Wrist Or Finger Blood Pressure Monitor: Which is Best

 

If you have high or low blood pressure, it becomes necessary to have a blood pressure monitor. Blood pressure check-ups are very imperative. You can get your blood pressure checked either at homea or at doctor's clinic. There are a lot of BP appratus available to measure blood pressure. If you want to measure your blood pressure at home, you need to have a device that is accurate and easy to operate and handle.

If you choose digital home blood pressure monitors, then wrist or finger blood pressure monitor would be a great choice. It really fills the bill.

A) Wrist device:
In this device, you will find an electronic monitor with a pressure sensor, a pump that is electrically driven, and a wrist cuff. You can attach the device to your wrist. It is powered by battery. Wrist device comes in the form of cuffs. Cuffs are wrapped around the hand and in no time or you can say in seconds, it indicates the blood pressure and pulse rates reading. Readings appear on the large digital screen.

B) Finger device:
If you are thinking of having a blood pressure monitor to measure your blood pressure at home then you can also go for the finger device. Electronic monitor and a finger cuff give birth to this device. This device may also be attached to the finger. It too is battery powered, is very accurate sensitive in its measurement and easy to use.

Digital monitors can be fitted on the upper arm, wrist or finger. Arm devices are the most accurate. Avoid devices that measure blood pressure in your finger, because they're not accurate. Wrist blood pressure devices are slightly more accurate than finger devices, but are still not usually recommended. One use for wrist monitors is for those people for whom a large upper arm cuff is too small or can't be used because of shape or pain from the pressure of the cuff when it inflates. Be sure your arm is at heart level when using a wrist monitor.

Talk over the choices with your doctor or nurse so that you pick the monitor that's best for your situation.
