Thijs and coauthors1 recently proposed reference values for self-recorded blood pressure (BP). Brody and colleagues2 examined the test-retest reliability of at-home self-measured BP with an automatic device (AUD). These authors concluded that the at-home AUD measurements may be reliable when multiple readings are taken by trained patients and that the use of AUDs may be adequate for clinical and research purposes.
