Examination Map | Proncor Hospital
Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (ABPM) is the test that measures blood pressure every 20 minutes, for 24 hours, to obtain the blood pressure record during wakefulness and sleep. It aims to analyze the behavior of blood pressure not only during waking and sleeping, but also during possible symptoms such as dizziness, chest pain and fainting. In addition, it makes it possible to assess the effectiveness of antihypertensive treatment.

How the Map Exam is done
On the scheduled day and time, the equipment is installed on the patient, who remains with him for 24 hours. The equipment consists of a light and small monitor - placed on the waist - which is connected by a thin plastic tube to a cuff placed on the non-dominant arm, unless there is a contraindication.
Every 20 minutes the monitor inflates the cuff and records the pressure obtained. After 24 hours, the patient returns to the examination site to remove the equipment. The monitor is connected to the computer and a software specially built for this function draws a graph of the pressures recorded in the 24 hours. The exam must be carried out on a day representative of your daily activity. Thus, it is essential to maintain routine activities.
The patient will be provided with a form called an “activity diary” where the times when he slept, woke up, had lunch, had dinner, as well as any symptoms and important activities or events should be noted.
