Study Completion Date: August 2011
Primary Completion Date: August 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

Two 24hour ambulatory blood pressure monitorings, 4 to 6 months apart, will be performed on hypertensive subjects on a stable antihypertensive drug therapy for at least 4 weeks.

The correlation of weather and temperature with the 24hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring will be explored.
