Abstract

Evidence demonstrates that the method used to obtain blood pressure measurements significantly impacts readings. Most primary care and urgent care clinics do not follow a standardized procedure for obtaining patient blood pressure in the office, resulting in inaccurate readings and potentially unrecognized or overestimated hypertension prevalence. Following a validated and reproducible method of obtaining blood pressure measurements is critical in correctly diagnosing and managing hypertension.
