Figure 2: Percent of accurate readings of physicians, nurses, and CVTs with and without a white lab coat compared to control ABPM. This graph shows a comparison between the percent of accurate readings of various health care providers, defined as BP readings within 5 mmHg of the daytime readings of a 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitor. Health care providers measured the blood pressure twice using a standardized method; once with a white lab coat, and once without. These results are displayed in separate columns. Abbreviations- ABPM: Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitor, BP: Blood Pressure, CVTs: Technicians, mmHg: Millimeters of Mercury.
