The systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP) and pulse pressure (PP) daily profiles incidence was studied in 53 patients with arterial hypertension. A significant difference in the frequency of occurrence of different types of SBP, DBP and PP daily profile was revealed. In the structure of SBP daily profile «nondipper» and «dipper» types were dominated, DBP - «dipper» and «overdipper» types, PP - «night-picker» type. The conclusion about the need to evaluate not only the SBP circadian pattern, but DBP and PP also to improve the quality of arterial hypertension diagnosis, prognosis and treatment was made.
