The Gold Standard for Diagnosing Hypertension

Press play to watch the webinar now.

Webinar Overview

Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) is now the reference standard for assessing blood pressure. The United States Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) issued a Grade A recommendation that out-of-office measurements should be obtained before making a new hypertension diagnosis, with ABPM being the preferred method.¹

Learn from two of the field’s leading experts on how ABPM can help enhance blood pressure management versus in-office and home measurements, and help clinicians make better therapeutic decisions.
