Home blood pressure monitors show mixed results: study

Blood pressure

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.
