How QardioArm can help manage dad’s blood pressure condition

How often do you worry about your father checking his blood pressure? High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, affects 60% of men over the age of 65, and is a risk factor for many other health problems such as stroke, heart attack, heart failure, and kidney disease.

Therefore, it is extremely important to monitor blood pressure. While eating healthy, working out, not smoking, and limiting alcohol consumption help lower the risk of developing high blood pressure, once hypertension has been diagnosed, it’s likely to stay for life and so is the need to monitor it to keep it in check.

Thankfully, the smart blood pressure monitor QardioArm makes BP monitoring easy through the convenience of a smartphone or tablet and has some great functionalities that allow you to know when your father checks his blood pressure and what his numbers are. Here are the features you should know about and that will help you look after your dad’s heart easily.

QardioArm is the only blood pressure monitor that keeps track of irregular heartbeats detected during measurements.

The free Qardio App is integrated with Apple Health and Samsung Health and supports iOS, Android and Kindle. QardioArm supports Apple Watch and Android Wear, so checking on your father’s blood pressure is as easy as checking the time.
