Hampton - Recommended Blood Pressure Monitors


Background

Currently, patients are monitored by frequent visits to the hospital to have their blood pressure and urine checked, this can be both inconvenient for patients and time-consuming. Monitoring women from home save both money, but more importantly, time for clinicians and women, this also means face to face visits only need to be conducted when required. However, It is important that the blood pressure machines women use are approved and safe to use during pregnancy. Therefore K2 has provided information to Blood pressure monitors that are approved for the use in Pregnancy to make the process of finding approved machines easier for you.
