Blood Pressure Monitors

Most people have had their blood pressure taken at some time.

Its a simple and painless procedure that gives a lot of useful information about the heart and the condition of the blood vessels.

The doctor measures the maximum pressure (systolic) and the lowest pressure (diastolic) made by the beating of the heart.

The systolic pressure is the maximum pressure in an artery at the moment when the heart is beating and pumping blood through the body.

The diastolic pressure is the lowest pressure in an artery in the moments between beats when the heart is resting.

Both the systolic and diastolic pressure measurements are important – if either one is raised, it means you have high blood pressure hypertension.

Blood Pressure Monitors are used both in the home and by professionals, they can be very useful in providing doctors with BP measurement throught the coarse of a day as a doctor can not be there to measure your blood pressure all the time. With built in memory your readings can easily be stored for future reference by a professional.
