Proper Monitoring of Blood Pressure
Combination of Home Blood Pressure Monitoring & Doctor Visits Keeps The Numbers You Need to Know In Check
New Trials Shed Light On Monitoring Tips To Follow During February, American Heart Month
Bannockburn, Ill – A recent research review has concluded that home blood pressure monitors can help people keep their blood pressure in check and possibly cut down on medication – as long as patients and their doctors put those home readings to good use. For years, Omron Healthcare, Inc. has reminded Americans how important home blood pressure monitoring is when it comes to reducing their risk of a heart attack or stroke, and truly wants people to take the news to heart in 2011.
In fact, the American Heart Association (AHA) recommends people with high blood pressure should purchase an accurate monitor and take regular readings at home. With a home monitor, blood pressure readings are made easier and can be used in tandem with those from the doctor’s office. In short, a combination of proper readings at home and in the doctor’s office can successfully manage high blood pressure.
Blood Pressure Doesn’t Affect Me, Right?
Omron Healthcare has been committed to developing not only validated monitors, but monitors that fit all lifestyles, and this is especially important for people searching for a monitor they can easily use.
making it easier than ever to do just that.
What is Clinical Validation for a Blood Pressure Monitor?
One of the most common questions we hear is “What does clinical validation mean?”. When you see a "Clinically Validated for Accuracy" symbol on an A&D product, it means that the product has been thoroughly tested and has stood up to the medical industry's world-class protocols.
The clinical validation tests verify the accuracy of the device according to certain criteria, like whether they have high, low, or normal blood pressure, and pre-existing diseases. Essentially, this means that the blood pressure monitor has been confirmed to give accurate and reliable results.
The ability to check your blood pressure easily, wherever you are, is essential not only to your health but to your peace of mind. When you do, it's important to have complete reassurance that your numbers are accurate.
Get portability, convenience, and complete blood pressure accuracy right out of the box so you can go about your day with confidence. The accuracy of all OMRON blood pressure monitors—both upper arm and wrist models—is validated by three major global organizations that develop testing protocols.
