I've been taking my blood pressure at home for years using one of those wrist cuff monitors. Although I had never attempted taking it with a regular cuff and stethoscope and I did pick up both at an auction. I had no idea that it was so tricky to do. So I gave up on those and just kept using the wrist cuff. But now thanks to MeasuPro, those days are over! I can also tell you that I had been very interested in trying this product for several reasons, I'm starting to get up there in age now (55) and there has been a history of high blood pressure (hypertension) in my family.
I know that high blood pressure is a serious problem and it can lead to some serious problems such as coronary heart disease, heart failure, stroke and kidney failure and bunch of other health problems. Many people that have high blood pressure may have no idea. It has no signs or symptoms and many adults have had it for years without knowing it. When that happens we now know that high blood pressure has already done damage to our heart, kidneys and blood vessels. They estimate that about 1 in 3 adults in this country has high blood pressure.
The best and smartest way to stay on top of high blood pressure is to monitor it at home. Whether or not you have been diagnosed with it or you haven't been, taking your own blood pressure often is a tremendously helpful way to be proactive in your health and the health of those that you love.
The MeasuPro Digital Arm Blood Pressure Monitor is exceptional. It's very easy to use and set up. The direction are clear and easy to understand and follow. It comes with a product manual (with directions in English, French, Italian, Dutch and Spanish) and the customer support info is on the back of the manual and includes a phone number, a street address as well as an email address which is a great thing to know because I've often had a tough locating that info for products I've bought in the past.
The blood pressure reading done with the MeasuPro are equivalent to those by a trained person using the cuff and stethoscope auscultation method. I can tell you that the results are consistently accurate when takes 5 times over a 15 minute period compared with my old wrist cuff which had clearly inaccurate results several times during that 15 minute test. Just like my old wrist cuff this one also keeps track of 2 separate users history. Although I must add that the MeasuPro is far easier to access one user over another because the history is stored separately which is really a lot handier.
The wrist cuff was different and I had often experienced user history accidently being deleted on several occasions and it just was a problem that I had to live with. The MeasuPro is different and there are 2 separate buttons and each one keeps track a user's measurements. Another thing I like is this one lets you see where the measurement is on a scale from being optimal, normal high normal, mild and so on which instantly lets you know where you are at as far as your pressure and pulse.
I'm very much pleased with my new MeasuPro Upper Arm Digital Blood Pressure Monitor. I will definitely recommend this to my family and friends. This is available on Amazon and qualifies for Prime.
