Background: SMBP Monitoring Devices

Types of SMBP monitoring devices include “manual” devices, “semiautomated” devices, and “automated” devices. Many devices are commercially available and have been validated by leading organizations such as the American Association of Medical Instrumentation, the European Society of Hypertension, and the British Hypertension Society. Depending on the type of SMBP monitoring device, patients may need instruction or training on how to use the device.
