Home blood pressure monitors show mixed results: study
- Navy officer dies on board INS Kolkata off Mumbai
- Subrata Roy to remain in Tihar, Supreme Court calls Sahara's proposal "dishonourable"
- Arvind Kejriwal stopped on way to meet Narendra Modi
- Modi's next round of Chai pe charcha doesn't have police permission yet
- SC issues notice to Centre on Kiran Reddy's PIL against creation of Telangana
Many people with high blood pressure already have home monitors, and these findings don't mean that stroke survivors can't benefit, although a person left disabled by a stroke may be not the best candidate, said Hayden Bosworth, a professor of medicine at Duke University, who was not part of the study.
And for a monitor to benefit anyone, the numbers have to be put to good use, he added. That means a healthcare provider has to know what they are and make any needed adjustments to a patient's medications.
