Out-of-office and central blood pressure for risk stratification: a cross-sectional study in patients treated for hypertension
Background Central blood pressure (BP) predicts mortality independent of office brachial BP. Whether central BP may be useful to differentiate BP control requires examination and was the first aim of this study. Secondly, we sought to determine the variability in central BP among patients from different categories of BP control [controlled hypertension (CH), masked hypertension (MH), white coat (WCHT) and uncontrolled hypertension (UH)].
