The study revealed that 21% of the doctors surveyed had masked hypertension or isolated ambulatory hypertension. In simple terms, their BP readings were normal when evaluated through the conventional clinic measurement technique but high through the ABPM technique. Additionally, 56% per cent of the doctors evaluated suffered from irregular BP pattern at night, making them prone to future adverse cardiac events. Besides, 37% doctors had nocturnal hypertension, which can never be diagnosed through in-clinic BP measurement. Owing to high stress levels, over 50% physicians had uncontrolled hypertension, despite taking hypertensive medicines.
