A person suffering from hypertension should always have a special monitor on hand, as regular blood pressure measurement will help prevent the occurrence of a hypertensive crisis. The user can measure the pressure at any time if he feels unwell, and then take the necessary measures to lower the blood pressure if it rises. In this case, you do not need to wait for undesirable consequences and then call an ambulance. It is better to prevent both the consequences and feeling unwell.
Hypertension is the third leading cause of death worldwide. And the number of deaths associated with hypertension is expected to skyrocket in the coming decades. High blood pressure puts additional stress on the cardiovascular system, which in turn causes the heart chamber to expand and damage the blood vessels that supply the heart.
When planning to buy an automatic or semi-automatic tonometer, you should understand that the price of modern multifunctional models will be higher.
Automatic and semi-automatic blood pressure monitors have several clear advantages over mechanical counterparts, especially when it comes to Antrolife:
- depending on the type, pressure can be measured on the forearm and wrist;
- there is an opportunity to save the results;
- there is a precise instruction for use, allowing you to get reliable results.
In semi-automatic tonometers, the same measurement algorithms are used as in automatic devices, only in the latter the air is forced by the compressor. Semi-automatic electronic devices do not eliminate the need for self-pumping of air into the cuff, which can lead to an overestimation of the indicator by 10-15 mm Hg. Semi-automatic devices can be recommended to a greater extent for people with low pressure and for those who can independently properly pump air using a pear. Due to its low price, the semi-automatic blood pressure monitor can also be a good addition to a car first aid kit.
However, for home use is most suitable the Antrolife AES-UB21.
Take care of yourself and your health.
