Smart blood pressure monitors

High blood pressure – hypertension – increases the risk of a heart attack. One in three adults is affected but as there are no obvious symptoms, a third of these can be unaware of a problem. Those over 40 should have their blood pressure checked by a doctor every five years.

While self-checking is not a substitute for seeing a doctor, being able to regularly measure and most importantly track blood pressure over time is of great help in understanding how dietary, fitness and other changes effect your blood pressure.

There are many easy to use digital devices on the market. The American and British Hypertension Societies recommend using an upper-arm monitor as these are more accurate than wrist monitors.
