Ambulatory Blood Pressure And Intervention Studies

Due to the high reproducibility of ambulatory BP compared with clinic measurements it is an ideal tool for intervention studies [16,120]. The 24-h effectiveness of the intervention can be evaluated, the number of patients needed can be reduced without loosing power and small changes in BP, which would be overlooked by traditional measurements, can be recognised. Ambulatory BP is now a standard methodology for monitoring BP changes in intervention studies.So far there have been no confirmed reports of an altered circadian BP profile after antihypertensive treatment in diabetic patients.
