Combination of Home Blood Pressure Monitoring & Doctor Visits Keeps the Numbers You Need to Know in Check
Date:1/18/2011

BANNOCKBURN, Ill., Jan. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- A recent research review has concluded that home blood pressure monitors can help people keep their blood pressure in check and possibly cut down on medication – as long as patients and their doctors put those home readings to good use(1). For years, Omron Healthcare, Inc. has reminded Americans how important home blood pressure monitoring is when it comes to reducing their risk of a heart attack or stroke, and truly wants people to take the news to heart in 2011.

"Studies have proven that monitoring blood pressure not only in the doctor's office, but also at home, is vital to reducing the risk of stroke, heart attack, heart failure or kidney failure," said Ranndy Kellogg, Omron Healthcare vice president of marketing and product development. "With February being American Heart Month, it's the perfect time to keep your heart health top-of-mind and take a step in monitoring your own health with a home blood pressure monitor."

In fact, the American Heart Association (AHA) recommends people with high blood pressure should purchase an accurate monitor and take regular readings at home(2).  With a home monitor, blood pressure readings are made easier and can be used in tandem with those from the doctor's office.  In short, a combination of proper readings at home and in the doctor's office can successfully manage high blood pressure.

Blood Pressure Doesn't Affect Me, Right?It is estimated that heart disease costs around $300 billion in the United States when you factor in medicines, surgeries, health care services and loss in productivity(3). Once more, high blood pressure affects nearly one in three adults in the U.S., or more than 73 million people(4). The AHA has dedicated the entire month of February to shedding light on heart health in an effort to draw more attention to the many ways Americans can take preventative measures to protect their hearts.
