• #### Measurement of blood pressure for the diagnosis and management of hypertension in different ethnic groups: one size fits all ﻿

(2017-02-08)
Background Hypertension is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease and prevalence varies by ethnic group. The diagnosis and management of blood pressure are informed by guidelines largely based on data from white ...
• #### Patient preferences for different methods of blood pressure measurement: is ethnicity relevant? ﻿

(Royal College of General Practitioners, 2016)
$\textit{Background:}$ Ambulatory and/or home monitoring are recommended in the UK and North America for the diagnosis of hypertension but little is known about acceptability. $\textit{Aim:}$ To determine the acceptability ...
• #### Predicting Out-of-Office Blood Pressure in the Clinic (PROOF-BP): Derivation and Validation of a Tool to Improve the Accuracy of Blood Pressure Measurement in Clinical Practice ﻿

(Wolters Kluwer, 2016-03-21)
Patients often have lower (white coat effect) or higher (masked effect) ambulatory/home blood pressure readings compared to clinic measurements, resulting in misdiagnosis of hypertension. The present study assessed whether ...
• #### Predicting Out-of-Office Blood Pressure in the Clinic for the Diagnosis of Hypertension in Primary Care: An Economic Evaluation. ﻿

(Wolters Kluwer Health, 2018-02)
Clinical guidelines in the US and UK recommend that individuals with suspected hypertension should have ambulatory blood pressure (BP) monitoring (ABPM) to confirm the diagnosis. This approach reduces misdiagnosis due to ...
• #### Protocol for Past BP: a randomised controlled trial of different blood pressure targets for people with a history of stroke of transient ischaemic attack (TIA) in primary care. ﻿

(2010-08-09)
Abstract Background Blood pressure (BP) lowering in people who have had a stroke or transient ischaemic attack (TIA) leads to reduced risk of further stroke. However, it is not clear what the target BP should be, since ...
• #### Telemonitoring and/or self-monitoring of blood pressure in hypertension (TASMINH4): protocol for a randomised controlled trial. ﻿

(BioMed Central, 2017-02-13)
BACKGROUND: Self-monitoring of hypertension is associated with lower systolic blood pressure (SBP). However, evidence for the use of self-monitoring to titrate antihypertensive medication by physicians is equivocal. ...
