Do You Have One Of These in Your Home? You Should!

You may not realize this, but 67 million American adults (31%) have high blood pressure—that's 1 in every 3 American adults. Anyone, including children, can develop high blood pressure. It greatly increases the risk for heart disease and stroke, the first and third leading causes of death in the United States. Those are some scary statistics.

But monitoring for high blood pressure is fairly easy and something all families should do, and not just at doctor office visits. Keeping track of yours at home is easy and inexpensive. Plus it could forewarn you about possible health issues. The sooner you catch a problem, the sooner you can fix or control it.

Health Gurus has a very simple to use Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor that would be a great addition to any home first aid kit.

Here's some info from the company:
1) Large, easy-to-read, backlit display
2) Simple single button operation
3) Accurate, FDA registered device
4) Two user support
5) Handy storage case
6) One-size-fits-all upper arm cuff
7) 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. 2 Year Warranty.
8) Fast, friendly, and helpful service from our local, US office via email or phone.
9) Systolic / Diastolic and heart rate readings. Pulse sensor. Hypertension indicator bar. Irregular heartbeat sensor. Auto Off. Large, Backlit LCD (2.75"). Large display digits (0.375"). Includes monitor, upper arm cuff, storage case, 4 AAA batteries.

Here's my friend Lisa showing another friend how easy it is to put the cuff on.

We found the monitor really easy to use. The instructions that come with it are easy to understand and the monitor itself it quick simple to operate. It records up to 120 readings, which can give you a clear picture of how you are doing and where there may be a problem or not. I really like how it records for two people as well. Both my husband and I can keep track of our readings.

My friend Sharon testing her blood pressure.

The display on the monitor is very well lit and easy to read. Some monitors I have seen have small display images and I love having one that is large enough to see well. Along the left side is a color graph to show you when your pressure is in the right range or not. That's a nice quick indicator just in case you don't remember what is considered high and what is not. 

It also has a great handy dandy case to store it in so you always know where it is. The organizer in me loves that!

You may think this is strange, but I really believe a blood pressure monitor would make a great gift for someone you love. It shows how you want to help look out for them!
