Blood Pressure Monitors

Your heart is the engine that powers your circulatory system. It works ceaselessly on your behalf to move your blood to your muscles, organs and all the other parts of your body that require constant energy and oxygen. The force created by the movement of blood throughout your body is known as blood pressure. The moment after your heart beats, your blood pressure goes up. When your heart is relaxed, your blood pressure falls. That’s why you get two different numbers each time you take a blood pressure measurement.

Most people that monitor their blood pressure at home are concerned about hypertension, or high blood pressure. Hypertension doesn’t have any serious immediate effects, but it can definitely damage you over a long period of time. According to the Mayo Clinic, half of people that do nothing about their high blood pressure die of ischemic heart disease and another third end up dying from strokes. There are many different causes of high blood pressure, ranging from obesity to family history. Fortunately, there are also many ways to control high blood pressure once you’ve identified the problem.
