Abstract

Compared the self-monitored activities, locations, and postural positions of 28 hypertensives while they wore an alarm watch and then while they wore a 24-hr ambulatory blood pressure monitor (ABPM) to see if wearing the ABPM led to alterations in behavior. Within the limitations of the study (no counterbalancing of order and twice as many ABPM measures as watch measures), we found significant differences in frequency of being at home or in miscellaneous settings, in standing and reclining positions, and in mental, physical and miscellaneous activities between the two occasions.
