Prescription for Success: Recommended Blood Pressure Monitors Fill Gap for Health Care Professionals
Oct 14, 2018MISSISSAUGA, Ontario: For the health care providers who care for the 15 million Canadians living with or at risk of hypertension, Auto Control Medical is proud to announce that WatchBP by Microlife professional blood pressure monitors are now recommended by Hypertension Canada.
These are the only clinical-grade office blood pressure monitors currently confirmed by Hypertension Canada to meet the latest standards for accuracy in blood pressure measurement.
In addition to clinically-validated accuracy, the WatchBP monitors save valuable in-clinic time by automating multiple measurements and averaging the results meeting the related recommendation in the Hypertension Canada Guidelines for the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of hypertension.
Accurate blood pressure measurement is essential for diagnosis in the physician's office and for monitoring in both the office and the patient's home, says Angelique Berg, chief executive officer of Hypertension Canada. Accuracy is key to help the physician and patient determine the most appropriate treatment and gauge how that treatment is working, to prevent the chronic and deadly diseases to which hypertension can lead.
First developed in 2001 and updated during Hypertension Awareness Month 2018, Hypertension Canada's new list of recommended blood pressure measurement devices was the first of its kind in North America to confirm that the listed devices meet the latest international standards for accuracy in blood pressure measurement.
Auto Control Medical also offers its LifeSource brand home blood pressure monitors (also recommended by Hypertension Canada), making it easy for the public and clinicians to identify high quality, accurate monitors.
We are proud to offer recommended professional product lines - like the WatchBP monitors -, which represent our long history of providing hypertension-related products to the Canadian market, said Jessica Nash, Managing Director of Auto Control Medical. This deep knowledge of the marketplace has allowed us to successfully partner with Hypertension Canada in their work to raise awareness around improved health management for all Canadians. (PRN)
