Medaval Supports May Measurement Month, the global awareness campaign, let by the International Society of Hypertension and endorsed by the World Hypertension League.
The No 1 contributing risk for global deaths is High Blood Pressure.
10 Million people worldwide die each year due to high blood pressure.
Approx 50% or half of all those with High Blood Pressure are aware that they have it.
It has been referred to as the biggest epidemic none to mankind.
A blood pressure monitor is used to diagnose High blood pressure (Hypertension)
But not all blood pressure monitors are accurate.
However, all assumptions relating to the diagnosis and the management of High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) and its treatment is dependent on Blood Pressure Devices that are in fact accurate.
Medaval provides the only registry on all available blood pressure monitors sold worldwide.
We have therefore concluded, that over 80% of all Blood Pressure Monitors (BPM’s) sold on the market today, are not proven to be accurate, and the market needs regulation.
It is therefore essential to check , if your Blood pressure monitor, as listed by us, is a accurate device.
