Your blood pressure reads higher at a clinic than in other settings. Many thought white coat hypertension was simply stress or nerves, but a recent study suggests there may be more to it.

Ambulatory blood pressure monitors are mainly used for indications such as white-coat hypertension, nocturnal hypertension, masked hypertension, and episodic hypertension. The devices are also used to monitor patients at major risk of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events linked to hypertension.

Ammar says the study suggests someone with white coat hypertension might benefit from 24-hour monitoring of blood pressure outside a clinic. But he adds that requires a quality blood pressure monitor (not the cuff or finger type you’d find at a drug store), and that any outside monitoring should be done in conjunction with a physician.
