“You are having a heart attack right this minute.” Janice, Texas

“You are having a heart attack right this minute.” Janice, Texas

“I have been married for 50 years, have 3 children and 8 grandchildren.  I am retired but used to have my own business in the corporate world. I love investing in other people and helping them do better. I am a very healthy person, who loves to exercise. I went to the gym 3 times a week and didn’t have any heart health risk factors. 

On November 4th 2019, I woke up in the middle of the night and thought I had a sore throat on my left side. I didn’t know what was going on, so got a drink of water but still didn’t feel right. I woke up my husband and he called 911 and the EMT (emergency medical technician) got here in 5 minutes.  

He attached several leads to me, and after a brief pause said, “You are having a heart attack right this minute”. They rushed me to hospital and it turned out I had a severe blockage in my main artery. The cardiologist later told me that my heart stopped beating twice. It was a miracle to live through all that.  

Our daughter is a nurse practitioner and she and my doctor said I need to get a good blood pressure monitor.  She researched for the best product and found all the positive reviews about QardioArm so this was the first choice. I can’t tell you how much I love QardioArm. It has given me such peace of mind. And when I wake up in the middle of the night I can send my blood pressure measurements straight to my doctor. 

Now I tell all my friends about it, and recently had several different friends order one.

We loved the blood pressure monitor so much that we wanted to get the QardioBase 2 as well to keep us healthy. Information is powerful, the more information we have about our body the better it helps us manage our body.  I love it, it greets me and my husband personally and helps me keep on track with my health goals. Plus it is very accurate. 

Both products are a very trusted source for my family.”
