Keeping the pressure off : Omron Smart Elite+ HEM-7600T Review + Giveaway




High Blood Pressure and High Cholesterol are synonymous with Singaporeans age 35 and over.


It is hardly surprising given the level of stress we face at work or home. The rich diet does not help either in this case. Personally I had been diagnosed with both when I was just 36 and had to change my lifestyle and diet to bring the numbers down. 

For the level of cholesterol, it would be difficult to measure as you would need test for it. As for the silent yet deadly accomplice,  using a blood pressure monitor would mean you can read your pressure on the spot. With one in four adults(23.5 per cent)  here diagnosed with high blood pressure, it is one you need to monitor consistently.

What does the number mean?

Blood Pressure is measured with 2 numbers. The number on top (systolic) and the one on the bottom (diastolic) is similar to a fraction. A reading could be something like 115/75. The top number refers to the amount of pressure in your arteries during contraction of heart muscle while the bottom refers to your blood pressure when your heart muscle is between beats.



High blood pressure increases your risk of stroke and heart disease. Starting from prehypertension stage, you need to monitor your blood pressure closely to ensure it stays within range or seek medical advice if it deviates. On the flip side , if your pressure is too low, it will lead to hypotension and can be dangerous as your body is not supplying your heart and body with enough oxygenated blood.
Old Omron Blood Pressure Device

Blood pressure is normally measured off a blood pressure machine. Personally I owned an Omron machine and it  should be a familiar sight for people monitoring blood pressure. Using a device like this means you have to deal with wires and tubes that may be incorrectly fitted. As one who had been using one of these machine, it was not an easy task to do a measurement by yourself especially when it comes to the attachment of the tube to the arm.
Omron Smart Elite+ Hem-7600T
Omron Smart Elite+ HEM-7600T revolutionize Blood Pressure monitoring.  Redesigning how blood pressure should be monitored, it takes accurate reading in any position around the upper arm and even track progress via smartphone so you can keep a record . If I had this before my diagnosis, I would probably catch the medical issue at an earlier stage. For the record, I was diagnosed with a reading of 140/92 that puts me on High Blood Pressures (Hypertension) Stage 1 !
