Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor
When you’re ready to purchase an automatic blood pressure monitor, there are several things to keep in mind. You want to get the best value you can and still get a high quality monitor. Before you purchase a monitor or order one, follow these tips for purchasing one and using it.
Tip 1: Decide on an arm monitor or wrist monitor. Most of the time, it’s better to use a monitor where you place the cuff on your arm. These tend to be more accurate and the newer models are small and easy to transport.
However, there are some good reasons that you may choose a wrist monitor. For example, you may have a larger arm that a cuff can’t fit around properly. You may also have pain when your blood pressure is taken in the arm. Using a wrist cuff at this point is a good alternative.
Tip 2: Read the reviews. One of the greatest things about online technology is that it allows you to look at the reviews and specifications of products before you buy them. When it comes to an automatic blood pressure monitor, you need to make sure you read the reviews.
Look for monitors that have mostly good reviews. There may be some bad ones, but if most of them are good it’s okay. Also look for the types of problems people have with the machine. Are they because of user error? Or are they because the equipment is faulty?
Tip 3: Read the directions. Most of the time when there are errors with a blood pressure monitor, it’s because the user didn’t follow the directions properly. While these monitors are simple to use, you still need to be sure and follow all the directions.
If you’ve followed the directions, make sure to call customer service before returning the monitor. They may be able to walk you through the process to help figure out what’s going wrong.
Tip 4: Check your monitor against the doctor’s office. If you’re dealing with high blood pressure, it’s important to make sure measurements are accurate. Try taking your monitor with you to the doctor’s office.
Compare the number your healthcare provider gets with the measurements from your own monitor. If they’re different, see if your doctor can help to make sure you’re using the monitor in the correct spot.
If you can’t get the numbers to match up within a few points, you may need to return the monitor. Then look for another automatic blood pressure monitor that does perform the way you need it to.
It’s much better to keep yourself from developing heart disease than to try to keep it from getting worse later.
