Everyone needs a home blood pressure machine.
Here are two websites that you can go to get a list of accurate blood pressure machines to purchase:
- Validated blood pressure monitors
- “STRIDE BP is an international scientific non-profit organization founded by hypertension experts with the mission of improving the accuracy of blood pressure measurement and the diagnosis and management of hypertension. STRIDE BP provides international guidance and practice tools on the methodology and technology for accurate blood pressure evaluation according to the latest scientific evidence.”
- validatebp.org – US Blood Pressure Validated Device Listing
- “Uncontrolled high blood pressure (“BP”) is the leading risk factor for death and disability. The accurate measurement of BP is essential for the diagnosis and management of hypertension. One important aspect of accurate measurement is whether the BP measurement device has been validated for clinical accuracy.To address this challenge, the American Medical Association (AMA) enlisted the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago (NORC) to assist in the design and management of an independent process to determine which BP devices available in the U.S. meet the AMA’s established criteria to validate clinical accuracy (the “Validated Device Listing (VDL) Criteria”). An Independent Review Committee comprised of physician experts in the BP field assesses whether a BP device satisfies the VDL Criteria for validation of clinical accuracy. This independent review process results in a formal list of BP devices that have been validated for clinical accuracy (the “US Blood Pressure Validated Device Listing” or “VDL”).”
