Why Do You Need a Blood Pressure Monitor?
#1 Early Diagnosis of Hypertension
One out of three adults is estimated to have hypertension, but more than 50% are not aware of their condition. Monitoring your blood pressure regularly is a very effective way to diagnose hypertension earlier.
#2 Identifying “White Coat Hypertension”
There are individuals whose blood pressure measurements are beyond normal in medical facilities because they experience stress when they go to the hospital or to a doctor’s office. Buying a home blood pressure kit of your own helps in ruling out this situational rise in your blood pressure called “white coat hypertension.”
#3 Identifying Masked Hypertension
Masked hypertension is a type of hypertension where an individual will have a normal BP measurement using a hospital blood pressure machine in a doctor’s outpatient office. However, the value will be higher when the individual is at home. A personal BP monitor helps your doctor in diagnosing masked hypertension by comparing your own measurements with his/hers.
Why Choose Raycome for BP Apparatus
Blood Pressure Apparatus Buying Guide
Automatic or Manual
An automatic blood pressure machine comprises a wrist or an upper arm cuff and a digital display. During readings, the cuff is automatically inflated by the machine and the BP reading is displayed on the digital display. This mechanism makes it easy for anyone to take readings on their own without any special skills. Automatic home BP machines are also compact and portable.
In contrast, a manual blood pressure machine has an upper arm cuff, an aneroid gauge, a pumping bulb, and a stethoscope. To take a reading, a patient would have to manually inflate the cuff, listen to the heart rate on the stethoscope, and watch the gauge for the BP readings. As such, a manual BP monitor would be unsuitable for a blind or a deaf patient. Further, the complexity of the reading process leaves room for error and can be difficult for one person to handle without assistance.
Upper Arm Cuff or Wrist Cuff
It is recommended that a blood pressure machine cuff is placed at the same level as the heart during readings. An upper arm cuff makes it easy to implement this as it is placed right above the elbow. It is, however, important that the cuff fits comfortably around the upper arm; a loose or overly tight fit would give inaccurate readings. Some patients may also have a hard time maneuvering the cuff to their upper arm.
A wrist blood pressure cuff is worn around the same position where you would wear a wristwatch. According to medical research, readings taken from the wrist can have inaccuracies as it is harder to maintain the wrist at heart height. Nevertheless, a BP machine with a wrist cuff may be a good alternative for anyone that is not able to wear an upper arm cuff due to size or other challenges.
Data Cloud Storage
A blood pressure monitoring machine can have an internal memory but that would only be able to store limited data sets. In a home BP monitor, this would limit the device to one user or two users that can only store short-term data. Whereas in a BP monitor for hospital use, insufficient storage would make record-keeping difficult. Data cloud storage solves this problem by providing sufficient space to store larger amounts of blood pressure readings of multiple users.
Blood pressure monitors with data cloud storage enable patients to transfer their BP readings data to the cloud via wifi. Such monitors would be ideal if you would like to share your BP machine with other members of your household or share BP data with your doctor via a BP app. They would also be suitable for hospitals looking to ease their patient data management.
Blood pressure monitor manufacturers design their BP monitors with unique operating mechanisms. One of the most common ones is the single balloon system. It is effective but only takes readings from one or two pulse points which may not show the true state of a patient’s blood pressure. Such inaccuracies may seem negligible but they greatly influence important patient care issues like medicine prescriptions.
On the other hand, Raycome blood pressure machines operate using patented Pulsewave technology with dual balloons. During readings, one balloon inflates the cuff while the other measures pressure pulses. Unlike single balloon BP monitors, Pulsewave technology takes readings at different pressure points between pulses and gives their average as the final reading. This is a more accurate figure that gives truer reading than a single-point measurement.
Who Needs a Blood Pressure Machine
Blood pressure conditions are chronic and require long-term monitoring. Therefore, a home blood pressure machine is essential for anyone that has been diagnosed with hypertension or hypotension. More so because the symptoms of a hypo or hypertensive crisis can easily be mistaken for malaise yet such episodes are life-threatening. Getting an accurate daily reading could help you monitor your progress and know when to seek help.
Patients that suffer from emotional anxiety or white coat syndrome would also get better readings at home when they are calmer than at the hospital. Additionally, persons with disabilities may have an easier time monitoring their blood pressure from home as hospital visits can be overly exerting. They can equally share their readings with their doctors and benefit from remote care. Where price is a constraint, consider buying from a wholesale blood pressure monitors supplier as they may offer pocket-friendly rates.
How to Read Blood Pressure on a Blood Pressure Machine
The heart pumps oxygenated blood to the rest of the body through arteries. Blood pressure is, therefore, the amount of pressure at which blood pushes through the arteries as the heart pumps. When the pressure force is too high the patient is said to be hypertensive and when it is too low, they are hypotensive.
Normal blood pressure is a state where blood flows through the arterial system in a force that is neither too high nor too low. It is also the baseline against which all BP readings are compared.
Interpreting Blood Pressure Readings
The display screen on a digital blood pressure machine displays 3 main sets of numbers during readings. They represent systolic pressure, diastolic pressure, and heart rate from top to bottom, in that order.
- Systolic pressure- this is the pressure that blood exerts on your arteries when it pumps.
- Diastolic pressure- this is the pressure that blood exerts on your arteries between heart pumps/beats.
- Heart rate- the number of times your heart beats in a minute.
Systolic and diastolic blood pressure are interpreted in relation to each other as summarized below.
Note: if your readings meet the criteria of a hypertensive crisis, seek emergency medical care; it is a life-threatening condition.
