Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) tracks and monitors your blood pressure at regular intervals over 24 hours. You can walk around and perform all your normal activities during the day.
A lightweight monitor is fitted to your waist which is connected to a cuff on your arm for this period of time. After 24 hours the device will be removed and the results will be downloaded. The GP will see how your blood pressure changed throughout the day and reports the result to you.
