Blood Pressure Chart: New Application
According to Consumer Reports, there is clear evidence about the advantages of using applications in blood pressure monitoring.
People were given a device for checking their blood pressure. It plugged into a phone jack, and automatically sent off the results, allowing patients and their doctors to keep track of their scores online. After six months of treatment, people using the device saw the top number of their blood pressure reading (their systolic blood pressure) drop by 12.9 mmHg. People receiving the usual treatment from their doctor saw a drop of just 9.2 mmHg—a difference of 3.7 mmHg.
