Health Guru's Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor Review

I received this blood pressure monitor complimentary for my unbiased review. All opinions stated are my own.      

      


                                                                                                                                                        Being older and being overweight, I have struggled with high blood pressure for about 3 years now. This means I have to take a pill every day and I should monitor my blood pressure to make sure the pill is working. Hypertension is called the silent killer for a good reason. Most people that have it do not have symptoms. I was shocked to find out that mine was dangerously high and needed to be controlled.


Hypertension can cause heart attacks, strokes and many other health related issues. So I have been using an old blood pressure machine. It was my husband's mother's so it was at least 16 years old. It worked for a while but then began to be unreliable. This meant I had to go to places like CVS or Raleys to check my bp and hope their machines were calibrated correctly. This Heath Guru blood pressure monitor will let me stay home.  
                                                                                                                                                                    It is very easy to use, just plug in the hose, attach to your upper arm and press start. It comes with instructions for those that are not familiar with how these machines work. I was ready to try the machine out in less than 5 minutes. It is pretty quiet, just the sound of the cuff inflating and then it counts down to the right numbers. I think the whole thing took less than 2 minutes to do. I like that it had a larger cuff too so it wasn't hurting my arm at the end of inflating like the old one did. It also can be programmed for up to 7 users so other members of the family can keep track of theirs at the same time. It runs on 4 AAA batteries and your first set is included in the box. It also has a nylon zippered bag to hold your machine and cuff in when you are not using it.
