Strokes, sometimes referred to as brain attacks, cause fear for many because they happen quickly and require immediate medical treatment. A stroke is caused by a sudden interruption in blood supply to the brain, which can happen for a variety of reasons.
Clinical studies show that one of the best ways to reduce the probability of having both an initial and repeat stroke is by taking control of your blood pressure. Virtual check-ins with DailyDoctor can help you monitor your blood pressure and keep it within recommended goals.Get Started With DailyDoctor
Most strokes are caused by an abrupt blockage of the arteries that lead to your brain, which are called ischemic strokes. A second type of stroke is a hemorrhagic stroke, which is caused when a blood vessel bursts and bleeds into your brain tissue.
Once you're signed up with DailyDoctor, we'll mail you a remote monitoring kit with everything you need to complete your daily check-ins.
Inside the kit, you'll find:
You can let us know if you prefer to communicate by web, text (SMS), or phone call each day.
Each morning, you'll measure your blood pressure and heart rate. Your information is then wirelessly transmitted to us.
A DailyDoctor physician will review your information and reach out the same day if they need to adjust your treatments or recommend additional medical care.
If we don't hear from you, a DailyDoctor care coordinator will remind you to check in.
