Is ‘time at target’ a useful concept for controlling blood pressure?

Notably, only 0.6 percent of patients achieved a time at target (TITRE) above 11 months per year. The median TITRE among all patients was 2.8 months.

But for those achieving a TITRE of even three to six months, the risk of cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction and stroke was cut by 75 percent compared to those who remained outside the target range for the duration of the study. It was dropped an additional three percent for those who had a TITRE of six to nine months.
