Blood Pressure Wrist Monitors:
Good Or Bad?



Should you buy blood pressure wrist monitors? The answer to that question depends on several factors.   Do they work in unique ways?   Unlike others that have a cuff for the upper arm, these have a smaller cuff, which goes around your wrist.

At first, this may seem like a small difference, but in fact, it can be a big difference. The wrist style blood pressure monitors do make taking your blood pressure faster and easier. This is one reason why so many purchase them.

My Doctor showed me how to properly use this monitor. After strapping on the device to your wrist it has to be in line with your heart, almost resting on your chest.  It has a light at the top of the screen that tells you if your hand is positioned correctly. 

The light turns to green; that signals automatically confirms that the cuff is level with your heart ensuring an accurate reading.  Fortunately, the HEM-650 features has that advanced positioning sensor.  I just love that.


Some Important Facts



When selecting be sure that it fits the following requirements:
  • The Advanced Position Sensor (APS) ensures an accurate reading.

  • Correct cuff positioning is critical when monitoring blood pressure. Only Omron Wrist Blood Pressure Monitors with APS have a unique positioning sensor that automatically confirms the cuff is level with your heart. This helps ensure that each and every reading is accurate.

  • It is Important to know your blood pressure monitor with wrist cuffs are particularly helpful if you have a larger than average sized arm. The wrist cuff ensures easier and more comfortable use. The wrist cuff requires proper positioning at the heart level.

  • An ill-fitting cuff or an incorrectly-applied cuff can result in inaccurate readings. Consult your doctor or the instructions that came with your blood pressure monitor for the proper application of the cuff.

Research And Compare

One of the things you may notice about blood pressure monitors is that they are not all the same.   Some have extra features while others are simplistic in their design and function.

Any option here is fine, as long as the accuracy of the device is there. Keep in mind that the best way to know which the best option is, is to carefully compare several brands and models before purchasing them. You can do this right online at Amazon for ease of use.


Price Factors

Another important part of the selection of these monitors is the cost that are often quite expensive. This is due to the unique internal workings of the device.

Blood pressure wrist monitors can be a good investment. Specifically, if you are interested in a fast and easy way to monitor your blood pressure, this may be the right way to go.
