Hypertension and the Coronavirus (Covid-19)
WHY REMOTE MONITORING AND EARLY DETECTION ARE KEY IN THE FIGHT AGAINST THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK
The novel coronavirus has been sweeping the globe in recent months and people with high blood pressure are at heightened risk for more severe complications should they contract Covid-19.
In fact, The CDC's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report from February 12 to March 28 showed that 9% of Covid-19 patients in the United States also self-reported a diagnosis of cardiovascular disease.
High blood pressure is the most common type of heart disease. It affects almost one of every two American adults, according to the CDC.
THE POWER OF REMOTE PATIENT MONITORING AND EARLY DETECTION
The Covid-19 crisis demonstrates how critical remote monitoring and early detection are. Identifying that patients may be suffering from hypertension and consequently may be at a higher risk for contracting Covid-19 and for becoming critically ill is critical.
