LifeSource is the #1 Recommended Brand of Blood Pressure Monitors in Canada
You Trust Your Pharmacist, and Pharmacists Trust LifeSource
May 2020 – Mississauga, Ontario — LifeSource by A&D Medical has been providing Canadians (and people around the globe!) with trusted, precision home measurement devices for over 40 years. This year, for the second year in a row, LifeSource was named the top recommended brand by Canadian retail pharmacists.
Local pharmacists are the lifeblood of the medical community. In fact, according to the Canadian Pharmacist Association (CPA), “92% of Canadians believe pharmacists play an essential or important role in Canada’s health care system”. Because of the way our healthcare system functions, they are often the first line of defense – a trusted resource for discussing concerns or asking questions.
The CPA says that the trust runs deep: Canadians have a more positive view of pharmacists than doctors, teachers, and police or military officers.
This trust is important, especially when deciding which blood pressure monitor is the right choice for you. If you’ve talked about it with your pharmacist already, they’ve likely told you that there are a few key factors to consider before you make your purchase:
- Cuff fit – the cuff must fit your arm correctly in order to get a correct a proper reading.
- Clinical Validation – not all blood pressure monitors are created equally. LifeSource monitors are validated by independent parties, which means they are thoroughly tested and proven to stand up to the medical industry’s world-class protocols.
- Recommendation by Hypertension Canada – in addition to our Clinical Validation practices, you should look for the “Recommended by Hypertension Canada” logo on the box of any monitor you are considering. Or check their website to make sure the device you’re interested in is listed.
- Features – do you need an upper arm monitor, or is a wrist monitor better suited for you? Do you need multiple users? Maybe you want Bluetooth wireless tracking, verbal coaching, or measurement averaging?
Regardless of your specific needs, your pharmacist will be able to answer all of your questions, help you determine the right size, and maybe even watch you use the monitor once you’ve purchased it to make sure you are using it correctly.
