Why you need to know your blood pressure
So many people are unaware of what their blood pressure is – and that means that so many of us are completely oblivious to living with high blood pressure, in fact 30% of the UK suffer with high blood pressure and are completely unaware of it. If you suffer with headaches, nosebleeds, and dizziness or have a constant ringing in your ears; these are all signs of high blood pressure. The Beurer BM49 will quickly and accurately read your blood pressure according to the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) guidelines and classifications.
When the voice function is active; the voice will talk you through your monitoring. The voice will notify you when your device is ready for use, your blood pressure measurement in both systole and diastole, your heart rate (BPM) and the classification according to WHO that your blood pressure fits into.
Here are the classifications and what the voice output will say to notify you:
The talking blood pressure monitor will also notify you of any potential disruptions of the heart rhythm when you are measuring; when the monitor is in voice function the device will announce “A possible cardiac arrhythmia was found” or the monitor will display the arrhythmia detection symbol.
Monitoring your blood pressure shouldn’t be a stressful experience; the upper arm blood pressure monitor does it all for you! The Beurer BM49 is designed specifically for home use and you don’t even have to worry about setting the pressure either, the blood pressure monitor automatically pre-selects the pressure and deflates – like a walk in the park!
What should you do to prevent high blood pressure?
If you have decided to monitor your blood pressure with the Beurer BM49, you need to make a few changes to your lifestyle so you can have optimum blood pressure and keep the worries and symptoms of hypertension at bay. More often than not, those who suffer with hypertension believe that they cannot enjoy themselves – you can enjoy life to the fullest, here are a few alterations you should make for better health:
- Cut down on salt and fat – not just the salt you put over your food, it also applies for the salt and the fat that is already added into your food.
- Eat more fruit and veg – especially the ones that are vibrant in red colours such as apples, strawberries and tomatoes
- Move more – doing 150 minutes of exercise a week will really benefit your health – that’s only two and a half hours!
- Reduce your alcohol intake – just like your GDA on foods; you should stick to your alcohol units.
- Stub it out – no good comes from cigarettes, throw them away immediately!
- Limit your caffeine intake – drinking more than 4 cups of coffee a day can increase your blood pressure; you can find caffeine in fizzy drinks and tea too.
- Relax – it’s essential and can be really effective in lowering your blood pressure if you follow the other recommendations too, after all, relaxing isn’t difficult!
