New Blood Pressure Monitor

“The beauty of all of this is that it is difficult to argue against the proposition that the pressure near to your heart and brain is likely to be more relevant to your risk of stroke and heart disease than the pressure in your arm,” he said.
This newly developed blood pressure monitor can gather the information from close to the heart in the aorta and send that information to a computer. The theory is your arm really isn’t the place to monitor blood pressure, especially if you are at risk. It will make it easier for blood pressure readings and make the whole approach simpler and hopefully far more accurate.  General monitoring is one thing and can be helpful but for some people the accuracy will make all the difference in terms of providing good medical care and treatment. I hope we see them on the market soon!
