Home blood pressure monitoring on the rise, but disparities seen

The rate of US adults who monitored their blood pressure at home at least monthly increased from 21.7% in 2009 to 2010 to 25.5% in 2013 to 2014, researchers told an American Heart Association meeting. People without a high-school diploma or a partner were less likely to do home monitoring, while those who had high blood pressure, knew they had high blood pressure or were being treated for hypertension were more likely to check their BP at home.
