It has become popular nowadays to monitor blood pressure at home. There are many reasons your blood pressure may rise, so there are many reasons it's a good idea to monitor your blood pressure every day or a few times a week.
Reasons for at-home monitoring
According to the Mayo Clinic website, monitoring your blood pressure at home has a number of benefits. It can result in an earlier diagnosis of a health condition. Your high blood pressure may go "under the radar" if you are only getting it checked when you go to the doctor a few times a year.
Alternatively, you could get misdiagnosed as having high blood pressure if you only get it checked at the doctor's office. This is because of "white coat hypertension" where your blood pressure rises because of anxiety from visiting the doctor.
Furthermore, public blood pressure monitors, like the ones you see sometimes at pharmacies, are known for not being very accurate. However, over-the-counter blood pressure monitors, according to Consumer Reports, are actually very accurate and are a recommended product for people with high blood pressure or at risk for high blood pressure. It is also a good idea to keep tabs on your blood pressure if you are starting a new exercise regimen, for which you should always consult with your doctor.
What we offer
We have two different kinds of blood pressure monitors. One cuffs onto the wrist, and the other one goes on the upper arm. Unlike in the past, these monitors are automatic and do not require you to listen through a stethoscope. Just follow the instructions for cuffing and pushing the correct buttons. The cuff will automatically inflate and the machine will read your blood pressure. It can also read your blood pressure out loud in English or Spanish.
