What is Blood Pressure Monitoring?

Examining and monitoring blood pressure on a regular basis is known as blood pressure monitoring. It helps the patients and physicians to remain updated with a person’s overall health condition when the person is sick or injured. Blood pressure monitoring can be continuously done on a regular basis at home or at a doctor’s clinic.

As the blood is pumped down to the other parts of the body through the heart, the blood exerts some pressure on the walls of the arteries. A healthy body has a blood pressure level less than 120/80 mmHg. We all must take certain steps like Blood patient monitoring regularly at home to keep a check on our health as a single blood pressure reading cannot tell much about our health.

The non-invasive blood pressure monitoring devices provide 24-hour monitoring and provide a broader picture of one’s health.
  • Invasive intra-arterial pressure (IAP) monitoring: This is a way of measuring blood pressure through a catheter in an artery that is placed in the wrist. This is one of the most used ways of monitoring blood pressure in certain major surgeries like open-heart surgery.
