Did you know that nearly 800,000 strokes were recorded in the US last year? And that is the average for every. Single. Year.
Yet, healthcare professionals say that 80% of those are preventable!
AWARENESS, that is what it is all about.
May is Stroke Awareness Month and I’ve partnered with Omron to introduce their mission: GOING FOR ZERO!
Hypertension is a major risk factor for strokes and those that have high blood pressure are more than one and a half times more likely to have a stroke.
Jeff’s grandpa had 2 strokes that completely changed his life and later resulted in his grandfather’s passing. He has a very strong history of heart disease and it’s definitely not something I take lightly. And neither does Jeff. That’s why I immediately said YES when Omron asked to work with me to help them spread the word about their mission GOING FOR ZERO!
An initiative to eliminate heart attacks and stroke by building AWARENESS and driving EDUCATION about the link between high blood pressure and cardiovascular diseases, including heart attack and stroke. You can monitor your blood pressure at-home with their incredible new wireless upper-arm blood pressure monitoring cuff. The Omron EVOLV, the latest innovation from Omron Healthcare, Inc. who by the way is the global category leader in personal heart health and wellness technology. The Omron EVOLV is a portable, wireless upper-arm blood pressure monitor that is clinically validated for accuracy and has received FDA clearance. With no tubes, wires or tabletop unit, the new sleek, one-piece EVOLV blood pressure monitor easily fits on the upper arm and clearly displays a blood pressure reading on the face of the device with a press of a button.
I have pledged to take my blood pressure at least once a week for 6 weeks and YOU SHOULD TOO!
The Omron Connect App allows me to store, track and share my heart health data with my doctors for deeper heart health insights which can lead to better treatment, and better outcomes. The app works via Bluetooth, so I don’t have to log my readings in a notebook but can easily sync my readings from my connected Omron device to the app with a click of a button. The app also helps to chart and graph my data for me, so I can track it over time and view the trends in my numbers. Then I can easily email my heart health data to my doctors or family members in real-time as needed. These are my records so far! I love being able to look at them! Not sure what the irregular heart beat is…maybe from my preworkout! Oh dear!
