Abstract

Blood pressure (BP) load, defined as the percentage of abnormally elevated BP readings, is usually provided on the report of ambulatory BP monitoring. However, the usefulness of BP load is still uncertain. In the present study, we examined whether BP load would be associated, independently of BP level, with target organ damage.
