Growing up I was always super active. I played multiple sports a season and played all year round. I always ate healthy, worked out and naturally felt invincible. Despite a couple of joint injuries I really had no known health issues, except when I went off to college.
I began to have these hypotension episodes where I would get a five-second warning, loose my vision, fall, sweat, and then I would slowly go back to normal. The first couple times it happened I ignored it until it started happening in public places like the grocery store. I always knew I had lower blood pressure, which I was always told was a good thing….until you have symptoms.
I immediately went to my doctor where she ran a ton of tests, brain MRI, MRA, EKG and more. When I found out it was most likely my blood pressure suddenly dropping even lower than it already was, I knew I had to keep tabs on my blood pressure daily. That’s when I found out about QardioArm and I knew I had to check it out.
What Is QardioArm?
QardioArm is a smart blood pressure monitor that measures systolic, diastolic blood pressure, heart rate and irregular heartbeat. It’s FDA approved and meets US and European standards. As soon as I received my device I was super excited. QardioArm is lightweight and is small enough to bring with you on the go. One cool feature is that you can geo-track your readings across location as well as the time when you take your blood pressure on the go.
Simple To Use
When you first get your device you are going to want to download the free Qardio app that is available for apple and android users. Then, once downloaded, simply touch your smartphone or tablet to your QardioArm for a one-step setup. It’s literally that easy.
I like to put the band on my left arm always. If you are sitting, place your feet flat on the floor and rest your arm out at heart level. Press start and the armband will tighten and your reading will be recorded.
All of your readings are stored automatically in Qardio’s secure, HIPAA compliant cloud. You can always view your trends, charts and averages right on your screen for actionable health management. Your results will be recorded up against the World Health Organization chart for an easy-to-understand interpretation and follow your trends with simple graphs and charts.
With QardioArm you can guarantee that you are getting medically accurate readings that you can share with your doctors. I can confidently say that I feel comfortable putting my full trust in this device.
Some of my absolute favorite features include being able to set goals and reminders, track irregularities or perform triple measurement averaging. The Qardio App is full of extremely useful features, making blood pressure management quick and easy.
I have to say I am totally obsessed with QardioArm. Before I had QardioArm I was only taking my blood pressure when I went to the doctor. Now, I am able to take it whenever and wherever. I was always embarrassed to buy a blood pressure monitor at 26, but because of the sleek design, I have to say I am not at all embarrassed. I’m now able to keep track of what my blood pressure is in the morning, during the day, in the afternoon and more.
Thank you Qardio for changing my life! You deserve to take control of your health too…you won’t regret it!
