Omron 5 Series Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor with Cuff that fits Standard and Large Arms
The 5 Series is great for measuring your blood pressure monitor at home.
Omron’s Advanced Accuracy is trusted and proven to give consistent and precise readings.
The Omron 5 Series is quick and easy to use and is more advanced than the 3 Series.
It has features that include:
- dual settings for two users
- memory storage space for up to 100 readings
- and a wide range cuff that fits standard and large arms
This model uses 4 AA batteries, however, you can purchase a power cord to run on mains power (although, there are reports that the cord is really short so unless you can sit close to the power socket an extension cord would be required).
However, I have used an earlier Omron monitor for at least 10 years and can’t see why you’d want to use mains power.
As you’d expect it comes with a quick start guide and instruction manual, which I suppose one should read. But apart from insert batteries, turn on, put cuff arm and adjust, then push the button, there isn’t much more to know:)
The Omron Series 5 Blood Pressure Monitor can be purchased from a number of online stores.
The benefits of monitoring your own blood pressure
One of the greatest benefits of monitoring your blood pressure yourself is that you will have a much better understanding of your condition.
Do You Have High Blood Pressure?
Then you need to read this book, by New Zealand author, Dr. David Lovell-Smith.
In this book, Dr. David Lovell-Smith describes how his patients successfully used diet, lifestyle changes, and Transcendental Meditation to bring their blood pressure down.
This book offers new hope and insight for those with high blood pressure but it is not for hypertensives alone. The knowledge which Dr. Lovell-Smith presents in his book is timely and relevant, and its exposition is long overdue.
