WEBINAR OVERVIEW

Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) is now the reference standard for assessing blood pressure. The United States Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) issued a Grade A recommendation that out-of-office measurements should be obtained before making a new hypertension diagnosis, with ABPM being the preferred method.¹

Learn from two of the field’s leading experts on how ABPM can help enhance blood pressure management versus in-office and home measurements, and help clinicians make better therapeutic decisions.
