Checking your blood pressure on a regular basis may not be a priority for you, but there are several statistical reasons you should start paying some mind to it. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) asserts:
- One of three adults in America have high blood pressure.
- High blood pressure is the primary or contributing cause of about 1,000 American deaths a day.
- High blood pressure can be the root cause of medical conditions like heart attacks, strokes, blindness and kidney failure.
Thankfully, technology has rendered it possible to accurately check your blood pressure on your own. You no longer need to drive all the way to a pharmacy or wait until your annual check-up to monitor your blood pressure. In this case, you are your very own medical professional, and the ChoiceMMed BP10 digital blood pressure monitor is the perfect tool. With an automatic inflation feature, it has the ability to detect systolic/diastolic BP, pulse rate and irregular heartbeats at a single push of a button.
For maximal accuracy, each reading is computed with the device’s 3 most recent results, and precision extends even to adults and older adults with conditions like glycuresis, hyperlipaemia and hypertension. In addition, this BP monitor saves up to 120 readings, including the date and time of each reading. This not only helps you keep track of your health and progress but it also provides a record for doctors if you ever need serious, expert consultation.
Usability and readability is very straightforward. Wrap the upper arm with the large adult cuff (included), push ‘Start’ and view the results. It’s really that simple! And the large, 3 inch LCD display, with a low battery indicator located directly on the screen, makes data even easier to interpret.
This automatic blood pressure monitor includes:
- Large adult cuff
- Carrying bag
- User’s manual
- 4 AA batteries (recommended, not included)
As cliché as it sounds, don’t become a statistic if you can help it! A BP monitor only takes a minute of your time but can save years of your life.
