Blood Pressure Monitors are a Vital Tool for Those Suffering from Hypertension or Hypotension

If you are a frequent sufferer of hypertension (high blood pressure) or hypotension (low blood pressure) then you might want to consider investing in one of NRS Healthcares handy and reliable blood pressure monitors if you haven’t already got your hands on one of these potentially life saving devices.

Blood Pressure Monitors Allow you to make Informed Decisions

High blood pressure presents the most serious risks and accounts for between 20 and 25 percent of all deaths worldwide and can be a result of stress, obesity, a bad diet or an underlying medical condition. Uncontrolled high blood pressure is very harmful and can damage the walls of your arteries as well as speed up hardening of the arteries and enlargement of the heart eventually leading to heart failure. In addition, artery hardening and damage can lead to aneurysms, sight loss, strokes, and reduction of blood supply to the brain, heart disease and heart attacks.

On the other hand, if you suffer from low blood pressure this could be due to blood loss, dehydration, inflammation of internal organs, weakened heart muscles, medication, pregnancy and a number of underlying health conditions. Like high blood pressure, low blood pressure can also carry risks for the sufferer. If you suffer from low pressure this could result in your internal organs not receiving ample blood supply and in turn can suffer permanent damage. Blood carries oxygen around your body, without enough oxygen you could suffer blackouts as a result of low blood pressure. This is especially a risk when standing or sitting up too quickly.

Blood pressure monitors allow you to accurately monitor a persons or your own bloody pressure allowing you to make informed decisions on how to remedy this and take steps to either lower or increase your blood pressure. This can be achieved by lifestyle changes or seeing a specialist who may prescribe medication.
