Hypertension: What is Blood Pressure?
- The heart is a very powerful pump that beats steadily
- The pressure created by the heart to pump the blood through the blood
vessels is called blood pressure
- When the heart muscle contracts the blood surges through the arteries,
this is when the systolic (upper) blood pressure value occurs
The diastolic (lower) value is the resting pressure before the heart
contracts again. Ideally your blood pressure should be below 140/85 mmHg.
There are approximately 16 million people in the UK with high blood
pressure, however nearly two thirds are not aware of the fact, which is
understandable when there are no symptoms. However, if left, high blood
pressure can lead to strokes and heart problems.
Every OMRON blood pressure monitor is tested for accuracy against
the clinical guidelines for measuring blood pressure that are specified by
the European Society of Hypertension. A clinically validated monitor means
that it has undergone tests conducted by independent doctors according to
a predetermined protocol, which includes ensuring the accuracy of the
measurements (algorithm) of the blood pressure monitors.
OMRON Intellisense is an advanced technology for blood pressure
measurement. An Intellisense monitor inflates the cuff to the ideal level
for each use, meaning that each reading has a personalised inflation level
that is right for the user.
