Measuring your blood pressure is a simple way of checking if your blood pressure is either too high, or too low. If your blood pressure is too high, this can lead to heart failure and strokes. As such, this easy test may save your life.
Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) is more accurate than isolated single BP measurements. The ABMP test is carried out over a 24-hour period, and enables you to move around and continue with your normal daily life.
During the test, a small digital monitor will be attached to your upper arm by a secure disposable cuff to keep it in place.
