What is self-measured blood pressure (SMBP)?

SMBP is when you measure your blood pressure outside of the doctor’s office or other health care settings.

Why do I need to measure my blood pressure if it was already measured at the doctor’s office?

SMBP allows you to measure at different times throughout the day and over a longer period of time, helping your doctor get a more complete picture of your blood pressure.

How does SMBP help me with my health?

By using SMBP, you and your care team can come up with a treatment plan to better control your blood pressure. This can prevent more serious health problems.
