People with ongoing health problems that would benefit from regular checks should consider vital signs monitoring at home.
Vital signs monitoring is crucial to help you live a long and healthy life. Monitoring these signs gives you information about your general wellbeing that can be passed on to your clinical team. This can help pick up early signs of an infection, prevent a misdiagnosis, detect symptom-less medical problems, and motivate lifestyle choices. All of this can be done from inside your own home, without constant clinic appointments.
Vital signs vary from person to person, and as you age these may change, especially if you have other medical issues. Your clinical team will have a good idea of what your vital signs should look like and be able to notice any changes from your normal readings.
