AMBULATORY BLOOD PRESSURE MONITORING (ABPM)

Can you imagine our blood pressure being monitored as we move around and perform our daily chores?

ABPM does it for us. As mentioned it stands for Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring. It is a small diagnostic blood pressure monitor attached to a belt around the waist of the patient connected to the upper arm through the cuff. It is a small device and light weighted and measures the pressure for all day long, during night time as well. It is used by the doctor to get a clear idea for Blood Pressure regulation during normal routine intervals. The device is non-invasive and comfortable thus preventing white coat by keeping the patient calm and non-anxious about being tested.

Procedures for the ABPM Test :

The test may vary from one clinic to others. However, at Cardium, the machine usually works in the following manner:

  • During daytime at regular intervals around every 15 to 30 minutes, recordings are noted in the machine
