Home blood pressure (BP) monitoring is endorsed in multiple guidelines as a valuable adjunct to office BP measurements for the  diagnosis  and management of hyperten- sion. In many countries throughout Asia, physicians  are yet to appreciate the  significant  contribution of BP variability to cardiovascular events. Furthermore, data  from Japanese cohort studies have shown  that  there is a strong  association between morn- ing BP surge and cardiovascular events, suggesting that  Asians in general  may benefit from more effective control of morning BP. We designed the Asia BP@Home study to investigate the  distribution of hypertension subtypes, including white- coat  hyperten- sion, masked  morning  hypertension, and  well-controlled and  uncontrolled hyperten- sion.  The  study  will also  investigate the  determinants of  home  BP control   status evaluated by the  same  validated home  BP monitoring device  and the  same  standard- ized method of home BP measurement among 1600 or more medicated patients with hypertension from 12 countries/regions across Asia.
