It is now well known that, for many individuals, blood pressure readings taken in a doctor's office or hospital setting might be elevated as a result of apprehension and anxiety. This response is commonly called "white coat hypertension." In any case, self-measurement at home supplements your doctor's readings and provides a more accurate, complete blood pressure history. In addition, clinical studies have shown that the detection and treatment of hepertension is improved when patients both consult their physicians and monitor their own blood pressure at home.
