Measuring blood pressure, especially in older age, can prevent vascular accidents, discover diseases before they get worse, and help for better well-being in everyday life.

But those who think that only the elderly have problems with blood pressure are mistaken. Younger people are capable of developing hypertension due to health problems and/or their sedentary lifestyle with an inappropriate diet.

Not to mention hypotension, which carries less risk of stroke, but can interfere a lot with day-to-day activities, and even indicate anemia.

Having control and everything written down to take to the doctor’s office can help speed up treatment, medicine adjustment, and discovery of diseases.

 

Therefore, today, we brought some apps that will help you to have better control of your blood pressure. Check them out:

1- Blood Pressure More Health

With our first app, Blood Pressure Plus Health, the user will be able to measure his or her blood pressure easily, keeping track of his or her heart rate.

The daily control of the pressure can contribute to better health maintenance with the doctor you trust, taking the blood pressure report to him.

2- AMPA (Automatic Blood Pressure Measurement)

The AMPA app was developed by Brazilian cardiologists aiming to help the population prevent blood pressure control because hypertension has been causing thousands of deaths a year.

To help the user in controlling blood pressure, the app brings the possibility to enter the pressure data at a moment’s notice and share it with the doctor who performs the treatment.

The app is very well regarded among cardiologists, helping in the diagnosis, prognosis, and therapeutic control of hypertension.

The app helps in the following conditions:

  • Before the consultation (online or in person);
  • With the evaluation of the response to antihypertensive treatment;
  • To increase patient compliance to treatment;
  • To watch out for values above 130/85 mmHg, which, by AMPA, should be considered altered;
