Abstract

Reliability and reproducibility of a new automatic ambulatory blood pressure recorder were tested on 31 subjects (18 normotensives and 13 hypertensives). Of 3688 recordings, 1424 measurements were cross-checked with a sphygmomanometer in standing or sitting position at the beginning and at the end of a twenty-four hour monitoring period. In the normotensive subjects cross-checkings were performed also during a treadmill exercise stress test. Analysis of variance did not indicate statistical differences between the two types of measurement (p>0.09 for systolic and p>0.62 for diastolic), and a significant linear correlation was found at rest (r=0.99, p
