To date, despite the improved approach to managing patients with AH, control of blood pressure remains unsatisfactory in some categories of patients. This problem is particularly topical in AH combined with COPD depending on the peculiarities of the course and difficulty in their diagnosis. Thanks to the use of 24-hour monitoring method, it is possible to objectify the true blood pressure profile during the day and diagnose AH at a qualitatively new level. In patients with a combination of AH and COPD, there are certain features of the clinical course that can be determined with the use of 24-hour BP monitoring. A direct relationship between the profile of blood pressure, the clinical groups of COPD, as well as the time of its onset regarding hypertension was revealed.
