Google, YouTube, iPhones, Affordable Care Act featured in new research for role in hypertension
Date:5/16/2014

lood pressure devices often produce errors that are more than 5 mmHg too high or low for about half of the individuals that use them. And, some home monitoring devices may provide a measurement error of as large as 40/20 mmHg. Grim tested the validity of reading from the iHealth Blood Pressure Dock and the Withings Home BP device, both for use on the iPhone. At each sitting, five readings were taken with each device, with 30 seconds rest between each reading. The same person used both devices for more than three months.

Of the 112 readings tested, the iHealth read the systolic an average of 5.3 mmHg and the diastolic 3.3 mmHg higher than the standard auscultatory method. The Withings monitor read the diastolic pressure lower than the standard auscultatory method by 5.3 mmHg. A 5 mmHg difference may seem insignificant, but this error at the 90-95 mmHg range would miss 21 million cases of hypertension in the U.S. alone. Dr. Grim and other leading researchers are advocating for stricter standards for manual, electronic or automated blood pressure manometers.

Health Insurance Makes A Difference in Controlling High Blood Pressure

Currently, nearly half of people with hypertension do not have their blood pressure controlled. New research shows that the Affordable Care Act may play a role in reaching the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Healthy People 2020 goal of achieving blood pressure control in more than 61% of people with diagnosed hypertension.

Research presented by researchers at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine - Greenville found a dramatic increase in the number of 18-64 year-olds with diagnosed hypertension who are uninsured, as well as a growing gap between the insured versus uninsured Americans as it relates to controlling hypertension. Using data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey from 1988-2010, the researchers reported a 15.6 million increase in the number of
