High Blood Pressure After Acute Ischemic Stroke Is Associated With Poor Clinical Outcomes

Recently published data from the Fukuoka Stroke Registry in Japan clearly suggest that a high poststroke blood pressure was significantly associated with unfavourable clinical outcomes in patients with acute ischemic stroke. This indicates the importance of thorough blood pressure monitoring in these patients.

Telemonitoring could play a major role here: patients do not need to travel whilst they are safely monitored by healthcare professionals.

This kind of monitoring is one of Vitaphone’s core competencies. The actual measurement of blood pressure at a patient’s home is one thing, but the service delivered once the data are sent is another one. On this, Vitaphone has been a key player over the last ten years, delivering services, from our unique in its kind, ISO-certified telemedical service centre.
