There are many types of blood pressure monitors, so here is a guide to help you decide which one is best for you:
* Wrist Monitor - Worn on the wrist and automatically inflates, providing readings on the LED display. The size makes it great for travel.
* Manual Inflation Home Monitor - Also known as semi-automatic, these monitors require self pumping of the bulb and provide readings on an LED display. Economical and efficient.
* Automatic Inflation Home Monitor - These monitors inflate with the touch of a button and provide readings on an LED display. Available in basic models to advanced, depending on how many readings you need to take and record, along with other information such as heart rate.
* Physician Grade Manual Monitor - Inflation requires pumping of the bulb and readings are shown on a manometer. Available in basic and in a kit with a stethoscope to read heart rates.
All monitors should include an arm cuff. Larger cuffs are available for purchase seperately.
Each type of monitor is available with different options.
