Question

  1. What is the comparative clinical effectiveness of automated versus manual blood pressure monitoring in patients with hypertension or suspected hypertension in the community setting?
  2. What is the cost-effectiveness of automated versus manual blood pressure monitoring in patients with hypertension or suspected hypertension in the community setting?
  3. What are the evidence-based guidelines associated with the use of automated compared with manual blood pressure monitoring in patients with hypertension or suspected hypertension in the community setting?

Key Message

One systematic review, three randomized controlled trials, four non-randomized studies, and four evidence-based guidelines were identified comparing the use of automated versus manual blood pressure monitoring in patients with hypertension or suspected hypertension in the community setting.
