Anytime I have the chance to review a product, I am especially grateful when it's a product that would be beneficial for me or someone I know. I come from a family of nurses and other health professionals so I knew if the Ozeri CardioTech Premium Series BP3T Digital Arm Blood Pressure Monitor was any good, my mom or sister would love to have it. It arrived quickly and packaged securely. Once I took it out of the box, I saw it was a very nice looking monitor. Modern!
Looks wise, this monitor is a far cry from the blood pressure monitor I have in my bathroom closet which has a pressure bulb and a mini scale(?). I never liked it, possibly because I'm never sure if I'm really using it properly. The thought of having to check someone's blood pressure by squeezing the pressure bulb while looking at a gauge and using a stethoscope seems really difficult and painful for a person like me who suffers from carpal tunnel. Even at my doctor's office, on more than one occasion I've had a medical assistant or nurse recheck my blood pressure reading because the initial reading did not 'seem' right. The Ozeri Digital Monitor would remove that hassle.
This blood pressure monitor was very easy to use. It comes with a case, batteries and you have the option of purchasing an adapter for it. If you have to monitor the blood pressure of two individuals, that is no problem. It can keep a record of 60 readings for two people (120 in all). It was so simple that I was able to check my own pressure. For people like me who never really understood what the numbers meant, a book is included with the machine, and even better...the machine lets you know if your measurement is optimal", "normal", all the way up to "severe".
