Measuring and monitoring your blood pressure at home is important for managing and taking preventative measures for high blood pressure, also known as hypertension. Having a home monitor is convenient and helps to ensure that you are taking control of your blood pressure in between doctor's visits. Measuring at home in a familiar setting, and where you feel safe, involves less pressure than at a doctor's office. It is also helpful to see if your medication is working properly. In fact, not only is self-monitoring more comfortable and relaxing, but it can also help to decrease the number of visits to your doctor or clinic.
