Blood Pressure Monitor

Posted: 2018-06-07 17:18

                                          One of the most common health issues that millions of people suffer from is High Blood Pressure. It has even been called the silent killer

                                          at times due to the fact that there isn’t always a sign that things are not as they should be. By the timer symptoms start, the levels are

                                          usually way beyond the borderline limit. If you have been diagnosed with high blood pressure, or you suspect that you may have it you

                                          may want to consider purchasing a blood pressure monitor. A blood pressure monitor is a device that goes around the upper arm that

                                          provides a blood pressure reading for the user.

                                          If you do decide to measure your blood pressure at home, you will need to get a home blood pressure monitor. There is a wide range of

                                          home blood pressure monitors available, but it is important to be sure that the blood pressure monitor you choose is accurate and the

                                          right one for you.

                                          Arterial pressure is most commonly measured via a sphygmomanometer, which historically used the height of a column of mercury to

                                          reflect the circulating pressure. The most common automated blood pressure measurement technique is based on the so-called

                                          "oscillometric" method. Blood pressure values are generally reported in millimetres of mercury (mmHg), though aneroid and electronic

                                          devices do not contain mercury. Fluctuating blood pressure or blood pressure that is chronically too high or too low will at best only impair

                                          a person’s quality of life. But unfortunately the consequences are typically extensive secondary damage to vital organs like the heart or the

                                          kidneys. Conventional electronic measuring devices for blood pressure monitoring only provide snapshot information at the time a single

                                          reading is taken, rather than blood pressure profiles over a period of several hours or days.

                                          For each heartbeat, blood pressure varies between systolic and diastolic pressures. Systolic pressure is peak pressure in the arteries, which

                                          occurs near the end of the cardiac cycle when the ventricles are contracting. An example of normal measured values for a resting, healthy

                                          adult human is 120 mmHg systolic and 80 mmHg diastolic (written as 120/80 mmHg, and spoken as "one-twenty over eighty").

                                          All you need to measure your blood pressure correctly is a clinically validated monitor, and a pen and paper to record your readings. Extra

                                          features can be helpful but they are not necessary. Choose a home blood pressure monitor that you can afford.
