My dad needs a Blood Pressure Monitor for home

Resolved Question:

My dad needs a Blood Pressure Monitor for home. I purchased The Premium Automatic Inflate from CVS>>his caretaker insists the Onron is superior. Is this true.

Or which one do you recommend. He has had open heart surgery with a pacemaker

This is what I would do since you have already purchased it.


Check his b/p with your machine when she is there and then let her check it with the manual cuff to see if it is accurate. I would do that every month or so to make sure that it is accurate.


Any electronic b/p machine needs to be checked every so often to make sure it is accurate, no matter what brand.
