1 in 4 people with controlled daytime blood pressure may have nocturnal hypertension. Most ‘non-dippers’ and ‘reverse dippers’ remain undetected, although they are the cohort of hypertensive patients with the highest risk of developing future cardiovascular events. Blood pressure readings are mostly taken during the day. However, nocturnal BP readings (those taken while the patient is sleeping at night) are better predictors of the risk of fatal and nonfatal cardiovascular events, and target organ damage than daytime blood pressure values
