (ABPM) is the measuring of your blood pressure while you move around, living your normal daily life. It is measured over a period of up to 24 hours.
A cuff is placed around one of your arms and at regular intervals is pumped up to restrict the blood flow in your arm. The attached digital monitor then records your blood pressure.

Why might I need a 24-hour monitor?
Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (ABPM) may be recommended for several reasons.
To evaluate how well medication is controlling your blood pressure.
To diagnose a medical condition of hypertension which is a long-term condition in which the blood pressure in the arteries is persistently elevated.
To exclude higher clinical readings taken in a clinical setting, known as "white coat syndrome".
To assess when your blood pressure increases or decreases.
