24-hour blood pressure monitoring
The aim of monitoring your blood pressure for 24 hours is to investigate the level of your blood pressure for a longer period of time, which gives a more accurate picture.

About the examination
The blood pressure device is portable and consists of an armband, which is placed on the upper arm throughout the entire monitoring period and a monitor, which you can carry on your belt. The device takes blood pressure readings four times an hour during the day and twice an hour at night.
You will feel the armband inflate around your upper arm, but the examination is otherwise painless.
Make sure to carry out your normal daily activities (working, riding your bicycle, walking, sports etc.). However, the reading can be affected if the arm is used excessively during a reading. Try to relax your arm as much as possible, while the armband is being inflated.
