This month has been Blood Pressure Awareness month so I teamed up with Kinetik Wellbeing to monitor my blood pressure.
Why is it important to check your blood pressure?
Knowing your blood pressure and checking changes over time will let you take early action and seek medical support before any problem arises! It is now also said that MILLENNIALS are the most ‘At Risk’ of developing High Blood Pressure due to certain lifestyle choices.
Kinetik work in association with St John Ambulance, they sent me my own Advanced Blood Pressure Monitor so I could measure my blood pressure at home. I found it very comfortable to use and it is so straight forward anyone would be able to work it! You simply unpack, setup and connect the cuff to the Blood Pressure Monitor, Place the cuff on your upper arm, level with your heart and sit upright in a relaxed position, Press Start and the monitor will take your measurement, easy.
If you are new to taking your blood pressure then the hardest part, which I found, was knowing what ratings were normal or irregular. This is all explained in the instructions guide and it is reassuring to now have the device so I can check on this regularly.
They key features of this monitor include:
• Irregular heartbeat detection
• 3 user memory – Family Mode – 60 memories each
• Averages readings – as per BHS Guidelines
• Quick to use – one button operation
• Universal comfort cuff – measures on inflation
Even if you dont know anyone who has had problems with their blood pressure and think, what is the point in this? I could just go to the doctors if theres any problems… Why wait? It is getting harder and harder to see your GP and why wait until a problem is there when you could detect it straight away with this simple device!
The Advanced Blood Pressure Monitor X2 Comfort’s results have scientific value. This device is compliant with European medical device regulations and is a Class IIa Medical Device. So rest assured you’re buying a quality product!
