If you're monitoring your blood pressure as part of hypertension management or as a preventive health care measure, try an upper arm blood pressure monitor. It's important to choose the right cuff size for your arm for an accurate reading. There are different size cuffs available with monitors, as well as replacement cuffs. You can choose between upper arm blood pressure monitors from brands Zewa, Omron and Homedics that inflate manually or automatically.
Selecting a monitor
In addition to having the option of automatic or manual inflation, there are upper arm blood pressure monitors with digital displays. Other home blood pressure monitor kits have an aneroid sphygmomanometer, which is what many doctors use in their offices. Since manual blood pressure monitors require a stethoscope, these kits usually include one. You can also choose your digital blood pressure monitor with features that include the ability to store readings over time for long-term monitoring, as well as a talking function to help you take an accurate reading.
More home medical options
There are also wrist blood pressure monitors that allow you to take a reading from your wrist. This can be an easy way to monitor blood pressure for many users.
