Beat-to-beat BP recordings) before, during, and after the medical visit [1, 2] which prevents it to be obtained routinely either in a clinical setting or in population studies. To overcome these difficulties, alternative, indirect approaches for estimation of the alarm reaction to the medical visit, based on discontinuous ambulatory BP recordings, have been proposed. The most popular of these indirect methods for the assessment of the WCE consists in the straightforward estimation of the difference between clinic BP and average daytime ambulatory BP levels (measured either with ambulatory or home BP monitoring) [3, 4].
An additional question, of conceptual and terminological relevance, concerns the relationship between WCH and the so-called borderline hypertension. , SBP 120–139 and/or DBP 80–89 mmHg).

A critical condition for the diagnosis of WCH or isolated office hypertension is the occurrence of a persistent BP elevation at the time of consultation and of normal out-of office BP levels over time.
