In the World of Home Medical Supplies, Which Monitor Is Best for You? , Richmond, Kentucky

According to the American Heart Association, nearly 80 million Americans have been diagnosed with high blood pressure (HBP), otherwise known as hypertension. Often referred to as “the silent killer,” HBP can cause numerous health problems, including congestive heart failure, strokes, peripheral artery disease and kidney damage.

This is why at-home blood pressure monitoring is so important. EZ Care Medical, a full-service online store offering medical supplies and assistive devices to health care professionals, has a large selection of models to fit your budget and help you care for your patients. 

There are two main types of blood pressure monitors: aneroid and digital.

Aneroid Monitors

Aneroid monitors are inexpensive and portable. However, they are also delicate and must be positioned perfectly to provide an accurate result. 

If you’re looking to purchase new medical supplies, EZ Care Medical carries eight different types of aneroid monitors, including a 2-party home blood pressure kit, wall-mounted models with easily adjustable gauges and a fanny pack combination kit that’s perfect for nurses, EMT’s and medical students.

Digital Monitors

medical suppliesDigital monitors measure blood pressure levels using a small computer system. A cuff is attached to the patient’s arm or wrist and a unique chip inside the monitor tracks emissions inside the cuff, converting the results to the final reading. Digital monitors inflate and deflate automatically, making them easy to use. There aren’t too many disadvantages to this type of model, but it tends to be more expensive. 

At EZ Care Medical’s medical supplies website, you’ll find four different types of digital blood pressure monitors, including models that use a cuff around the upper arm and wrist. You can choose from a fully automatic or semi-automatic monitor, depending on your needs.

No matter what medical supplies you need, you’ll find the highest quality home health equipment at EZ Care Medical. Call (859) 626-8957 if you have any questions, or visit the website to browse through the large selection of assistive devices.
