Would you buy a GP device and trust that you can help to control your health?


The Bright shown in the video what you could measure oxygen saturation (?) is nice but unless you have a chronic heart failure or a chronic lung disease of no importance, your pulse is separate from everything tells me as a doctor nothing, so for me this is still an unproven Hype, like many Fitbit-like wearables are currently too.

However, one is busy wearables to unwrap that BVB.Continuously measure blood sugar values and jot down an app, measure your blood pressure reliability , these wearables will not be cheap, but might be useful to some people.

Really useful, even optimal are these wearables only if they are linked to an intelligent network, where artificial intelligence (AI) in response to a trend of results over the past time can strike an alarm which allows a human monitor Is alerted and looks at your results, and if necessary you call for an early check, or immediately give an accompanying advice eg.Dose adjustment of medications, very useful in heart failure patients.

For people who are treated for elevated blood pressure it may be useful to have a validated (i.e. not so-鈩?n El cheapo thing from a grocery store or at the drugstore which has never been shown to give 芒 鈧劉 t reliable readings) blood pressure meter suitable For home measuring blood pressure for about 芒 ‘ 卢 100,-buy.A list of approved gauges can be found at dabl Educational Trust | Monitors for Self-Measurement of Blood Pressure (SBPM) Of for Home Use-British and Irish Hypertension Society | Registered UK Charity No. 287635
By measuring your blood pressure a few times a month, and noting the outcome, you can help your GP to optimally set your blood pressure.You can also have more ascending blood pressure on the track and come to your GP before discussing whether and what to do about it.

For insulin using diabets, a blood sugar meter is an essential device for adjusting the insulin dose.

When my ex was pregnant with our daughter, we were given the advice of the gynaecologist to rent or buy a blood pressure device, rather far in pregnancy.So moesr they check her blood pressure three times a day.

It may sound a bit stupid, but we reasoned that for our baby only the best of the best was good enough.

So we bought the most expensive handset we found.

Back home we went to test the device.We followed the accompanying instructions accurately and to our surprise we read a figure where my ex could not be alive. We tried again and we also got an impossible result. Then I tried it several times in succession and got very different results.

Then just rent one from the Health insurance Fund.The thing worked perfectly.

Furthermore, I am totally not interested in the health hype of apps that measure all sorts of things.I do feel it if I am not in order.

It depends on the device. It has to do a measurement that can easily be done yourself and the results of which are unambiguous. For example, a thermometer.That measures your temperature and more than that. Or a heart rate meter so you know your heart rate if you are a cardiac patient. As soon as there is room for your own interpretation you have to be careful. Then you can go better to a GP. And even general practitioners do not read their equipment wrong.

Since I have been in a hospital three times a week, where my health is monitored, I do not see the necessity of Zo芒 鈧劉 n machine for myself.

That does not mean, however, that I am opposed to automation, although I believe that human health can be judged best by an educated fellow man.

In sparsely populated areas, Zo芒 鈧劉 n device would in any case be an alternative to the lack of care right next door.

Given the developments in care, these types of developments (in this case how I snap an Amazon Echo but then purely medically) are not unthinkable.

On the eye it seems pretty good.Your vital functions are checked and you will be told what to do. This is just as useful when you have a blood pressure monitor, scales and other measuring instruments in your home and know what to look out for.

To aggregate it all and get more medical with it, seems like an interesting idea, but there are some hordes that have to be taken in my eyes:

  • Medical information will always be in our own management (or the person who has a power of attorney).

I would like to determine who has some level of understanding of my medical state. Whether it is the surgeon, the GP or the insurance. The company that supplies the equipment should not be allowed to do so either.

  • This data will need to be stored as safely as possible.
  • With my (very) limited knowledge it would be the first to come up with the techniques of ProtonMail and Digi-D. Popustischerer answer: Blockchain!! But don’t shoot me at it please.

  • If you have your data in your own hands, it is useful if it is stored in a way that doctors have what to do, if doctors can write down in a way that other specialists can also do.
  • Many institutions nationally and internationally have completely different systems, protocols and methods. Example: I have done in the past in 脙 漏 脙 漏 N Hospital an MRI… for a second opinion I then went to another hospital with a DVD of my MRI.. The settings of the device were not fine for the doctor and basically the MRI had to be over.

    In short: interesting and possibly much needed technique to keep care effective in the near future or to make it more effective.But as long as the data ownership is not guaranteed. Do I adjust

    I did wonder and bought a smartwatch.

    After a few months I’ll be out.Toys. Not much more than vague indicative, and reason for consultation with a real physician. More than that.. For the time being.

    More expensive equipment could do something, but then, are you going to the doctor, or do you fool through the Internet?

    In short, let me answer your question with 芒 鈧?虄rather Not芒 鈧劉

    So a device what a GP has in his practice?Not likely, usually too expensive and takes up too much space (such as an ultrasound device what some doctors have, in Germany anyway). If it wasn’t expensive and great I might be buying it. Like other things that are not so difficult to use and that require little skill (I have laboratory experience so know I can do something).

    Other things, like a stethoscope, require training and experience to be able to do something meaningful, so I wouldn’t start.


    No patient of my dad managed to accurately measure his own blood pressure with expensive self-purchased meters.

    His own attempt indicated that I had passed away for three days.

    I don’t trust my GP and a device at all.
