For which differentiation we have the long name of the test

Display may still present them as SBP/DBP.

Note that GnuMed also makes it possible to aggregate various
types of BP measurements under a single test type - or several
aggregate test super types even with overlapping contributing
types... So one might define "all BP", "in-house BP",
"right-arm in-house BP", "external BP" etc etc.
