Omron Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor

About one in three American adults has high blood pressure. About 69 percent of people 65 or older have high blood pressure. High blood pressure increases the risk of heart attack, stroke, and premature death. Routinely measuring with a home testing device can help keep your blood pressure under control.

Some people have high blood pressure caused by an underlying condition such as kidney, adrenal gland, or thyroid problems. High blood pressure can be caused by certain medications such as cold remedies, decongestants, and pain relievers and by illegal drugs, such as cocaine and amphetamines. It can also result from alcohol abuse. But for most adults there is no identifiable cause of high blood pressure.

Optimal blood pressure is 120 over 80. These numbers represent the pressure when your hearts contracts (systolic), over the pressure when your heart rests between beats (diastolic) in mmHg (millimeters of mercury). Before you test your blood pressure:

Go to the bathroom first.
Don't exercise, consume coffee, or smoke within an hour of measuring your blood pressure.
Sit quietly with good posture and your legs uncrossed for at least 5 minutes before measuring your blood pressure.

Don't expect any two blood pressure readings to be exactly the same. Your blood pressure varies from morning to evening, ususally highe rin the morning, and it varies contiuously throughout the day depending upon your physical activity and your mood. To track your blood pressure over time measure at the same time each day and record yuor reading in a diary.

There are dozens of high blood pressure medications, each with its pros and cons. Your doctor may prescribe one or more of these medications based on the specifics of your condition and on how high your blood pressure is. Some people may be able to keep their blood pressure under control with basic lifestyle changes. For more information Click here
