The study was aimed at analysing the sphygmochron, a 24-hour blood pressure record based on a computer comparison of a given subject's data with time-specified reference limits of clinically healthy peers of the same gender and age. Sphygmochrons provide, by complementary (parametric and nonparametric) approaches, an inferential statistical basis for the diagnosis of blood pressure disorders. A sphygmochron may further be used to indicate the need for therapy and the timing of treatment and assessment of its effects.
