Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring

The pharmacy is still the heart of our business.

What is ambulatory blood pressure monitoring?

Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) is a process in which you are fitted with a blood pressure cuff and a portable monitor to allow for a full 24 hours of blood pressure measurements.

How you can benefit from ambulatory blood pressure monitoring

ABPM allows you to measure your blood pressure over a 24-hour period as you go about your daily activities, like working, exercising, eating, and sleeping. This gives your healthcare providers the most clear and thorough picture of your blood pressure. ABPM also helps to prevent so-called "white coat syndrome" - that's an elevated measurement some people get when their blood pressure is recorded in their physician's office.

How to use this service

  • Get a physician's referral. In order to use the ABPM service, you must first get a referral from your physician.

  • Set up an appointment. It's best to call ahead to set up an appointment since ABPM requires a fitting and some orientation with a member of our pharmacy team. A fee applies for this service.

  • Prepare for your appointment. You will be fitted with a blood pressure arm cuff, so come to your ABPM appointment dressed in clothing that bares your upper arm or that is loose enough to be rolled to the upper arm. Take a shower or bathe before coming in for your appointment since you should not remove the cuff during the 24-hour monitoring period.

  • Ask questions. A London Drugs Pharmacy staff member will instruct you in the safe and proper use of your blood pressure monitoring cuff. Be sure to ask any questions you have about the cuff and its monitor, as well as about follow-up with your physician.
