Abstract

In this study, a method of taking one blood pressure reading using a sphygmomanometer was compared with a method of taking multiple successive reading using an automatic device. With multiple readings the blood pressure tended to be lower and fewer patients were classified as hypertensive. Using an automatic blood pressure recording device seems to be a practical way of achieving multiple readings in a busy clinic setting.
