Hypertension is diagnosed on the basis of a persistently high blood pressure(≥140/90). Traditionally, this requires three separate sphygmomano-meter measurements at one monthly intervals. Ambulatory BP monitoring devices are usually programmed to take readings at set intervals; 15–30 minutes during the day and every 30–60 minutes at night, to obtain numerous measurements while limiting interference with activity or sleep.
