Why do parents always have inaccurate blood pressure measurement? Here is the reason!

 Blood pressure management is a healthy habit that everyone in today's society needs to master, especially for middle-aged and elderly people, blood pressure can often directly show the health of a middle-aged and elderly people such as blood and heart. The dizziness, headache, weakness, and listlessness that we often encounter in daily life are probably related to abnormal blood pressure.

Why do parents always get inaccurate blood pressure?  Here is the reason!

The incidence of hypertension in China is very high, and it is also the most common cardiovascular disease and major public health problem worldwide. According to the results of the survey on the nutritional and health status of Chinese residents in 2018, the prevalence of hypertension among Chinese residents aged 18 and above is 18.8%, and the number of hypertensive patients in the country is expected to exceed 160 million.


About 60% of hypertension patients have a family history, which is currently believed to be caused by polygenic inheritance. In addition, long-term mental stress, excitement, anxiety, noise or poor visual stimulation and other factors can also cause the occurrence of high blood pressure. And the incidence rate tends to increase with age, especially those over 40 years old need to be vigilant.


Unreasonable dietary structure in life, such as excessive sodium, low-potassium diet, heavy drinking, and excessive intake of saturated fatty acids can also increase blood pressure. In addition, bad lifestyle habits, such as smoking, can accelerate the process of atherosclerosis. , Become a risk factor for high blood pressure.


With the improvement of residents' living standards and health awareness, many people will also pay attention to their own blood pressure problems. Sphygmomanometers are always available at home for blood pressure measurement. But middle-aged and elderly people often encounter the problem of inaccurate blood pressure measurement. What is the reason for this phenomenon?


The main reason is that a large part of the middle-aged and elderly population are patients with heart failure. Due to the weakness of the heart, the blood flow signal of such patients is much weaker than that of normal people. Therefore, these weak signals are easy to be ignored when measuring blood pressure. The measurement error occurs due to the blood flow signal.


In addition, other reasons can cause inaccuracy in blood pressure measurement, such as measurement time, blood pressure meter products, etc.


The blood pressure of a normal person is not fixed at different times of the day, so it is better to measure the blood pressure of the same arm at the same time point every day. Generally speaking, you can choose to take regular measurements after getting up in the morning or before going to bed at night.


For long-term monitoring of blood pressure values, it is recommended that the sphygmomanometer products used should be fixed and should not be replaced frequently to keep the standard consistent. Because different sphygmomanometers may have certain errors in the measurement. In addition, when middle-aged and elderly people choose sphygmomanometer products, it is best to choose products whose parameters can reach medical grade. This kind of sphygmomanometer will not have large errors even in the capture of weak blood flow signals.


Lepu's Jiashi sphygmomanometer is a sphygmomanometer specially designed for patients with heart failure. The unique monitor algorithm is designed with reference to the hospital ICU monitor equipment, and is optimized by Lepu’s 21 years of clinical experience in the cardiovascular field. In the measurement method, the stepped deflation measurement is made by imitating the mercury sphygmomanometer, which can find more The tiny blood flow signal escorts heart failure and postoperative patients!
