Self-Measured Blood Pressure Monitoring
Comparative Effectiveness of SMBP Monitoring With or Without Additional Support (2 of 2)
There was no difference between SMBP with additional support versus SMBP without additional support or with less-intensive additional support for health care encounters. None of the five studies that reported on health care encounters found a difference in the numbers of outpatient visits or hospital admissions between patients receiving SMBP with or without additional support. Despite the consistency across trials, the overall strength of evidence was rated as low because of the small number and the poor quality of the studies.
