​Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring​

Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring helps in the assessment of blood pressure on an hourly basis for 24 hours and the readings are captured on a special recorder. The readings are then analysed by sophisticated equipment.  The results are interpreted by an experienced cardiologist (doctor especially trained to treat diseases and disorders of the heart).

  • An advance appointment must be made. 

  • Bring your doctor's prescription to the appointment. 

  • You should eat all meals and take your prescribed medications as usual.

  • Wear clothing with loose sleeves.

  • Equipment consists of a recorder and a blood pressure cuff, which is applied to the arm. You will wear the cuff continuously for the duration of the test. The cuff will inflate automatically every hour to record your blood pressure.

  • Please carry out all your activities as usual except bathing.

  • You will be asked to keep a diary to record all your activities and any symptom with the exact time of its occurrence.

  • You will be instructed to return to the hospital at a given time to have the equipment removed.
