The hidden dangers of masked hypertension: how undetected high blood pressure can wreak havoc

Masked hypertension is a complex condition that often goes unnoticed, but can pose significant health risks. This phenomenon occurs when individuals have normal blood pressure readings in a clinical setting, but experience higher values ​​in their daily lives. This discrepancy makes it challenging to diagnose and can lead to serious complications […]

Diastolic blood pressure (negative pressure), what does that mean?

Diastolic blood pressure is the blood pressure measured between two heartbeats. It is also called negative pressure. This is the lowest blood pressure in the blood vessels and is measured when the heart relaxes. A healthy diastolic blood pressure is between 60 and 80 mmHg. If your diastolic pressure is too high, it may indicate an elevated […]

Systolic blood pressure (top pressure), what does that mean?

Systolic blood pressure is the top value in a blood pressure reading. This value indicates how much pressure the blood exerts on the walls of the arteries when the heart contracts. This value is also called upper pressure. It is the top value measured in a blood pressure measurement. the other is diastolic blood pressure. Diastolic blood pressure is […]

What is Pulse Pressure?

Pulse pressure, also known as pulse pressure (PP), is an important indicator of the health of the heart and blood vessels. It is the difference between systolic blood pressure (the pressure in the arteries during the heartbeat) and diastolic blood pressure (the pressure in the arteries during the resting phase of the heart). The pulse pressure depends […]

What is Tachycardia?

Tachycardia is a heart rhythm disorder in which the heart beats faster than normal. A normal heart rhythm is between 60 and 100 beats per minute. In tachycardia, the heart beats faster than 100 beats per minute. There are different types of tachycardia, including sinus tachycardia and atrial fibrillation. Sinus tachycardia is an increased heart rate caused by the sinus node, the […]

Children's blood pressure values

As with adults, a child's blood pressure can be either too high (hypertension) or too low (hypotension). Regular blood pressure measurements are therefore also of great importance in children. What are normal values ​​for a child's blood pressure? The table below gives an overview of the upper limit of normal values ​​for the blood pressure of […]

Compare measured blood pressure values ​​with the measurement of the doctor

It is one of the most frequently asked questions we get. The blood pressure values ​​measured by the blood pressure monitor do not correspond to the values ​​measured by the doctor or general practitioner. Does my blood pressure monitor measure accurately? We can answer the question with 'Yes'. The blood pressure monitor you have purchased measures accurately. The blood pressure monitors we supply are clinically validated. That […]

What is atrial fibrillation?

Atrial fibrillation, also called atrial fibrillation, is a heart rhythm disorder. In this cardiac arrhythmia, the heart beats irregularly and not in a steady rhythm as might be expected. This has all sorts of negative consequences for your health. Ultimately, this can even lead to a stroke. What can cause atrial fibrillation? The heart consists of four compartments where the blood […]
