May Measurement Month (MMM) is a global synchronised blood pressure screening campaign led by the International Society of Hypertension (ISH) and endorsed by the World Hypertension League (WHL). Its objective is not only to increase public awareness about the issues associated with high blood pressure, but also to collect scientific evidence to help influence global blood pressure screening policy and make screening more widely available around the world. This app is the preferred method for authorised MMM volunteers to submit data, collected in accordance with the MMM protocol, to contribute to this global campaign. SIGN-IN To submit blood pressure records you will be required to create an account and sign in. The account creation process requires an access code we can be obtained from your regional May Measurement Month administrator. LOCATION We would like to use your location to learn where blood pressure measurements are taken in the analysis of the collected data. With your permission we will add your device’s location in terms of longitude and latitude to any blood pressure records that you upload. Please note that location services are only active when the app is in use. BATTERY Continued use of location services running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. This App has been designed to minimise the impact on your battery life and in most cases will be unnoticeable, but results may vary based on network conditions and usage. SUPPORT Should you have any support questions about the app, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your device model and a description of the problem.
