I think this would make a lot of sense. ... as much as taking regular blood tests.. (for me anyways)..


I am looking at these models below. I am concerned about the cuff size being a little too small (or tight - like in my doctor's office).... The second option takes your blood pressure from your wrist...

Any advice/recommendations will be appreciated...

My doctor recommend this brand as the best and you may find them used at Ebay;

Omron 10 Series and Life Source are the two I have that give me nearly identical readings. It's very important to measure your arm without flexing so you buy the correct sized arm cuff.

I don't like the two links you posted. Too cheap and one is a wrist cuff. Stay away.

I have a LifeSource by A and D Medical.

A Gift from my Primary at the VA, works really well........................... JP
P.S.
Make sure you get the Extra Large Cuff if you have large arms, as using a Cuff that is Too Small will give you a False High Reading.

Lifesource with extra large cuff for myself.

Cuff size will make all the difference.

I do Lifesource XXL

Then Omron standard size and try to get both to test very similarly back to back.

Thanks for the feedback/recommendation everyone...


Future freak:

This is the one you use? I assume this monitor is accurate since its 3 times the prices of the options I was looking at...:)

Looking at the customer reviews... 14% gave it a 1 of 5 rating... that is not good... of comments about it being a "piece of junk"?

I ordered the one with the Xtra large cuff and then also ordered a large cuff to separately to see if there is a difference. Got the same readings with both. My arm size fits their large so I just use that. Their XL size is for massive arms.

Can't stress the importance of making sure you get the right cuff size. At home i read damn near perfect, at the doctor's due to small cuff size i'm reading about 10 to 12 points higher on systolic and diastolic

Same, but even more than 10-12 points higher even with their large cuff (depending on the office).

Cuff size made a big difference for me too, much higher readings with the smaller cuffs.

People often/usually average a higher reading at the Dr. office then they do at home.
