Self-Measured Blood Pressure Monitoring
Knowledge Gaps and Future Research Needs (1 of 3)
Most of the studies included in this review were heterogeneous in the SMBP monitoring and additional support strategies used and had a followup duration of <1 year. Future trials with more uniform and well-defined SMBP monitoring and additional support strategies and with followup beyond 12 months would help clarify the effectiveness of these strategies, particularly in the long term.
Studies on children with high BP were lacking. Additionally, current research also provides limited evidence on the correlation between BP control with SMBP monitoring and clinical and surrogate outcomes. It is hoped that this will be addressed in future studies.
