Last week our family practitioner recommended to my wife that she purchase a home blood pressure device and start monitoring her blood pressure.
Too many of us are walking around like ticking time bombs unaware that in the middle of our chest our hearts on under severe pressure. I was lucky I had some symptoms, most people don’t and they drop dead from a heart attack or stroke. My recommendation buy a home blood pressure measuring machine.
How should you choose a device? According to the American Heart Association you should follow these guidelines.
- Choose a validated monitor. Make sure the monitor has been tested, validated and approved by the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation, the British Hypertension Society and the International Protocol for the Validation of Automated BP Measuring Devices.
- Ensure the monitor is suitable for your special needs. When selecting a blood pressure monitor for the elderly, pregnant women or children, make sure it is validated for these conditions.
- Make sure the cuff fits. Children and adults with smaller or larger than average-sized arms may need special-sized cuffs. They are available in some pharmacies, from medical supply companies and by direct order from companies that sell blood pressure cuffs. Measure around your upper arm and choose a monitor that comes with the correct size cuff.
