Hypertension Evaluation and Management
Detect, diagnose and manage hypertension with a comprehensive portfolio of office and home blood pressure solutions.
The accuracy of blood pressure readings can be impacted by several variables and can make a diagnosis of hypertension challenging. With recent changes to blood pressure guidelines from the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology, 46% of U.S. adults are now classified as hypertensive–and most don’t know it.1 Now, more than ever, you need a reliable portfolio of solutions that can deliver accurate blood pressure readings in the office and at home.
Learn how averaged, automated readings taken regularly can help detect, diagnose and manage hypertension.
Education & Research
Welch Allyn® Connex® Spot Monitor
The Welch Allyn Connex Spot Monitor helps physicians detect hypertension signs and symptoms and supports a diagnosis through accurate, automated and averaged blood pressure readings. Evidence suggests that manual, single-reading methods may not be sufficient for identifying and diagnosing hypertension.2 Our Welch Allyn SureBP® blood pressure averaging algorithm drives automated BP readings through the Connex Spot Monitor to capture readings in a way that, studies have shown, provides more decision support when detecting hypertension and making a diagnosis.3
Welch Allyn® ABPM 7100 Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitor
The Welch Allyn ABPM 7100 is an easy-to-use, 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring device. It’s designed to circumvent the effects of white coat hypertension and capture accurate sleep blood pressure readings to help diagnose hypertension and tailor drug therapy to a patient’s needs. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force calls ambulatory blood pressure monitoring ‘the best method for diagnosing hypertension’.4 The ABPM 7100 can help your patients capture multiple readings at home and strengthen a diagnosis.
Welch Allyn® Home® 1700 Blood Pressure Monitor
The Welch Allyn Home 1700 Series Blood Pressure Monitor is your ally in home blood pressure monitoring. Designed with the same SureBP® clinical-grade technology used in Welch Allyn vital signs monitors, our home blood pressure monitor captures BP readings more comfortably on cuff inflation in about 20 seconds. Regularly captured readings can be recorded and tracked within the Welch Allyn Home App through Bluetooth® connectivity, then shared with healthcare providers to monitor progress.
