Self-Measured Blood Pressure Monitoring

Slide: 22 of 27

Conclusions (1 of 2)

SMBP alone, when compared to usual care, yielded a net reduction in clinic systolic BP and diastolic BP at 6 months and at 12 months. Meta-analysis showed that the net reduction in systolic BP and diastolic BP was statistically significant at 6 months but not at 12 months.

SMBP monitoring, in conjunction with some form of additional support strategy, resulted in a consistently greater BP reduction up to 12 months, when compared to usual care. Given the wide variability in the additional support strategy used in the studies reviewed, the effectiveness of one strategy relative to the other could not be determined.
