Blood pressure monitor picked up two blips from my heart during 24 hour test. ECG is next.Blood pressure is 133 over 80. Should i worry about blips ?

In brief: Need 2 B Defined.

Those blips need to be defined.
For example, if they're PVCs, and you only had two in a 24 hour period, that could be just fine. The Heart rate monitor (Holter monitor or event recorder) would be the next step to qualify those blips better. That being said, the BP is a bit higher than I'd like to see.
