What is the Suresign Blood Pressure Monitor
Suresign Blood Pressure Monitor is intended for the measurement of Systolic & Diastolic arterial blood pressure. The device measures the fluctuations in the pressure of the cuff produced by extension & contraction of the artery in the arm in response to each heartbeat. These are converted into millimetres of mercury (Hg) & are displayed as a digital value.
Suresign Blood Pressure Monitor automatic blood pressure monitor that is easy to use, gives an accurate reading , portable, making it easy to use when out and provides you with the convenience of testing at home.
Blood pressure is measured in millimetres of mercury (mmHg) and is given as 2 figures:
- systolic pressure – the pressure when your heart pushes blood out
- diastolic pressure – the pressure when your heart rests between beats
For example, if your blood pressure is “140 over 90” or 140/90mmHg, it means you have a systolic pressure of 140mmHg and a diastolic pressure of 90mmHg.
As a general guide:
- normal blood pressure is considered to be between 90/60mmHg and 120/80mmHg
- high blood pressure is considered to be 140/90mmHg or higher
- low blood pressure is considered to be 90/60mmHg or lower
A blood pressure reading between 120/80mmHg and 140/90mmHg could mean you’re at risk of developing high blood pressure if you don’t take steps to keep your blood pressure under control.
What a Blood Pressure Test is
A blood pressure test is a simple way of checking if your blood pressure is too high or too low.
Blood pressure is the term used to describe the strength with which your blood pushes on the sides of your arteries as it’s pumped around your body.
High blood pressure (hypertension) can put a strain on your arteries and organs, which can increase your risk of developing serious problems such as heart attacks and strokes.
Low blood pressure (hypotension) isn’t usually as serious, although it can cause dizziness and fainting in some people.
A blood pressure test is the only way to find out if your blood pressure is too high or too low, because most people won’t have any obvious symptoms. Having a test is easy and could save your life.
Benefits of using Suresign Blood Pressure Monitor at home
Blood pressure tests can also be carried out at home using your own Suresign
This can give a better reflection of your blood pressure, as being tested in somewhere like a GP surgery can make you feel anxious and can affect the result. It can also allow you to monitor your condition more easily in the long term.
How to use Suresign Blood Pressure Monitor
- Once you are in a comfortable position press START
- Once the cuﬀ has automatically inﬂated, the LCD screen will display a ﬂashing heart whilst the pressure is gradually reduced and the monitor takes an automatic measurement
- The monitor will faintly beep when the automatic measurement has ﬁnished. It is advised to use the monitor in a quiet room in order to hear the beep. The reading will be displayed on the screen along with the pulse rate.
To get an accurate value:
- Measure at least one hour after eating and avoid measuring immediately after bathing
- Measure one hour after smoking or drinking alcohol/coffee
- Relax for 5 minutes before taking a measurement and remain relaxed whilst measuring
- Do not move or talk during measurement, as this will affect the accuracy
- If you suffer from atrial or ventricular premature beats or atrial fibrillation you may get an inaccurate reading.
