Thijs and colleagues1 recently reported a meta-analysis of self-recorded blood pressure (BP) values. Given the convenience and increasing use of inexpensive automatic BP monitors, the long-term reliability of self-measured BP is of importance. Thus, we examined the 4-year test-retest reliability of home self-measured BP, which is considered less likely to be influenced by differential reactivity ("white-coat effect") to laboratory or clinical settings.2
