A basic first-aid box and a thermometer at the most, were the two items related to healthcare that we preferred keeping at home. But now-a-days, as we choose to take charge of our health, we also have opted to keep some medical devices at home that would help us monitor our vitals on a day-to-day basis.
Here are a few medical devices that we commonly prefer at our home –
Blood Pressure Device –
Also known as the Sphygmomanometer, a blood pressure monitor helps check our blood pressure levels at regular intervals. Cardiac arrests, high blood pressure, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases doesn’t hold as a hereditary disease anymore. With the erratic life cycle and food habits, blood pressure is always on the rise. Clinical studies have found that an average of 8 out of 10 people suffer from either systolic or diastolic blood pressure.
A digital automated blood pressure monitor easily measures both systolic or diastolic with accuracy in a matter of minutes. It is not possible to visit a doctor frequently, hence a device in home would be handy.
Blood Glucose Monitor –
A blood glucose monitor is also called a Glucometer. This allows you to measure blood sugar levels and keep a track of it at the comfort of your home. You can maintain a record sheet and share it with your doctor at the next visit for right medical assessment. This device is a popular necessity, especially among insulin dependants.
With the increasing air population, respiratory diseases are on the rise. Nebulisers helps administer medications to be inhaled into lungs. These are life-saving medication devices for asthma patients and those suffering from COPD (any pulmonary diseases). Also if your child is diagnosed with bronchitis or asthma, a paediatric nebuliser can be of great help.
Weighing Scales –
A weighing scale is quite a simple device and it measures weight. But is it really a necessary everyday health device? How well can it monitor health?
Body weight tells a lot about health. This device is crucial in monitoring weight over a period of time. A sudden loss in weight (if you are nor aiming for weight-loss) may indicate a number of illness such as viral or parasitic infections, gut abnormalities, celiac disease, depression, bowel diseases, diabetes, hyperthyroidism or even cancer. It is, therefore, very important to keep body weight on check.
Baby Forehead Thermometer –
Thermometers have always been a handy health monitoring device. But our conventional thermometers can get a little difficult when handling a fussy baby with fever. It is safe and convenient to get hold of a baby forehead thermometer. The temperature can be read in a few seconds on the digital screen by holding the thermometer against the baby’s forehead.
