Research indicates that 1 in 5 children found to be hypertensive by ambulatory monitoring would be missed by clinical and self measurements.

The AHA recommends that monitoring be done only by those with special training and that devices be programmed to record BP every 20 to 30 minutes during waking hours and every 30 to 60 minutes during sleep.
