High blood pressure may drop in doctor's office

NEW YORK, Jun 26 (Reuters Health) - It is well known that some people experience a rise in blood pressure in the doctor's office, and may be incorrectly diagnosed with hypertension--even though they have normal blood pressure most of the time. Now, results of a study suggest that some patients who actually do have high blood pressure during their daily lives appear to have normal pressure at the doctor's office.
This phenomenon, called 'white coat normotension' (normal blood pressure) in contrast to the more widely known 'white coat hypertension,' or high blood pressure, poses a significant risk to patients, according to Dr. Wolfgang Linden of the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, and colleagues. Many people who think they have normal blood pressure may actually have hypertension.

I suggest: "normotension due à l'effet blouse blanche"


Explanation:
It is well known that blood pressure measurements can vary. Some people will have high blood pressure (hypertension) when they are in a doctor's office but normal blood pressure when measured in other settings. Doctors use the term "white coat hypertension" to describe this occurrence, since the blood pressure is only high when the patient sees the doctor and doctors often wear white coats when they see patients. It is also possible that a person could have normal blood pressures in the doctor's office but have high blood pressure at other times ("white coat normotension"). People whose blood pressure is high more often than it is normal are at increased risk for heart disease and strokes.
