Detecting Hypertension: Explore An Interactive Patient Journey

Hypertension is complex and can present in many ways, making proper blood pressure (BP) techniques and measurement tools vital for more accurate diagnoses. But that begs the question — is your practice using the best tools for more efficient, accurate vitals capture?

A trend towards fewer in-person PCP visits mean it’s vital to make every interaction count. That’s why having the right equipment to detect conditions faster and more accurately is more important than ever. Capturing and averaging blood pressure readings can be error-prone and time-consuming if performed with manual auscultation. Studies show fully automated oscillometric devices capable of taking multiple readings — even without an observer present — may provide more accurate BP measurements.1 With this in mind, it’s important to consider what devices can help make these more accurate readings a reality.

Access our interactive patient story to see how manual vitals capture methods compare to an automated solution — the difference in efficiency, hypertension decision-support and reading accuracy may surprise you. See for yourself.
