Manual blood pressure monitors
If you monitor your blood pressure at home, getting a correct reading is important. You can use manual blood pressure monitors for accuracy. Home blood pressure monitor kits can include a cuff that inflates manually and a stethoscope for hearing your heartbeat. You can choose a manual blood pressure monitor for managing hypertension or as part of preventive health care from brands Lumiscope and BV Medical here at Walgreens.com.
Using a blood pressure monitor
Whether you use a digital home blood pressure monitor or a manual monitor, it's important to choose a cuff size that fits your arm correctly. Digital blood pressure monitors can be ideal if you are hard of hearing, since you don't have to listen for your heartbeat with a stethoscope. To keep track of your blood pressure while travelling, you can choose a smaller monitor or one without a digital display. You can use some monitors on the wrist, while most are designed for the upper arm. For medical professionals, we also carry sphygmomanometers, replacement cuffs and a range of stethoscopes.
