Blood Pressure Control

We have led a series of studies into the potential for patient self-monitoring in hypertension, and of the principal drivers for Stroke, called TASMINH. TASMINH2 trial ( Greenfield, Holder) was fast-tracked for publication in the Lancet and fed directly into new NICE guidance on diagnosing hypertension. The BP-Eth study (Gill, Greenfield) is investigating whether differences between different modes of blood pressure measurement are equivalent between different ethnic groups (White British, White Irish, South Asian, African Caribbean)
