I was instructed to purchase a blood pressure monitor so that my mother's pressure could be monitored three times a day, however her idiot cardiologist refused to recommend a brand, and I purchased this. I purchased Panasonic because it is one of the better mainstream electronics manufacturers, and the company stands behind its products. I remember reading that wrist cuff blood pressure monitors were not as accurate as the ones that are placed on your arm, but since I had no clue about what I was doing, I relied on the Panasonic wrist cuff, hoping that the technology had improved. It hadn't. My doctor's office took a reading from my arm with a regular blood pressure cuff, and the Panasonic wrist cuff mmediately after, finding that the Panasonic was off by +10/+6 which is a significant difference, particularly when the blood pressure being monitored is already high. It was later suggested by my physician that the next time that I purchase a blood pressure monitor, that I should invest in an Omiron blood pressure monitor with an arm cuff instead.
