Description Background: 24 hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) values for patients who have office BP of 130/80 mm Hg have not been clearly reported. Aim: The determination of ABPM values in treated hypertensive subjects corresponding to a mean office BP of 130/80 mm Hg. Methods: BP measurement in subjects 40-70 years old, by ABPM and mercury sphygmomanometer. The inclusion criteria were: mean office BP systolic (SBP) 128-132 mm Hg and diastolic (DBP) 78-82 mm Hg. Seventy six subjects met all study inclusion criteria. Results: Mean office BP: SBP 129.5 1.1 mm Hg, DBP 79.9 1.3 mm Hg. Mean 24 hour BP: SBP 121.9 2.0 mm Hg, DBP 73.1 1.9 mm Hg. Mean awake BP: SBP 124.9 2.4 mm Hg, DBP 75.5 2.2 mm Hg. Mean asleep BP: SBP 109.1 3.9 mm Hg, DBP 63.3 4.0 mm Hg. Conclusions: The target values of ABPM identified in this study can be used in clinical practice and will contribute to risk stratification and treatment of hypertension.
