Role of ambulatory blood pressure monitoring in management of hypertension in patients with chronic kidney disease on hemodialysis

Author(s): Mogal Vajed

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is strongly associated with hypertension (HTN) and each can cause or aggravate the other. Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) is a superior prognostic marker compared with office BP and has successfully identified hypertensive CKD patients at increased risk.
