Monitor & Control your Blood Pressure


As part of the healthcare world it is our duty to increase people’s awareness of the health situation. Sadly, we have to say that today, hypertension already affects one billion people worldwide, leading to heart attacks and strokes. Researchers had estimated that raised blood pressure currently kills 9 million people every year. The World Health Organization rates hypertension as one of the most important causes of premature death worldwide and the problem is growing. In 2025 it is estimated there will be 1.56 billion adults living with high blood pressure.

Globally, cardiovascular disease accounts for approximately 17 million deaths a year, nearly one third of the total. Of these, complications of hypertension accounts for 9.4 million deaths worldwide every year. Hypertension is responsible for at least 45% of deaths due to heart disease, and 51% of deaths due to stroke.

On the other hand, high blood pressure (hypertension) is one of the most important preventable causes of premature death worldwide. In most countries, up to 30% of adults suffer from high blood pressure and a further 50% to 60% would be in better health if they reduce their blood pressure, by increasing physical activity, maintaining an ideal body weight and eating more fruits and vegetables. Also, for every 10 people who die of stroke, 4 could have been saved if their blood pressure had been regulated.

Death rates from coronary heart disease and stroke have decreased in many western European countries due to improved prevention, diagnosis and treatment, lowering the levels of blood pressure and blood cholesterol. If hypertension is detected early it is possible to minimize the risk of heart attack, heart failure, stroke and kidney failure. It is highly recommended that all adults should check their blood pressure and know their blood pressure levels constantly, and to achieve this CITIZEN Digital BPM make it more easy making the control on daily basis and at the comfort of our home.

Pregnancy is also a stage of life which needs a constant control of the Blood Pressure. Although many pregnant women with high blood pressure have healthy babies without serious problems, high blood pressure can be dangerous for both the mother and the fetus. Women with pre-existing, or chronic, high blood pressure are more likely to have certain complications during pregnancy than those with normal blood pressure. However, some women develop high blood pressure while they are pregnant (often called gestational hypertension). The effects of high blood pressure range from mild to severe. High blood pressure can harm the mother’s kidneys and other organs, and it can cause low birth weight and early delivery.
