For people with hypertension, it is necessary to monitor their blood pressure frequently to pay attention to their physical condition. However, going to the hospital all the time can be very inconvenient, so many people equip themselves with a blood pressure monitor at home. Many elderly people think that electronic blood pressure monitors are not accurate and not as good as mercury sphygmomanometers. In fact, this view is wrong. Currently, electronic blood pressure monitors are relatively accurate, and mercury sphygmomanometers are quite dangerous for home use because they contain mercury.

Measuring blood pressure is a simple technique, but if the measurement method is incorrect, it will affect the blood pressure measurement value and cannot truly reflect the patient's own blood pressure. Many patients with hypertension and heart disease have purchased blood pressure monitors for home monitoring, which is undoubtedly a good thing.

However, often the self-measured blood pressure values of patients are inconsistent with those measured by medical staff, and sometimes they are far apart. Why is this? It is often because patients ignore some correct methods of measuring blood pressure. Blood pressure measurement results are related to factors such as gender, age, posture, exercise, mental state, and measurement methods. The accuracy of blood pressure measurement results will directly affect the diagnosis, treatment, and judgment of the therapeutic effect by medical staff.

Blood Pressure Monitor Calibration

All electronic devices have the risk of device stability, so regular maintenance, testing, and calibration are required to ensure the accuracy of the measured blood pressure values and to guide clinical medication. It is recommended to calibrate the blood pressure monitor at least every 6 months.

Should you choose an arm-type or wrist-type electronic blood pressure monitor?

When choosing a blood pressure monitor, consider the user's situation. For the general population, either an arm-type or a wrist electronic blood pressure monitor can be used.

For middle-aged and elderly people with high blood viscosity, poor microcirculation, or conditions such as diabetes, hyperlipidemia, and hypertension, it is recommended to use an arm-type blood pressure monitor. Compared to wrist-type monitors, the measurement values of arm-type monitors are more accurate.

Do you need a blood pressure monitor with memory function?

The memory function of a blood pressure monitor refers to saving the blood pressure records (such as high and low blood pressure, pulse rate, etc.) of the tested person in the machine. This allows long-term users to have a clear understanding of their blood pressure values over time, which is a useful function. However, these types of electronic blood pressure monitors are expensive and depend on personal economic conditions.

TeleRPM BPM Gen 1 is a specifically designed FDA approved blood pressure monitor to serve patients who need Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM). It's cleared by FDA as a Class II Medical Device.
