Having spent the best part of 35 years using these machines in a Clinical setting I cant emphasise enough how important a purchase like this could be. Its amazing the numbers of people out there completely oblivious to their seriously high blood pressure. Early detection could literally save someones life.

Make sure you read the instructions properly as it easy to get an abnormal reading if your arm positioning is incorrect. Also make sure the cuff is on properly. If you do find that your BP readings are abnormal then go to see your GP or Practice Nurse.

PS Taking a reading after exertion of any sort isn't going to be helpful. Readings that are consistently high over a number of days are of most concern. This is just basic advice/information. Your Doctor/Practice Nurse are the best people to see.
Perfect for hypochondriacs. Also good for fitting around your neck and playing the game of 'who can stay conscious the longest when it inflates.' Guaranteed laughs with your mates

"Step 4: Relax and wait for the results"


roflmao


FTFY
Step 4: Wait for the results and if no heart icon shows and your blood pressure is normal then you can relax
If heart icon shows then don't relax as potentially you are in AF (Atrial Fibrillation (irregular heartbeat)) and seek urgent medical advice if this is new
or
if this a repeat occurrence then expect the usual Dr V Frankenstein treatment if medication (more than likely) is not effective in putting you back into rhythm.


Can't add anything informative towards high/low blood pressure except if your results are both zero you are a ghost already so stop playing with the machine and go scare someone

Fair play, I was merely pointing out it’s still a live deal as it hadn’t expired

They all do similar jobs with similar results based on human intervention (meaning person A might not get a 100% accurate reading/result if they didn't sit still, if they didn't put it in the right place etc whilst Person B might get 100% accuracy then for some non medical reason might get a false reading - my suggestion would be IF YOU NEED TO check for a medical condition do it regularly and if you get a blip...take a breath/take a break and rerun the test)

I, unfortunately, had to purchase one (to check/monitor my heart rate even though I'm Red Cross and HM Forces trained First Aider....I could never find/check my own heart rate) - it's a Betterlife version (almost exactly the same) and I've never had an issue with it....sadly can't say the same about my heart

I have one and checked it when I was at the doctor's. It was pretty accurate compared to hers.

Yes, I have one and it's a solid little thing. The one I had before was from Lidl and have the same readings so they are equally accurate. That one was £20 but had an accompanying app which connected via Bluetooth and logged the readings. Perhaps worth the extra money. (And Lidl then reduced it to £15 once their offer had finished).
I always attach mine when the energy bills arrive. It doesn't give a more accurate reading but the bleeping and siren noises amuse the grandkids.
A unit that takes AA rather than AAA batteries is better IMO, you loose your reading history when changing them, and AAA's go flat quickly.
I bought a 'lifecare' brand unit that seems OK, with a two user 90 reading memory and average function using AA batteries. You can get it from amazon for £9.5+3.35 p&p ('Digital Heart Blood Pressure Monitor Hypertension Monitor Upper Arm Lifecare Machine'). Its also quite quick and not too noisy. Also available for £9.99 delivered from a well known electronic auction site.
Some units read pressure by gradually inflating the cuff and measuring the pressure range over which the cuff pressure has pressure pulses, others inflate and then gradually deflate, picking out the same pressure range on the way down (the lifecare unit does this and this is the way that manual units work - more or less).
I have tried both, and the 'reading on the way up' one seems to give a slightly higher reading, by perhaps 1 or 2mm Hg.
In the old days I believe high pressure for men was more than 100+your age, and for women 90 + your age. We are all now supposed to have 120/80 average pressure or less (bloodpressureuk dot org) regardless of age.
If you know someone who has had a stroke you will probably appreciate that making sure you lower/discover your risk is a good idea.

Her’s wasn’t accurate then
As per the Apple Watch ECG I’m waiting for the doctors and nurse’s to come on here and say it’s not accurate, it’s not safe, someone shouldn’t self diagnose, always visit the doctor (then when you get there they say “what do you expect me to do?”) and all the other BS I have seen on those threads
These are being sold off cheap, they are not upto standard. There are new rules coming into effect soon and once these rules come these will not be allowed to be sold.
Would usually recommend people to buy omron as they tend to be very accurately calibrated. The M2 basic is usually between 20 and 25 pounds. I personally would pay a little bit more for piece of mind. This is almost certainly fine for the job though.
Does anyone know how this compares to the Omron m2 basic?

Thanks all!!

In my surgery we only use omron.
They probably both work fine but omron calibrate theirs well and even offer servicing / calibration.
It's generally trend in BP and especially changes to BP with medication changes that you're interested in.

I doubt there is a GP in this country who would roll their eyes if a patient came in with high BP readings.

I do joke about it but 3 years ago when I was 27 I went into afib 5 days in hospital cardioversion and couple months of drugs gp told me I was fine and just worried when I went the first time so took myself to a and e. Much better to monitor at home in my mind and then show them proof and always push for further testing.

FYI after ultrasounds and cardiac mris with contrast dye etc my heart was deemed to be normal with no explanation for the atrial fibrillation much more common in younger people.

I now monitor my blood pressure with an omoron and my afib with an alivecor device. Since using it I test friends and family for fun with them but the truth is I want people to know that high blood pressure is known as the silent killer.

Also with atrial fibrillation it is perfectly possible to live a normal life so like the silent killer blood pressure it's perfectly possible to live without realising you have it.

I have been told that for every 1 person diagnosed with afib an estimated 10 are oblivious to having it and that nearly a third of strokes are cause by afib when a clot forms in the heart which is then ejected into the blood stream when going back into rhythm.

There are quite a few athletes who have afib due to stress on the heart I once read the actor who played malcom in the middle had a stroke at a young age possibly due to afib and sadly can no longer remember any of malcom in the middle filming etc. Aubrey Plaza had a stroke to and was unable to move or speak for some time.

Since starting testing my friends and family I've found one irregular heartbeat and 3 on blood pressure medication now. Never know might have saved their life.
alivecor.com/

That's the link to the ecg monitor I bought mine but the NHS were trialing them on younger patients who go in and out of afib when I in afib.

Also 9 out 10 strokes can be prevented apparently so take care

Jeeez 27 is a bit young.....hope, for your sake, you are fixed and zero recurrence


I went to GP for a Well Man Check - nurse said "I didn't look well"
I replied "I've just got a bit of a cold"
She grabbed my wrist - 30mins later I was at QMC A&E (GP admission) with AF
I knew nothing...I was active (not sporty just active) did my own DIY, maintenance, decorating, keen cyclist, jogger, walked etc

it can hit anyone, anytime, anywhere and most know nothing

Within 2 years I had MI (stent fitted) I suffered no chest pains for the MI

Hearts been fixed a few times with cardio version I've just very recently been put forward for ablation - hopefully that'll fix my broken heart (For those that know of me and my history they'll understand the pun/wit)

I have the monitor to check only when I know "someat ain't right"

I just wish there was an easy fix/cure for the secondary illness brought on by heart issues which is also invisible but more debilitating pfffft

Where's the nearest knackers yard? Google doesn't help
Tried a Lloyd’s BP monitor before was woefully inaccurate took it back and got an Omron M2 basic for £19 - take it to your doctors to validate before relying in it!

It is strongly recommended these days that everyone should know what their blood pressure is. So not for hypochondriacs or messing about with but common sense to have one and it might just save your life.

Better to use best of three readings always to give you an idea of using for medical reasons
I bought this just a few days ago at full price. If only I waited
