High blood pressure and associated complications are preventable and treatable
Blood pressure measurement on the upper arm
Many people feel very well for a long time despite the high blood pressure and have no complaints. Others, however, complain of headaches, dizziness, shortness of breath and tiredness. The headaches usually appear in the morning and disappear again after an hour or two. However, these symptoms can also have other causes - regular blood pressure checks help to clarify the symptoms. High blood pressure often occurs with other cardiovascular risk factors such as diabetes, obesity and hyperlipidemia
However, high blood pressure can only be successfully treated in cooperation between doctor and patient. The treatment is tailored to the individual patient.
Wellion WAVE Professional blood pressure monitor
The Wellion WAVE blood pressure monitors are particularly convenient to measure. The illuminated display with the particularly large numbers is easy to read. The upper arm cuff is always ready to hand and at the same time neatly stowed away in the rear compartment.
With the coloured marking on the side edge, your blood pressure measurement result is not only displayed in numbers, but also classified in a range of the WHO blood pressure classification. If your result is in the normal range, the marker is in the green area. A too high blood pressure is always marked in the red area, and a normal-high value in the yellow area. A practical visual indicator for better assessment of the results.
Tips for monitoring blood pressure
Relax and try to remain still for 5 to 10 minutes before taking a measurement.
Sit down on a chair with backrest.
When taking control measurements, always measure on the arm with the higher blood pressure - usually the left arm (near the heart). Position your arm so that the cuff is at the same height as your heart.
Stand on the floor with both feet.
Stay calm during the measurement - talking, laughing or coughing can falsify the results.
After heavy physical exertion, sports, eating, smoking, alcohol consumption and bathing, wait at least 30 minutes before measuring your blood pressure, as these activities can affect your blood pressure.
Do not worry about an unusual result from a single measurement. Several measurements recorded over a long period of time will give you a better overview of your blood pressure.
The Wellion WAVE blood pressure monitors use the oscillometric method to determine blood pressure.
