World Heart Day 2022: Measure your blood pressure regularly using new Beurer products
If your blood pressure is constantly too high, this can be dangerous for your cardiovascular system. The symptoms of hypertension often go unnoticed for a long time, and if left untreated they can be the cause of serious illnesses such as stroke and heart attack. Your blood pressure and heart rhythm (the most important parameters of heart health) should therefore be regularly monitored by a doctor or using your own measurements at home, and the values documented for long-term monitoring.
To inform people around the world about this important topic, each year World Heart Day takes place on 29 September. The campaign is an initiative from the World Heart Federation (WHF), in which heart foundations, including Deutsche Herzstiftung e.V. (German Heart Foundation), and cardiology associations from over 100 countries have joined forces. The aim is to provide information about cardiovascular diseases and their risk factors, as well as tips on prevention.
Blood pressure monitors for a healthy day-to-day life
To make it easier to monitor blood pressure at home, Beurer has two new wrist blood pressure monitors in its range – the smart "Connect" model BC 87 Bluetooth® and the BC 27, a high-quality basic device. Both products enable fully automatic measurement of your blood pressure on your wrist, and are easy to use and practical. Two user memories, each with space for 120 measured values for the BC 87 Bluetooth®, and 60 measured values for the BC 27, provide a perfect overview. A coloured risk indicator helps you correctly assess the results. In addition, the devices' arrhythmia detection function indicates possible heart rhythm irregularities.
BC 87 Bluetooth®: Smart and particularly comfortable
The new BC 87 Bluetooth® also impresses with a position indicator, which ensures the ideal measuring position at heart level before the measurement. Thanks to the inflation technology, you are provided with ultimate comfort during measurement thanks to gentle pressure build-up and fast measuring times. The patented resting indicator checks the resting state during measurement. All measured values can then be transferred to the "beurer HealthManager Pro" app. This means that the data can be processed clearly and graphically, and monitored over a longer period of time using your smartphone or taken with you directly when you next visit the doctor. The additional "beurer MyHeart" smart service helps you to integrate a healthier lifestyle into your everyday life. Daily inspiration, exercise and nutrition tips accompany users on the path to greater health awareness.
BM 96 Cardio: Keep an eye on your heart's health
The BM 96 Cardio 2-in-1 device can be used to check the two most important parameters of heart health at home: Blood pressure and heart rhythm. The inflation technology provides the utmost measuring comfort, and the integrated risk indicator helps you interpret the results. The patented resting indicator also guarantees precise measurement values. Advanced arrhythmia detection also alerts you to atrial fibrillation – a key indicator to prevent strokes. The BM 96 Cardio can not only measure blood pressure, but it also has a 1-channel ECG function. An ECG stick can be used to record heart rhythm over 30-120 seconds and to create an electrocardiogram (ECG). This enables changes in heart rhythm to be detected early and further examinations to be carried out by a doctor. The data obtained can be transferred to the "beurer HealthManager Pro" app via Bluetooth®. The "beurer MyCardio Pro" service also provides users with tailored analyses of their ECG measurements using certified algorithms, allowing for optimal monitoring of their heart health.
