Abstract

According to recent international guidelines, 24-h ambulatory blood pressure monitoring plays an important role in the diagnostic and therapeutic approach of arterial hypertension. Indications of this technique are multiple, concerning both day- and night-time blood pressures. Blood pressures provided by ambulatory monitoring may be used to stratify cardiovascular risk.
