Upper limit of normal ambulatory blood pressure monitoring values. Normal ambulatory blood pressure during the day is <135/<85 mm Hg and <120/<70 mm Hg at night. Levels above 140/90 mm Hg during the day and 125/75 mm Hg at night should be considered as abnormal.
According to these recommendations, normal 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure is defined as less than 130/80 mm Hg. Concurrently, normal daytime and nighttime blood pressure levels are defined as less than 135/85 mm Hg and less than 120/70 mm Hg, respectively.

The ABPM device is worn for either 24 or 48 hours, and it records your blood pressure periodically (usually at 15-minute or 30-minute intervals) throughout that period. So the ABPM provides your doctor with a complete record of your blood pressure for a one- or two-day period.
An ambulatory blood pressure that corresponds to an office blood pressure of 140/90 may be roughly in the range of 120–130/75–85. However, these values represent population means, and it is not possible to apply these conversions to an individual patient.
Sep 04, 2018 · Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (ABPM) is a diagnostic test to determine the presence of hypertension by taking measurements during normal daily activities, over a span of 24 consecutive hours.
What is 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring? Twenty-four-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring is a way of measuring and managing high blood pressure (hypertension).

the level of normal ambulatory blood pressure.3–5 Addition-ally, the prognostic value of ABPM was evaluated in different highly selected hypertensive populations.6–8 However, there is still a lack of data that compare ABPM and clinic blood pressure in a moderate to severe hypertensive population.
Ambulatory blood-pressure data provide a more comprehensive assessment of blood pressure over the course of a day and have been reported to better predict health outcomes than blood pressure
