Clinical research summary into how home monitoring can help blood pressure levels

Study: The British Medical Journal — “Blood pressure control by home monitoring” Published June 2004.

Kellie’s summary: The study analyzed the results from 18 trials to show the proportion of people achieving their target blood pressure levels was increased by home monitoring. The study at St Georges’ Hospital Medical School, London also showed blood pressure control was improved with home monitoring. Systolic blood pressure levels were lower in people with hypertension who home monitored their blood pressure than in those who only had their blood pressure checked by a practitioner by 4.2mmHg. Diastolic blood pressure was lower by 2.4mm Hg, and mean blood pressure was lower by 4.4mm Hg in those who monitored their blood pressure from home.
