The blood pressure monitor is a useful tool for measuring blood pressure. Used by doctors and nurses to monitor the health of patients, it is also useful for home use. Having a blood pressure monitor at home allows you to detect - at any time - information on systolic (maximum) and diastolic (minimum) pressure. Let's get to know the blood pressure monitor in more detail: what it is and how to use it.

What is blood pressure monitor? Types and uses

There are different types of pressure gauges on the market, from manual and analogue to electronic and automatic ones. The first type already requires a good knowledge of the instrument (not surprisingly it is often preferred by healthcare personnel), the second type is recommended for those who are new to blood pressure measurement due to its ease of use (just turn it on and does everything in an automated way). 

Both types of blood pressure monitors have the objective of detecting the patient's blood pressure and verifying that the maximum and minimum fall within the parameters:

  • Systolic (or maximum) pressure: 115-120 mmHg
  • Diastolic blood pressure (or minimum): 75-80 mmHg
