Not so long ago I was at the hospital and they mentioned my blood pressure was quite low, while this wasn't something I had ever had mentioned to me before, (as the only issue with my blood pressure in the past had been trying to take it), I thought it was best to keep an eye on it.
Thankfully a couple of days earlier the Ozeri CardioTech BP3T blood pressure monitor had popped through my door – which meant I could get a bit of an idea about what was going on, in the comfort of my own home.
This blood pressure monitor comes with all the bits you need to get taking, yours, or someone else's blood pressure, it of course comes with a cuff that is sized at 22-42cm (adult medium) and the CPU unit which can store up to 120 readings for 2 people which includes time and date impressions. The unit of course is responsible for pumping in and letting out the air from the cuff to help give you optimum results. As well as the equipment needed to take your blood pressure, the box also includes a carry case and a set of batteries, to get you started straight away.
I found it a little difficult to use at first on my own to be honest, but then I am a little shaky with most things, however the instructions made it simple to work out how to use, with large arrows making sure you place the cuff in the right position.
Once you get used to how it all works (or if you have someone to help you) however, the process of taking your blood pressure is really quick and the ability to keep on top of it is really at your fingertips.
The monitors screen is large with an LED backlight which makes it easy to read and thankfully you don't need to know what the actual reading means, as the system offers an easy to understand system of High, Normal and Low across the bottom of the screen.
All in all the system is very well made as well as being easy to use, once you get used to it, for anyone who wants to keep a close eye on their blood pressure for health or fitness reasons I can completely recommend giving this monitor a try.
What do you think of the sound of this monitor, do you think it could be useful to you?
