As a wife and daughter of hypertension sufferers, I understand the importance of having a blood-pressure monitoring device in the home. High blood pressure affects 1 in 4 American adults, many unknowingly. With the increased risk of heart attacks, strokes, and other cardiac events and complications due to hypertension, it is important to closely monitor your blood pressure on a regular basis. We have used a standard and very basic digital blood pressure monitor in our home, until the opportunity presented itself to review the CardioTech Pro Series BP5K Digital Blood Pressure Monitor with Voice-Guided Operation & Intelligent Hypertension Indicator.
I found the CaridoTech BP5K to be very easy to use, right out of the box. It came with batteries, which is very convenient. Although some monitors are uncomfortable or tight during measuring, the BP5K was very comfortable on my wrist. The voice-guided operation was pleasant and easy to understand, ensuring I accurately used the device the first time around. In less than 30 seconds, I received my reading. Based on how my pressure runs at doctor's visits, I would say the device was very accurate. I loved that in addition to my reading, it indicated that I was at an "Optimal" level with a 103/68 and it also showed my pulse rate. It was very quick, simple, and easy to use. I look forward to using it on a regular basis. I felt like a nurse, so I continued to take the pressure of everyone in the house. I loved it!
The Ozeri employs the use of an intelligent voice-guided feature that is helpful in ensuring you are properly using the device to achieve accurate measurements. The helpful audible directions and the effective yet simple design are great for users of all ages. In addition to voice-guided directions, the device will alert the user of the classification of the measurement based on six different categories, defined by the guidelines of the World Health Organization. In addition to the standard blood pressure measurement, the CardioTech Pro Series BP5K also has an irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) detection.
To keep a better grasp on how your blood pressure averages, it stores 90 readings for up to two users and will average them based on AM versus PM or your three most recent readings. With CardioTech products being used by physicians and healthcare professionals across the globe, you can feel safe and rest assured that your health is in good hands in the comfort of your own home. The monitor comes equipped with two AAA batteries, a carrying case, and a very detailed and thorough user manual. The product is also backed by a 5 year warranty. The Ozeri CardioTech Pro Series BP5K Digital Blood Pressure Monitor with Voice-Guided Operation & Intelligent Hypertension Indicator can be purchased online via Amazon.
