Abstract

To determine ambulatory blood pressure (BP) means and distributions in an elderly population, we studied a random sample of 800 subjects stratified by sex and representative of residents aged 65 to 74 years of the city of Monza. Participation was 51%. Measurements consisted of clinic BP (average of three measurements with mercury sphygmomanometry), home BP (average of morning and evening measurements with a semiautomatic device), and ambulatory BP (SpaceLabs 90207). Clinic BP was obtained before and after home and ambulatory BP measurements. In normotensive and untreated hypertensive subjects (n=248), clinic, home, and ambulatory BPs were significantly related (P
