Since indirect methods of measuring blood pressure were introduced into clinical practice at the end of the last century, many investigators have studied the variations in blood pressure occurring during the day and over longer periods (cf. summaries of the literature by Menzel, 1961, 1962; and Richardson et al., 1964). The earliest studies, e.g. the findings of Zadek, published in 1881, were of limited value, owing to the technical inadequacy of the apparatus available; in others, the blood pressure was measured only at fairly long intervals, or not consistently over 24 hours. Although the results are divergent in a few cases, most of these investigations reveal that blood pressure may vary considerably, not only from day to day, but also in the course of one and the same day, the lowest values appearing during the night and the highest in the morning or, as is more frequently the case, in the early evening. The following factors, however, which may well exert an influence on the results, were left unconsidered by all but a few of the investigators: 1) the presence of an observer to make the measurements, 2) subjective errors that are inherent in the auscultatory method of blood-pressure determination, and 3) the possibility that sleep might be disturbed by the process of measurement.
