Blood pressure and pulse/heart rate are the 2 of the most important vital signs where health is concerned. These measurements help to assess the general health or basic body function of a person.I've tried several blood pressure monitor from Gurin and from experience, I know that their products are durable, well made and accurate.
The Gurin upper arm automatic digital blood pressure monitor is so handy
and easy to use. It is very convenient to have one at home to check and
monitor blood pressure and pulse rate. In fact, I can take my BP myself
without the need for help as it is easy to apply the cuff and the big
monitor displays the result within seconds. The result is quite accurate
but not as precise as the mercury and aneroid sphygmomanometer, which
is the most accurate and precise type of equipment to take blood
pressure. Of course, I wouldn't use the latter ones at home since
mercury is toxic and poisonous.
This BP monitor can record 60 previous
readings for monitoring and comparison. My mom who is 46 uses this every
now and then just to check her BP. She does not have high BP but has a
family history so she wants to check for her peace of mind and besides,
one can not always go to the clinic just for BP. This is 1 instrument
that is important to have at home for health monitoring and assessment.
only thing I noticed was that the large digital display doesn't have a
back light so I have to use this in a well lighted area. Although the
display is large, making it easy to read, the lack of back light makes
the display a bit dark and hard to read in dim places. Other than that, I
like how the cuff deflates on its own after a blood pressure reading.
The 4 x AA batteries are also included which is a nice addition too.
