Impact of successive office blood pressure measurements during a single visit on cardiovascular risk prediction: analysis of CARTaGENE

Authors: Louis-Charles Desbiens, Annie-Claire Nadeau-Fredette, François Madore, Mohsen Agharazii, Rémi Goupil

The researchers sought to assess the long-term impact of multiple office blood pressure (BP) readings and whether they improve cardiovascular risk prediction. Using data from CARTaGENE participants, they found that cardiovascular risk prediction is improved by successive office systolic BP values, especially when the first reading is discarded. These findings reinforce the necessity of using multiple office BP readings.
