    Blood pressure monitor

    I don't know if this is right area for this. Looking to buy a bp monitor, and was wondering if you all have any favorites. Want a good one, with big cuffs.

    Mine is Omron. They make quite a few. Easy to use with big digital readout.

    Same here. I have the bp760 with the universal solid cuff that is easy to put on correctly.

    I have Omron and they are pretty accurate, I check it against a manual BP monitor and they are near identical in results. Costco sells them real cheap.

    I use an OMRON wrist model. Surprisingly, it's within a few digits when tested at my Docs office. I'm guessing you guys have found standard model(s) with larger cuff sizes readily available? Can anyone please send me a link? I've never seen them available on-line with big enough cuffs...

    Is this the wrist model, my dentist uses one. Do you find it as accurate as upper arm one?

    Omron are good, but they come with a standard cuff. You will have to buy the XL cuff separately. If you have a 16 inch arm or bigger, the standard cuff will give you a higher reading.

    That has to be why mine is always a lot higher than the reading at my doc's on the mercury sphyg. I have an omron HEM773. the cuff is too small. I didn't know there were xl cuffs available! I'll get one. Thought the machine was.just a.POS although I did my research before I bought the thing... Supposed to be one of the best for home use.

    I went and got a cvs model, for the wrist for 79-25%. It sucked 245/132 lol I would be close to dead. So I took it back and they were gonna give me 79 back I told the girl I had 25% off and she just wouldn't listen and gave me 79 back. I tried cause I'm an honest person. But anyway went to Walmart got the omron wrist one and it works great 131/82 so I'm happy with it.
