Fast Facts about Hypertension:
High blood pressure affects about 76 million Americans. Of those, 78% know they have it, but only 45% of them have it under control. Treating high blood pressure can reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, heart failure, kidney damage, and death. Self-measurement of blood pressure usually requires a person to keep written records of their readings, which lends itself to human error.
In addition, studies indicate that 25% of people who have high blood pressure in a physical exam are actually experiencing short-term hypertension because they’re in the doctor’s office (“white coat hypertension”).
Blood Pressure Monitor
Monitoring blood pressure at home using the Carematix Wellness System is SIMPLE for patients
The CWS can help maximize the effectiveness of medication. If patients’ drug dosages are correlated to their blood pressure measurements frequently, their hypertension can be controlled more tightly and their clinical goals met more quickly. The Carematix system also helps identify patients who don’t really have high blood pressure, preventing unnecessary, costly prescriptions. Also, for someone with diabetes, measuring blood pressure can reveal circulatory problems.
