Blood Pressure Reading.
In Brief Blood pressure is the measurement of the force of blood against the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps blood throughout the body. Blood pressure is expressed as two numbers, with the systolic pressure (the top number) representing the pressure in the arteries when the heart beats, and the diastolic pressure (the bottom number) representing the pressure in the arteries between beats.
Why Check? Blood pressure is an important indicator of overall health - providing valuable information about the functioning of the cardiovascular system. Here are some reasons why you should check your blood pressure regularly: Hypertension: High blood pressure, or hypertension, is a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke. Regular monitoring of blood pressure can help you detect and manage hypertension, which can reduce your risk of these conditions. Cardiac health: Blood pressure is directly related to the health of the heart and blood vessels. Changes in blood pressure can indicate changes in cardiac function and may be an early warning sign of heart disease. Medication effectiveness: If you are taking medication to manage blood pressure, monitoring your blood pressure can help you determine whether the medication is working effectively. Kidney function: High blood pressure can also be an indicator of kidney disease, and monitoring blood pressure can help you detect changes in kidney function. Stroke risk: High blood pressure is a major risk factor for stroke. Regular monitoring of blood pressure can help you identify changes that may increase your risk of stroke.
ACCURACY Blood Presssure Reading + / - SBP: 10 mmHg + / - DBP: 6 mmHg What does this mean? Helfie Vitals AI screens for blood pressure with a maximum error rate (if any) of + or - SBP: 10 mmHg or = / - DBP: 6 mmHg - this means that the readings produced by the algorithm may be off by up to 10 mmHg for systolic blood pressure (SBP) and up to 6 mmHg for diastolic blood pressure (DBP). For example, if the algorithm produces a reading of 120/80 mmHg, the actual blood pressure may be between 110/74 mmHg and 130/86 mmHg. While a 10 mmHg error rate for SBP and 6 mmHg error rate for DBP may seem high, it is important to note that these error rates are generally considered acceptable for check purposes or for monitoring blood pressure trends over time.
No more fumbling around with expensive equipment, manually recording readings or missing checks.

+ Blood Oxygen
As Helfie AI checks your Blood Pressure, it also measures your Blood Oxygen.
In Brief Blood oxygen saturation, also known as oxygen saturation or SpO2, refers to the percentage of hemoglobin in the blood that is saturated with oxygen. Hemoglobin is the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body.
Why Check? Blood oxygen saturation provides valuable information about the functioning of the respiratory and cardiovascular systems. Regular checks will let you monitor your: Respiratory Health: Blood oxygen saturation can be used to monitor respiratory health, as low oxygen saturation can indicate problems such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and pneumonia. Cardiac Health: Blood oxygen saturation can also be used to monitor cardiac health, as changes in oxygen saturation can indicate changes in cardiac function and may be an early warning sign of heart disease. High-Altitude Illness: At high altitudes, the air pressure and oxygen availability decreases, which can cause low blood oxygen saturation. Checking your blood oxygen saturation regularly when at high altitudes can help you detect and manage high-altitude illness. Sleep Apnea: Low blood oxygen saturation during sleep can be a sign of sleep apnea, a condition in which a person repeatedly stops breathing during sleep. Anesthesia Monitoring: Blood oxygen saturation is also monitored during surgery to ensure that the patient is receiving adequate oxygen and to detect any changes in cardiac or respiratory function.
ACCURACY Blood Oxygen Reading +/ - 2% What does this mean? In other words, if Helfie's AI provides a Blood Oxygen reading that is incorrect, the maximum level of inaccuracy would be 2%. This is considered a small error rate.

Why do we read this? When measuring someone's heart rate, it's important to also check their respiratory rate because the two are closely related. The respiratory rate refers to the number of breaths a person takes per minute and plays a crucial role in maintaining the body's oxygen supply. The heart rate responds to changes in the respiratory rate to ensure that the body receives enough oxygen and removes carbon dioxide efficiently. A change in one can affect the other and impact overall health. For example, if a person has a high respiratory rate but a low heart rate, it may indicate respiratory distress, while a high heart rate and low respiratory rate may indicate a problem with the heart or circulatory system. Helfie AI measuring both heart rate and respiratory rate becuase it provides a more comprehensive picture of a person's overall health.
About Respiratory Rate Respiratory rate is the number of breaths a person takes per minute. The normal respiratory rate for adults is between 12 and 20 breaths per minute, although this can vary depending on age, physical condition, and other factors.
Why Check? A low respiratory rate (bradypnea) is generally defined as a rate below 12 breaths per minute, while a high respiratory rate (tachypnea) is defined as a rate above 20 breaths per minute. Abnormal respiratory rates can be caused by various factors, such as exercise, stress, medical conditions, and medications. Monitoring respiratory rate is important for assessing a person's lung function and overall health. Changes in respiratory rate can indicate potential health issues, such as respiratory infections or metabolic disorders.
ACCURACY Respiratory Rate +/- 3 rpm What does this mean? It means that Helfie AI's respiratory rate measurements may be incorrect by up to 3 breaths per minute. In other words, the algorithm's respiratory rate measurements may be off by as much as 3 breaths per minute from the actual respiratory rate. This is small error rate.

Pulse (Heart) Rate.
Why do we read this? When measuring someone's blood pressure, it is important to check their pulse (heart) rate because blood pressure and heart rate are closely related. Blood pressure is the force of blood against the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps it around the body. The heart rate, or pulse rate, is the number of times the heart beats per minute. Changes in heart rate can affect blood pressure, and vice versa. For example, when the heart beats faster, the blood pressure tends to increase. Similarly, when the heart beats slower, the blood pressure tends to decrease. Therefore, checking the pulse rate while measuring blood pressure can provide additional information about a person's cardiovascular health and help look for conditions such as hypertension, bradycardia, or tachycardia.
About Pulse (Heat Rate) A Heart rate, also known as pulse, is the number of times a person's heart beats per minute. The normal heart rate for adults ranges from 60 to 100 beats per minute (bpm), although this can vary depending on age, physical condition, and other factors. A low heart rate (bradycardia) is generally defined as a heart rate below 60 bpm, while a high heart rate (tachycardia) is defined as a heart rate above 100 bpm. Abnormal heart rates can be caused by various factors, such as exercise, stress, medical conditions, and medications.
Why Check? Heart rate is an important indicator of overall health and fitness, as it can provide information about the heart's ability to pump blood efficiently. A slow heart rate can indicate that the heart is not working efficiently, while a rapid heart rate can indicate an overactive thyroid, stress, or anemia. Regular checking will help you to pick up any variations in your heart health before they become serious issues.
ACCURACY Heart Rate Reading +/- 3 Beats per Minute What does this mean? It means that the Helfie AI Heart Rate algorithm's measurement of a person's heart rate may be up to 3 beats per minute higher or lower than the actual heart rate. This is referred to as the margin of error or the level of precision of the algorithm. It does not mean the algorithm is + or - 3 bmp inaccurate with every measure. On the occasions it may be, this is the range that it is likely to be incorrect. For symptom checking purposes this is considered a relatively small error rate.

Why this is Important Regular tracking of blood pressure is an essential aspect of monitoring one's cardiovascular health. It is a vital tool for early detection and management of hypertension, which is a common yet potentially life-threatening condition. Blood pressure is the force that blood exerts on the walls of blood vessels as it flows through them. It is typically measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg) and is expressed as two numbers - systolic pressure and diastolic pressure. Hypertension is a medical condition that occurs when the blood pressure in the arteries is consistently high. It is often referred to as the "silent killer" because it usually presents no noticeable symptoms until it has caused significant damage to the organs. Hypertension increases the risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and other serious health conditions. Regular tracking of blood pressure levels and documenting the results and trends in a graph can help detect variations in blood pressure, which may indicate underlying health conditions. Early detection of hypertension is essential for successful management and prevention of complications. By keeping a record of blood pressure measurements, an individual can identify patterns and trends in their blood pressure readings over time. A graph can be an effective tool to visually display this information and make it easier to spot any changes in blood pressure levels. For instance, a graph can show whether blood pressure has been consistently high or whether there have been fluctuations in blood pressure levels. Regular tracking of blood pressure can also help identify triggers that can lead to changes in blood pressure levels, such as stress, medication, or physical activity. This information can then be used to modify one's lifestyle or medication regimen to better manage blood pressure levels. In conclusion, regular tracking of blood pressure and documenting the results and trends in a graph is a vital aspect of monitoring one's cardiovascular health. It can help detect variations in blood pressure, which may indicate underlying health conditions, and enable early intervention and successful management. Therefore, it is recommended that individuals monitor their blood pressure regularly and keep a record of their measurements over time.
