Heart Rate Monitor for Heart Patients

If you have a heart disease, don’t worry, you are not alone. According to what I have read, there are millions of Americans, who have heart disease.  For the treatment of this condition, there are hundreds of drugs in the market, and probably, thousands of combination treatments possible.  So, what’s the best treatment for you? Well, heart patients usually take several pills to dilate the arteries of the heart, and other pills for high blood pressure, diabetes or cholesterol problems.

I also have read that after a heart attack, a cardiologist would usually request a treadmill test like jogging while being monitored by an electrocardiogram. This test would determine how much physical activity, measured in metabolic equivalent, a patient is allowed before the oxygen supply to the heart is hampered.  

When you are at home, and you are doing a little exercise, you must have a gadget that could monitor your activity. Heart RateMonitor Watches for heart patients are now available in the market. You must wear this gadget before doing your physical activity. Of course, those with chest pains should have their pills handy just in case they feel something. Be prepared. Have all your pills, patches, gadgets, and a glass of water ready to go.
