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

Abreu, Milagros

It is important to support ABPM, as more and more individuals need an appropriate diagnosis of hypertension in other to help healthcare providers to better follow-up and treat these newly diagnosed patients. I have worked for more than 20 years with minority populations, which have high prevalence on hypertension with devastating effects, when they have not been treated timely due to lack of knowledge or for not having an early diagnosis of this condition. By getting more providers compensated we will increase the number of individuals early treated and managed, so we can reduce complications for hypertension.
