All About Blood Pressure Monitors

What are blood pressure monitors? A monitor, that monitors your blood pressure. This device will take your blood pressure as often as it is set for, and record the reading that it gets each time. This monitor will help doctors and nurses know if your blood pressure is too high or even too low.

When are blood pressure monitors used? Most of the time the blood pressure monitors are used when you are in the hospital. If you are undergoing some type of procedure in the hospital, many times the nurse will strap a monitor cuff to your arm, so that your blood pressure can be recorded and monitored while they are performing a procedure on you.

Does someone have to manually use a blood pressure monitor on me? A blood pressure monitor can be used manually used by a doctor or a nurse to take an accurate reading of your blood pressure. However, someone manually using the machine is not necessary. The machine will take your blood pressure at pre set times, so that it can be monitored without any one manually operating it.

Can a blood pressure monitor be used in the home? Yes, you can have a blood pressure machine installed in your home. This way you can have your blood pressure monitored, without ever leaving the house. Sometimes this monitor will be used on someone who is bed ridden, and does not have to worry about getting up and becoming unattached to the machine.

Are blood pressure monitors accurate? Most of the time, if the cuff is placed on the arm correctly, the blood pressure machine will monitor your blood pressure accurately. Making sure that the cuff is placed on the arm in the correct spot, and that it is snug enough that it does not move and slide down your arm, will help ensure an accurate reading.

Making sure the cuff is on correctly is the key to an accurate reading, and will help ensure that you are having your blood pressure taken correct.
