Overview

Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in developed countries, including Slovakia. Arterial hypertension, as well as coronary heart disease, are often associated within patient´s polymorbidity. The methods of ambulatory blood pressure monitoring as well as ambulatory ECG monitoring, significantly help in the management of patients with these diseases. Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring is often used in the diagnosis of arterial hypertension, in checking the effectiveness of treatment and determining diurnal index is important as a prognostic point of view. Ambulatory ECG monitoring is especially useful in the detection and quantification of arrhythmias and objectivisation of symptoms which can be correlated with the ECG, both arrhythmias or myocardial ischemia.

Key words:
ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) – ambulatory ECG monitoring (Holter ECG) – diurnal index – indications – investigated parameters – patient´s polymorbidity
