Which Branch?

I've had an Omron BP checker like this for several years: very reliable and battery lasts for ages. Good price so heat added.

in store ?

Curious about these.

I had to travel abroad for my company recently - so had to have a company medical. Our occupational health nurse chose to take my BP using the 'traditional' way with a stethoscope - despite there being an Omron BP checker on her desk (calibrated the previous week).

Why?

Well, apparently she wasn't convinced about the accuracy of the Omron. To show me, she did a BP check both ways...

Her measurement: 136 / 80
Omron measurement: 150 / 97

calm down, think of your blood pressure

But think how cheap it is to check it also X)

It has been £10 with Asda before so it's not surprising they've knocked it back down again.

She's using an analog sphygmomanometer. The stethoscope is used in the process but not necessarily - they can go off your pulse aswell.

The digital meters doesn't measure your BP directly - it's calculate based on parameters using a data pool.

Somebody who has a condition eg astherlorosis may have non-standard parameters so the calculation can be off.

The analogue method should be more accurate but they have to be able to hear the whooshing (thus steth) or feel pulse change to note reading - so is somewhat dependant on the nurse/Dr.In the right hands it gives reading with greater confidence from what little you've said I'd trust her measurement more.. but would be good if you can bring that down a tad through diet / exercise etc

Yes free BP tests a true bargain - tie up your GP surgery nearing collapse due to strain and make taxpayer expend many times the cost - but a saving is a saving and it's £10 in YOUR back pocket !!

Not at all, a regular check up with your GP or nurse makes sense, they can pick up on things that you may well miss.

A regular check up could show up far more than just blood pressure problems.

I have one of these and it's worth the money. The battery last for years. Voted hot even I don't need to buy one now.

Ever heard of "white coat syndrome"?

en.wikipedia.org/wik…ion

Many people's readings at their GP's surgery are unnervingly high for this reason so if you're worried about hypertension, I'd thoroughly recommend getting one of these are your home readings will be far more accurate; you can also take multiple readings and work out the average to eliminate the occasionally error.

My GP loans out BP Monitors for a week for home use, they then review the weeks readings.

A far more dependable solution.

loads of room in my doctors waiting room

As a pharmacist I feel it is important that people are aware of their blood pressure and also monitor it regularly. Heart disease is one of the biggest killers in the UK. £10 is a small price to pay to help to identify one of the contributing factors to such a serious condition and help keep your family healthy. I like many other pharmacists would gladly advise patients about the impact high blood pressure can have , simple ways you can reduce it and information about the medication that the doctors may prescribe.
