Review of: Sharman JE, Blizzard L, Kosmala W, Nelson MR. Pragmatic method using blood pressure diaries to assess blood pressure control. Ann Fam Med. 2016; 14(1):63–69. This study provides some guidance on how to use home BP measurements to manage a patient's hypertension. If a patient has more than 30% of home readings elevated, there is an increased likelihood their BP is uncontrolled and adjustments to their medications may be warranted.
