24-Hour Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (24- H ABPM, ABPM) plays an important role in the management of subjects with suspected and proven disorders of blood pressure regulation. This article aims to make 24-H ABPM easier to understand and interpret by the interested General Practitioner.

In order to handle minor surgery specimens as they are cut from the surrounding skin a variety of instruments can be utilised. The requirements for the histopathologist are very different to those for the surgeon. For the surgeon a secure, manoeuvrable and easily handled instrument is ideal. However the histopathologist requires a specimen free of crush artefact. In addition tension applied by the surgeon to the instrument may well cause the specimen to tear thereby destroying the histological appearance.
