N2 - New technology means that self-measurement or testing of blood pressure ( BP) is potentially available for many people but few data exist on how common it is. A community survey in Birmingham, UK in June 2005 ( 2931 responders; response rate 54%) of self-testing of BP showed that 9% of a randomly selected population sample had self-tested their own BP. Greater public awareness of BP through self-testing has the potential to improve the detection and treatment of BP but this will only be possible if professionals are aware of it.
