What is a blood pressure monitor?
It is the heart's job to allow our body to function properly and to keep it alive by bringing oxygen-rich blood to the different parts of the body. The heart pumps blood through the body, with blood pressure being a measure of how hard the heart is working.
A blood pressure monitor is a device that measures the pressure with which the blood is pumped through the blood vessels. The pressure ensures that the blood is pumped through the body and that muscles and organs receive sufficient oxygen. You can measure blood pressure yourself by quickly and easily buying a blood pressure meter.
How to use a blood pressure monitor?
Will you be buying a blood pressure monitor to measure your blood pressure at home? Then it is useful to know how it works. A good blood pressure monitor consists of a measuring device and an inflatable band. This band is placed at the height of the heart on the upper arm. The band is filled with air until it cuts off the blood supply. Then the air slowly leaves the band and the blood starts to flow again. The moment the blood starts to flow again, it causes a vibration. This vibration is used by the measuring device to calculate the overpressure. When the tyre deflates and the blood starts to flow normally again, the vibration stops. At that moment the negative pressure is recorded. Several things are very important when measuring, so read the instructions carefully before taking your blood pressure.
What is low blood pressure?
People with low blood pressure have, on average, a systolic blood pressure of less than 90 and a diastolic blood pressure of less than 60. A drop in blood pressure, especially in people over 65, can sometimes be an indication of an underlying medical condition. Without an adequate blood supply, dizziness, lightheadedness or fainting may occur. People who are otherwise healthy and have no symptoms of low blood pressure should not be concerned.
What is normal blood pressure?
Normal blood pressure - neither too low nor too high - is considered the optimal condition. To be considered normal, the values should be between 90 and 120 systolic and between 60 and 80 diastolic.
To maintain good blood pressure, a healthy weight, sufficient exercise and avoidance of stimulants are important. Be alert if there is a hereditary predisposition to having high blood pressure. In that case, keep measuring your blood pressure over time.
What is hypertension?
To be classified as having hypertension, you must have measured an elevated systolic blood pressure between 120 and 129 and a low diastolic blood pressure of less than 80 using a good blood pressure monitor. If you have elevated blood pressure, it is the first indication that you may later develop high blood pressure. Hypertension can be controlled without the use of medication. This can be done by adding more exercise to your routine and by eating a balanced diet.
How does a blood pressure monitor work?
When measured with a good blood pressure monitor, it is divided into two parts: the systolic and the diastolic pressure. When blood is actively pushed from the heart into the arteries, the systolic pressure measures the force with which the blood hits the walls of the blood vessels. The highest figure in your blood pressure measurement is the systolic pressure, which can be called 'active'.
The diastolic pressure is measured from the lowest number on your blood pressure measurement. The pressure in your blood vessels when your heart is resting between beats is called the 'resting' pressure.
How can I keep my blood pressure at a healthy level?
High blood pressure is caused by a variety of lifestyle variables and you can reduce the risk by making a few simple lifestyle changes. Firstly, regular exercise is important, and it is recommended that you take 30 minutes every day to stay in shape.
Reducing salt intake can also help with a healthier lifestyle. Nicotine, alcohol and caffeine are also stimulants that immediately increase blood pressure and heart rate. Abstaining from or reducing these substances has been shown to lower blood pressure.
What is a reliable blood pressure monitor?
Do you want to buy a reliable blood pressure monitor? There are two different types of meters on the market; the wrist blood pressure meter and the upper arm blood pressure meter. The Heart Foundation recommends the latter because a wrist blood pressure monitor is more sensitive to errors. If you are going to buy one, bear this in mind.
Buying a Microlife Blood Pressure Monitor
If you want to buy an automatic blood pressure monitor that is easy to use, we have even more options. Like the fully automatic blood pressure monitor from Romed. Maybe a little less known than the Microlife meter but a good alternative for a competitive price.
