The Camerano Study on Arterial Hypertension (AH) is a cross-sectional study, carried out on a wide population sample in a small town in Central Italy, and aimed at revealing the prevalence of certain characteristics of AH in the population examined. In particular, we studied some aspects of blood pressure (BP) levels during the medical visits. To evaluate the effects of the medical visit on BP levels, we divided the subjects into 3 groups: I) Hypertensive subjects, II) Treated hypertensive subjects, III) Normotensive subjects (control group). The Systolic Arterial Pressure (SAP) in normotensive subjects reached maximum levels during the first medical visit and then decreased in the following two controls (p
