As shown in Fig. 8, the survival rate was significantly lower for people whose initial home pressure was greater than 138 mmHg systolic and 83 mmHg diastolic pressure (79). As also shown in the figure, the consequences of a high clinic pressure were less clear.

As with office blood pressure, a lower home blood pressure goal is advisable for certain patients, including diabetics, pregnant women, and patients with renal failure. No specific limits have been set for these patients, however.
