View Public Comments for Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (ABPM) (CAG-00067R2)

Bentall, Andrew

I support the improved access for patients with hypertension or assessment of hypertension with ambulatory blood pressure monitoring. It will have an impact on diagnosis and improving long term outcomes.

Improving the diagnosis of patients with BP monitoring will allow reduce burden of disease - particular cardiovascular and renal disease.

Patients with hypertension have struggled to get approved for driving license which then affects their income - where a BP monitoring would give better information - particularly when there is significant discrepancy between office and home BP.
