Seen in Lincoln Asda. Don't know if it's national but worth a check if you're going to Asda and need one.

Heat from me.

My wife's blood pressure is sky high.

My fault, I told her to take everything with a 'pinch of salt'.

cuff a mans ****

Someone tell the NHS ours are over £1,000! X)

I hope this are more accurate than their bathroom scales

Can confirm its national

Every home should have one.

Where is it situated in store please ?. Is it beside the pharmacy or in one of the aisles. Thanks

Amazing deal

Just be warned all those voting hot if this is not validated it could give a false sense of security. My advice go to your doctor to make sure it's reading ok otherwise it could be the worst £3.75 you ever spend!

Going to your local chemist would be a more sensible approach.

For more accurate results do it when you wake up early morning and while its on relax and try to not think.

Every time this comes up I can never find one - can anyone vouch for them having been in Norwich (boundry road)

There's a full automatic blood pressure checker in my doctors surgery, so you can go in and check your blood pressure without troubling a doctor or nurse. I'd assume that would be quite common.

I got the salter upper arm blood pressure tester from asda last year and mine seems to be quite accurate compared to the one at the doctors.

They normally sell it at cost for £7.50, and also do a wrist one with integrated cuff for £3.75. Its harder to get a consistent, accurate reading from a wrist one though.

It's besides the pharmacy in Lincoln. I presume it's the same elsewhere.

Thank you gouryella

I have two of these and they're pretty accurate although I don't think they're approved by the British Hypertension Society. Don't forget that the cuff may not be the right size for you and will affect the reading.

Also it's scary taking your blood pressure when pretty hung over. Try it sometime.

Got one a few weeks back. Gives totally random readings, even when taking two in a row, they would be completely different to each other. Example..
139/87
120/91 after 5 mins sitting
141/90 after another 5 mins sitting

Returned and refunded.

They are pretty accurate. The very same ones are used in pharmacies and in GP surgeries up and down the country.

Readings can differ for many reasons. For example how loose or tight you tie the arm cuff, whether you cross your legs, what height your arm is at, whether your talking or quiet etc etc

Overall it is advised you measure your BP at home due to 'white coat' hypertension. I have come across quite a few people that have been overmedicated with blood pressure meds due to this.

As someone who has worked in the medical profession for 35 years I cant agree with Jaybeams comment and am more inclined to agree with spitthedog1964 "every home should have one". Read the instructions carefully. Take a few measurements over a period of time. If they are abnormally high you need to see your Doctor. These machines are a helpful guide but your Doctor is the person to see if you have any concerns.The number of patients I saw who had high blood pressure without knowing it was shocking.
Andrew22 did you put the cuff on in the correct manner and did you have the machine at the correct elevation ?. You will get different readings for all sorts of reasons. Heres a guide for anyone who invests in one of these lifesavers.

You also need to loosen the cuff between readings.

You can also get inconsistent readings if you have an irregular heartbeat, in which case the salter one will flash the heart symbol when it shows the results.


One of the doctors at my surgery uses a less accurate wrist one.

Great price and worth having one in every family to check at least monthly

The Salter blood pressure has been advertised by Asda since last year but whenever I querried to buy it . I kept being told its sold out.

you might have an arrhythmia if you're getting very erratic readings.
Ask your pharmacist to check your pulse to see if its regular or irregular.

Sounds like a great deal. Will be taking a trip to Asda tomorrow. Thanks! Hot from me. (_;)

I set mine to automatic (1 minute) and strapped it around my genitals. Best £3.75 I've ever spent.

If you're buying a BP monitor for home use, do have a look at the British Hypertension Society recommended list of monitors as all these are clinically validated to one or more of several universally accepted protocols:

http://bhsoc.org/bp-monitors/bp-monitors/for-home-use/

(If the table doesn't load you can download a PDF of the list).

Price does not necessarily correlate with the validity of readings, as even the cheapo Lloyds Pharmacy one which sold for a tenner (now discontinued) has passed their validation. The table lists the prices as well, which is very helpful.

Interestingly, there are several Salter models that are on the list, though there's no way of finding out if this particular model is included as the model no is not given here.

Yes, and the one in the surgery is so inaccurate. I do 3 readings and none are concordant.
