There are abundant evidences for the variability of blood pressure, yet reliance is placed on too few measurements for decisions about treatment. Today, blood pressure is measured beat-to-beat for most of the lifetime of most laboratory animals. Percent time elevation (PTE) and hyperbaric index (HBI) can be calculated by considering their distribution. Time-specified reference values (chronodesms) are derived for rhythm parameters and are not restricted to serial blood pressure measurements.
