Alvis has been recently diagnosed with heart disease and has seen some dangerously high blood pressure readings on several doctor visits. In addition to medications, his primary care physician strongly suggests that he have his blood pressure checked on a regular basis. Alvis is not keen on the idea of making more trips to the doctor even at the urging of his family. Some family members are openly asking whether he is still capable of caring for himself.
But Alvis is smart. Alvis found a blood pressure monitoring system that would automatically record his blood pressure and share with the doctor. With this approach, Alvis can take multiple readings each day and schedule a doctor visit only when the readings are dangerously high or trending high.
Alvis is happy.
