We performed a cross-sectional study in a small town in northern Japan to evaluate the distribution, reference values, and daily variation in ambulatory blood pressure.
A total of 705 subjects (229 men aged 61.3+-13.4 years [mean+-SD] and 476 women aged 57.5+-13.3 years; 41.1% of the regional adult population, n=1716), including those treated with antihypertensive drugs (n=231, 66.5+-9.5 years) as well as untreated subjects (n=474, 55.0+-13.5 years), participated in the study.
Both ambulatory and screening blood pressures were measured in 659 subjects.
Ambulatory blood pressure was measured with an automatic device (Colin ABPM-630).
The 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure in the total population was 121.7+-13.0/71.1+-7.6 mm Hg (95th percentile value [95%]=146/85 mm Hg).
