Katrin Uhlig i wsp – Self-Measured Blood Pressure Monitoring in the Management of Hypertension: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis Ann Intern Med. 2013;159:185
For self-measured blood pressure (SMBP) monitoring plus additional support versus usual care (25 comparisons), high-strength evidence supports a lower BP with use of SMBP monitoring, ranging from −3.4 to −8.9 mm Hg for systolic BP and from −1.9 to −4.4 mm Hg for diastolic BP, at 12 months in good-quality studies.

Conclusion: Self-measured BP monitoring with or without additional support lowers BP compared with usual care, but the BP effect beyond 12 months and long-term benefits remain uncertain. Additional support enhances the BP-lowering effect.
