profesionales del sector sanitario


Explanation:
This translation appears to me a little more formal and restrictive than "profesionales de la salud", specially in the context of blood pressure monitoring. This option would leave out self-appointed "profesionales de la salud", narrowing it down to more "official" professionals (presumably more authorized to recommend it)


    Just my opinion
