Long-term maintenance interventions needed for sustained blood pressure control | Research briefing

Research has shown that the benefits of an intensive telemonitoring protocol for blood pressure (BP) control lasted for up to a year after the end of the intervention[1].

The findings came from a long-term follow-up of 326 patients with uncontrolled hypertension who took part in a telemonitoring trial. They had been randomly assigned to receive either home BP telemonitoring and regular telephone appointments with a pharmacist, or usual care for 12 months.
