Date:10/4/2010

BANNOCKBURN, Ill., Oct. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Omron Healthcare, Inc. the number one brand recommended by doctors in the home blood pressure category, is simplifying home blood pressure monitoring for consumers with the launch of its new product line.

Our new features ensure they are getting an accurate reading every time they use an Omron product."

Monitoring blood pressure at home is one of the most important things people can do to reduce their risk of a heart attack or stroke.  More than 50 percent of people with high blood pressure who monitor at home show an improvement in medication compliance and are quicker to take action(3).  With that in mind, it's critical to use a home
