A&D Medical Supports Global High Blood Pressure Awareness Month with New Consumer Resources

SAN JOSE, Calif., May 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In support of May Measurement Month (MMM) and World Hypertension Day, A&D Medical, a global leader in connected health and biometric measurement devices and services, is unveiling a series of new resources on its website to help consumers who want to better monitor and manage their blood pressure.

Though heart disease remains the number one cause of death globally, reports from the American Heart Association (AHA) suggest that around 50 percent of people with hypertension (or high blood pressure) do not know they have it.

Under new AHA guidelines announced last year, the definition of high blood pressure is lower, and the number of adults considered to have high blood pressure has increased - especially among adults under the age of 45.

This May, the AHA is launching a campaign to log three million blood pressure checks to encourage adults to know their numbers.

"We are proud to support the National High Blood Pressure Education Month initiative to better understand hypertension and what an individual's blood pressure means for long-term heart health," said Terry Duesterhoeft, president and CEO of A&D Company - Americas. "From our work with healthcare providers, we know that consistent monitoring is key: Even if people have elevated blood pressure levels, early intervention typically means more serious complications can be avoided. With that in mind, we've compiled a series of resources for consumers to tap into as they participate in blood pressure educational initiatives this month."

Resources from A&D Medical can be accessed on the company's new website:

    --  A&D Medical Blog: Exploring a wide range of educational topics, the new
        blog provides consumers with information related to advancements in
        technology and health.
    --  How-to Videos: For consumers who want a step-by-step visual tutorial on
        taking an accurate blood pressure and weight readings at home, this
        collection of videos can provide a one-stop resource.
    --  Tips & Ideas: This section of the website offers everything from
        provider recommendations for lowering blood pressure to heart-healthy
        recipes.
    --  Resource Center: This library allows consumers to compare product
        features and benefits, as well as purchase new products.
