Automesure tensionnelle pratique en soins primaires: étude MEGAMET enquête téléphonique nationale auprès de 546 médecins généralistes de mai à août 2004

Abstract : Background: the ESH guidelines and HAS 2005 guidelines recommend the use of home blood pressure monitoring (HBPM) for the management of arterial hypertension.Objectives : to evaluate the percentage of General Practitioners (GPs) using HBPM and compare what they do with what the international guidelines recommend. Method : national phone survey (with a 14-item questionnaire), in which 546 GPs were included between May and August 2004. Results : 511 GPs answered. 30% of GPs did not use HBPM, because of method unreliability (62%), patient's anxiety (67%) and technical difficulties (30%).70% ofGPs used HBPM, 35% rarely or very occasionally, 35% often or as often as possible. Recommended measurement guidelines were hardly followed. Only 4% of GPs had 3 consecutive morning and evening measurements done for at least 3 days. Conclusion : French GPs rarely used HBPM and proper implementation of guidelines was poor in 2004. Multifaceted interventions aimed at educating GPs and patients about the use of HBPM are necessary to enhance blood pressure monitoring and improve the compliance of patients suffering from hypertension to HBPM.
