Self-Monitored Blood Pressure Program

The Self-Measured Blood Pressure (SMBP) program is a program in which participants measure their blood pressure outside of the doctor’s office or other health care settings. The SMBP program allows participants ages 18 years or older to measure their blood pressure at different times throughout the day and over a longer period of time. This monitoring helps our providers get an in-depth understanding of your blood pressure readings to help diagnose and manage hypertension or pre-hypertension.

What to Expect

Participants will receive education on how to properly measure and record their blood pressure. They will also receive guidance on what an expected blood pressure range should be and when they should seek immediate medical care.

Program participants are expected to measure their blood pressure and record the measurements twice a day for a minimum of two weeks. Participants may be able to use their own equipment, but if needed, the participants can also borrow equipment from Madison Regional Health System. If you choose to use your own, the SMBP program team will need to check the device for accuracy. Participants will receive a check-in phone call from the SMBP program team. During this phone call, your follow-up appointment will be scheduled. During the follow-up appointment, the recordings will be reviewed and recommendations will be provided. For more information, please call 605-256-6551.
