When I was pregnant with my third (& last) child, my blood pressure skyrocketed! So much that I had to take Labetelol to keep it lowered. Flash forward a little over a year later for my yearly exam, my blood pressure is up again. Not as high as it had been when I was pregnant, but still high for me. My doctor wanted me to go back in routinely to get it checked, but with three small kids in tow (attempting to find a sitter for a 2 minute appointment is pointless in my opinion), a high reading would be guaranteed. So I asked if I could get it checked every week at the grocery store using the big machine & that was OK. But I never remembered when I was there. Now you can imagine how happy I was (my doctor too) when I found out the folks over at Ozeri were going to send me the CardioTech Premium Series BP3T Digital Arm Blood Pressure Monitor to review!
"The CardioTech Premium Series BP3T Blood Pressure Monitor is an advanced 2-user arm-cuff monitor powered by a state-of-the-art CPU that utilizes a double pulse detection algorithm to enhance pulse wave detection, thereby improving accuracy."
This lightweight blood pressure monitor comes in a portable case. But unlike most monitors I've seen, it truly is portable, running on 4 AAA batteries (included). So there's no pesky cords getting in the way (something I always had a problem with when I had to use my FIL's monitor).
As you can see, it even looks simple to use! Coming with a user manual & an arm cuff designed with clinically proven technology, the CardioTech Premium Series BP3T Digital Arm Blood Pressure Monitor offers advanced one step operation. Designed for two users, you can store 120 readings (60 per user with date & time stamp) to carefully monitor your blood pressure. I can't tell you how much of a lifesaver that part has been for me. I can even call my doctor & give him an average based on my past 3 readings. he really is amazed at how diligent I am with all of this now!
This monitor also keeps your pulse & will tell you if you have an irregular heartbeat. I love that feature for my husband. He hasn't had an irregular heartbeat yet that we know of, but there are plenty of heart problems on his side of the family. So it's nice to take a proactive approach to my high blood pressure & be on the lookout for any arising heart issues my husband may have.
"Unlike traditional blood pressure monitors that inflate to 170 mmHg or higher by default, the CardioTech BP3T utilizes MWI (Measure While Inflate), a dynamic measurement technology that varies the inflation process according to real-time blood pressure detection to reduce measurement time and increase user comfort."
Backed by a 5 year warranty, you can purchase the CardioTech Premium Series BP3T Digital Arm Blood Pressure Monitor on Amazon.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
