Blood Pressure Monitors Provide Important Information
Blood pressure monitors measure and often save information that will help a doctor make important decisions about patients. Blood pressure is an important vital sign that is usually measured at every visit to a doctor. The nurse will usually take the blood pressure of a patient before any other business is completed at a doctor’s office. Sometimes patients are nervous when they are at the doctor’s office and the blood pressure measurements are not accurate. The doctor will often recommend that a patient get a blood pressure monitor if the numbers are high. These devices can then be used at home when the patient is more relaxed.
