Self-Measured Blood Pressure Monitoring

Slide: 15 of 27

Comparative Effectiveness of SMBP Monitoring Versus Usual Care (1 of 2)

There is a moderate strength of evidence that SMBP alone improved BP control by a small amount when compared with usual care.

Meta-analyses showed that, at 6 months, SMBP monitoring yielded a modest but statistically significant net reduction of 3.1 mmHg in clinic systolic BP and a net reduction of 2.0 mmHg in clinic diastolic BP when compared with usual care. At 12 months, SMBP monitoring yielded a net reduction of 1.2 mmHg in clinic systolic BP and a net reduction of 0.8 mm Hg in clinic diastolic BP when compared with usual care. The net reductions in systolic BP and diastolic BP at 12 months were, however, not statistically significant.
