The Search for the right Blood Pressure Monitor
If you have hypertension then you should be regularly monitoring your pressure levels. High blood pressure can lead to heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure, and blindness.
Purchasing a blood pressure monitor for your home is a great idea.
A Omron Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor is the answer for those who have been looking for a simple, affordable home blood pressure monitor they can trust.
With the Omron 10 SERIES upper arm blood pressure monitor, you can monitor your blood pressure at home, and with the help of your physician, take steps to decrease your risk of heart disease.
Omron is amongst the best and trusted blood pressure monitor brands available today.
One of the most important things to consider when purchasing a blood pressure monitor for your home is the monitors ability to produce doctor’s office type of accurate results.
My husband and I have tried several brands of automatic blood pressure monitors before and have never been satisfied with the results, as the readings were inaccurate. The “Omron BP785CAN Blood Pressure Monitor” provides accurate readings, leaving me feel confident and secure with Omron. The unit is easy to use without assistance. You put the cuff around your arm, place your arm into the correct position and the machine inflates the cuff automatically and measures the diastolic and systolic pressures. It also measures your pulse and the time the reading was taken.
The pre-formed ComFit™ Cuff expands to fit regular and large sized arms. The Cuff Wrap Guide Indicator on the monitor will confirm the cuff is wrapped correctly. The cuff feels comfortable and is easy to put on and take off.
The Omron, Series 10 has many unique features including a Trueread system that automatically takes three consecutive readings one minute apart and displays the average, following the guidelines set by internationally recognized guidelines for home blood pressure measurement. The BP indicator shows how your reading compares to internationally recognized guidelines for normal home blood pressure levels.
The monitor will also accommodate “guests” and two users (A and B). It will keep track of the blood pressure readings from both the A and B users. The Omron BP785 10 Series will record and store a maximum of 200 readings with date and time-stamp for easy research of the last 200 readings.
Another nice feature of the “Omron BP785CAN Blood Pressure Monitor” is that it can detect and alert you to irregular heartbeats while your blood pressure is being measured.
The unit comes with an ac adapter which I use, but also works with 4 AA batteries. There is also a little tote to keep it all together for storage or traveling, which is great.
