Advice from the BP Measurement Experts
As patients, we expect our healthcare providers to consistently deliver accurate results that inform us on our health conditions. Yet, we often fail to hold ourselves to that same expected level of accuracy and control while we are caring for our own minds and bodies outside of a clinic.
Why then should accurate and controlled blood pressure monitoring be a priority?
Simply put, Hypertension remains the leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide and significantly impacts the risk of all major cardiovascular events, including strokes, sudden cardiac death, coronary heart disease, and heart failure. Numerically, Hypertension is responsible for 13% of all deaths, globally, and 75% of the world’s hypertension population are at increased risk heart disease.
As a gravely significant condition that is frequently expressed asymptomatically, major health-focused organizations around the world are advocating for accurate and proactive blood pressure monitoring habits, and are sharing effective methods for controlling hypertension. SunTech is constantly striving to aid in this movement by providing quality and effective technology and information to help individuals manage their blood pressure.
Remember, it is never too late to start building healthy habits… so roll your sleeves up, accurately know your numbers, and work hard to control your condition so that you can live a happier, healthier, and longer life.
