For patients with long-term hypertension
Minnesota developed a device that can regulate blood pressure. It is called the Rheos system, and its function is called Rheos therapy. It is a device implanted to signal the nervous system for high blood pressure.
As a response, the brain will counteract. The brain will signal the heart to dilate the blood vessels and reduce the heart rate, which will result in lowering the blood pressure.
This device runs through a generator implanted under the collarbone and connected with two sinus leads implanted to the neck part. After the trials and evaluation, the Rheos system as a blood pressure equipment is accurate and effective. It also prevents further complications, such as diabetes, kidney failure, heart diseases, and death. Moreover, Rheos therapy is an option for people with uncontrollable hypertension through medications.
In the past 50 years, different types of blood pressure equipment have been prevalent in markets. From manual use of devices to automated and digital that is easy to use. Some are available to use at home because it is automatic and portable. Aside from that, there is a device development that can manage hypertension.
However, consultations and questions to doctors are still much more recommended than measuring blood pressure by yourself.
