Nocturnal hypertension

Nocturnal is the behavior characterized by being active during the night. Nocturnal blood pressure is the blood pressure measured during bedtime to arising or between 1 am and 6 am by ABPM or home blood pressure.
Nocturnal hypertension is diagnosed by the average of nocturnal BPs
>125/75 mmHg. The value was suggested by American Heart Association.

This threshold was lowered by the European Society of Hypertension updated practice guidelines that considered a nighttime blood pressure of greater than 120/70 mmHg to be abnormal.

Nocturnal hypertension is also an independent risk factor for cardiovascular morbidity.
