Term Description

Average (mean) Blood Pressure (systolic and diastolic) is the average of two or more blood pressure (BP) readings in a specified time period or according to a specified algorithm or protocol. During clinical encounters 2 or more BPs should be averaged to more accurately assess a person's BP status. When patients are self-monitoring blood pressure (SMBP), the American Heart Association recommends a minimum of 12 readings collected over at least 3 days should be averaged to more accurately assess a person's BP status (, PMID: 30827125). According to the European Society of Hypertension , "The adverse cardiovascular consequences of hypertension, including events and mortality, largely depend on increased average BP values. Thus, decision-making in hypertension is based on average values of several BP readings obtained in and out of the office" (, PMID: 33710173).
