Blood Pressure Diary and Blood Pressure Pass (free download) for tracking your measurements
What is blood pressure and what do the readings mean?
Blood pressure is a measure of the force of blood flowing against the walls of the arteries.
The blood pressure readings have two numbers (e. g. 118/78 mmHg, which is Systolic/Diastolic or SYS/DIA). The highest pressure in the cycle is called the Systolic Blood Pressure. The lowest is the Diastolic Blood Pressure. Both are necessary to enable healthcare professional to evaluate the status of your blood pressure.
Ideally, we should all have a blood pressure below 120 over 80 (120/80). At this level, we have a much lower risk of heart disease or stroke.
Tracking your measurements using Blood Pressure Diary and Pass (free download)
A single measurement does not provide an accurate indication of your true blood pressure. Please use this Blood Pressure Diary* or Blood Pressure Pass* to keep records of several readings over a certain period of time.
Health data in one place: 'OMRON connect' app
Some blood pressure monitors can transfer your readings to your smartphone (known as ‘connected’). With the ‘OMRON connect’ app, you can track your progress, share the results with your doctor, and get a deeper understanding of your health over time. These connected devices are recommended for those who need to monitor their blood pressure closely and track it over time such as diabetic patients and pregnant women, as well as people who are starting a new treatment, and people whose readings often vary at the doctor’s office and at home (‘White Coat Hypertension’ and ‘Masked Hypertension’).
