The British Hypertension Society has a track record of producing internationally renowned guidelines for the management of hypertension which are widely adopted in primary care in the UK and elsewhere.
(PRWEB) October 18, 2007
There are many blood pressure monitors available in the market-place today and all with a variety of recommended retail pricing, so how do you know which is the right one for you? It's not easy. Some offer one cuff fits all, others memory facilities, others with a large display screen, so how do you differentiate between say a £10 blood pressure monitor or one at £40 or more?
Perhaps one of the most distinguishing features about any blood pressure monitor is whether or not it is BHS validated. By this we don't mean validated by the famous high street chain British Home Stores, but by the British Hypertension Society.
The BHS provides a medical and scientific research forum to enable sharing of cutting-edge research in order to understand the origin of high blood pressure and improve its treatment. "The British Hypertension Society has a track record of producing internationally renowned guidelines for the management of hypertension which are widely adopted in primary care in the UK and elsewhere. "
As part of their increasing engagement in improving blood pressure measurement, the British Hypertension Society is undertaking active validation of new blood pressure devices for the measurement of blood pressure.
The British Hypertension Society website carries a list of all the blood pressure monitors that they have issued validation for and at the First Aid Warehouse we only stock blood pressure monitors from manufacturers who have products validated by the BHS, the manufacturers being A&D, Microlife and Omron.
