Doctor here - people with high blood pressure, affecting about a quarter of the adult population, are advised to get regular blood pressures done. Yes, you can do it at the GP, but a vast number have 'white coat effect' - they get a slight rise in blood pressure when going to the doctors. If I saw you, did your blood pressure and it was raised, we'd arrange for you to have a BP monitor to monitor it at home for a week. After that week, we could then consider investigations and medication. Most want to continue to monitor their blood pressure as it gives them some handle on their condition - they get to know the numbers, and if they see it creeping up, they can book a further review. It gives people a feeling they are in touch with their own health.

Was just about to order Omron M2.
This looks the same, might go for it!
Looks ok as is clinically vaildated and decent price.
Got an Omron M2 Basic a few years ago as they were using Omron at my doctors surgery.
Cuffs are quite small
I have this and it works a treat

Cuffs are fine
Good brand and item

Good price. Cheaper than average retail price for this brand and such item

We used to use this in healthcare settings

Heat.
OK enlighten me, who needs this as any chemist or docs will check it for free. Do people need to check bp that often and still live?

Well that is so helpful, I am so glad you took the time to leave your nebulous comment.
Bought one of these, very convenient to use, and very easy. Even says if high/normal/low.

You only check your BP 9 to 5?

Not sure in what way you asking me a question answers the question that I was looking for an actual answer too, but again thanks for the nebulous comment.

Sarcasm seems lost on you.

What if your BP suddenly feels high middle of the evening, are you going to wait till the next morning to get an appointment to the GP?

Blood pressure is good to monitor whenever you need to, not just at the doctors.

My explanation : It's very borderline if I need to go on medication for my blood pressure or not. I've had a 24 hour monitor attached and its still not clear cut.
My GP advised me to keep a diary of my BP so I've been using one of these (or something very similar) to measure in the morning and evening for the last month and seeing the GP next week. So it'll be interesting to see what she says. She can now make a decision based on some good long term data.
Thanks OP.

Actually yes. Doctors sometimes send you home and tell you to check it every day for 2 weeks. They will lend you one, however our doctors had none available. So yeah...

Thanks OP, does this need calibration done by GP every two years?

I don't think this can be further calibrated.

You can use it to compare with other bp measurement set.

Some say replace It after 2-3 years

When I got diagnosed with high BP I didn't believe it so first of all I could use my own monitor to verify it. Then I was put on medication and I could see myself whether it was having an effect or not. I kept a record of my BPs and the nurses/doctors found this useful when I went back to see them to see whether to increase or decrease the dosage. So there is no NEED for me to have one but it can be helpful for both patient and medical staff. You could almost say there is no NEED for most things we buy in western society.

Yes, I'm a big believer in the benefits of shared health care. You did the right thing. Ignore the previous poster questioning the "need" for it.

Guys, don't feed the troll!
BUT .. if you buy something like this .. without any identifiable need .. then you become something of a hypochondriac? constantly checking your BP and running to the doctor when its 5% up or down? like buying a weighing scale .. use your trousers or dress to tell you when you're putting on weight.
It does seem cheap tho ...
I want a home MRI scanner really ....

Thank you for an actual answer without the jibes, hope it works out well for you
Thanks, ordered
Mine arrived, next day delivery even though I chose the free delivery... I've had this before with CPC, some orders arrive next day even with free 3 day delivery. Then again I've paid for next day delivery and it's arrived several days later!

Blood pressure monitor works well.
