New research findings based on ambulatory and self-monitoring of blood pressure and heart rate have signaled the maturation of cardiovascular chronobiology and led to marked improvements in the physician's ability to detect various clinical entities in those patients suffering from hypertension and vascular diseases. In Blood Pressure Monitoring in Cardiovascular Medicine and Therapeutics, William B. White, MD, and a panel of highly experienced clinicians critically review every aspect of out-of-office evaluation of blood pressure, including home and ambulatory pressure, the relationship between whole-day blood pressure and the cardiovascular disease process, and the effects of numerous antihypertensive therapies on these blood pressure parameters. The world-class opinion leaders writing here describe all the significant advances in our understanding of the circadian pathophysiology of cardiovascular disorders and demonstrate that ambulatory blood pressure values are independent predictors of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. They also discuss the methodology of out-of-office blood pressure monitoring, its potential in clinical trials and the general management of patients, and its usefulness during antihypertensive drug development. Comprehensive and leading-edge, Blood Pressure Monitoring in Cardiovascular Medicine and Therapeutics provides a ground-breaking demonstration of the importance of home and ambulatory blood pressure monitoring that is already being rapidly translated into better care for millions of hypertensives today
