Hypertension is a common chronic disease. If you have been diagnosed with hypertension or have risk factors such as age, gender, family history, chronic kidney disease, poor diet, excessive alcohol consumption or pregnancy, you should probably take blood pressure monitoring regularly. By monitoring blood pressure regularly at home, you will be aware of your blood pressure status and have a clear picture of the next step, whether to maintain the current situation, take medication or turn to doctor's help immediately if things are out of control.
Accuracy of blood pressure measurement machine is important no matter in clinical practice or daily home measurement. International hypertension societies including AHA (American Heart Association) recommend taking multiple readings  on the same day and average the measurement value, because blood pressure fluctuates during the day. Switch the button on the right side of TelePRM BPM Gen 2, then it will perform three consecutive measurements automatically, which can minimize occasional deviation.

If you have a TeleRPM BPM Gen 2 blood pressure monitor, you can share the readings with your healthcare provider. It is cellular-enabled, and data can be transmitted seamlessly. Your doctor or other healthcare provider will then be able to help you make a diagnosis and consider an appropriate treatment if necessary.
