Abstract Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) is a helpful tool to comprehensively identify and diagnose arterial hypertension. Moreover, it allows to better identify alterations in the circadian BP profile, as the nocturnal “nondipping” status, characterized by a lack of the physiological 10% night BP reduction and associated with a greater risk of target organ damage. However, ABPM has some limitations such as restricted availability, discomfort, particularly at night, cost implications, and reproducibility. Aim of the study was evaluate if the “nondipping” phenomenon may be related to low degree of tolerance to ABPM. Additionally, to determine whether ...
