Digital Blood Pressure Monitor Market: Introduction
Blood pressure monitoring is a self-monitoring tool or device that can be used for care of patients with hypertension. The blood pressure is primarily monitored at home or outside a hospital, clinic, or office setting. Traditionally, blood pressure is measured using a mercury manometer. However, with the advancement of technology, digital blood pressure monitors are employed with oscillometric measurements and electronic calculations rather than auscultation. The digital blood pressure monitors are easy to use and read compared to aneroid monitors. The digital blood pressure monitors provide systolic and diastolic blood pressure values and pulse rate reading.
