Where would i be able to but the large cuff ? Im looking for one larger than 32-42cm ive heard paramedics sometimes use the larger ones and would like to know of any shops or websites when i could get one ? Thanx
I bought an Omron blood pressure monitor have just taken my first blood pressure reading. Then nine more readings as I was quite shocked by the readings. Five readings off each arm. Systolic ranged from 97 to 101. mostly 98 and 99. Diastolic ranged from 58 to 65. mostly 62 and 63. They seem awfully low. I wanted to ensure I didn t have high blood pressure but now find its lower than normal which I m told is around 120/80. I vaguely remember having it check years ago by a GP and I think he said something like 120 or 130 over 70 or 80. He died a few years back, so there is no way I can confirm that. Could this be a problem? Why so low? Comments?
My boyfriend is 43 and has found out he has high blood pressure. He has to go to a hospital in 2 months to get fitted with a 24hr monitor. The reading when he first saw the doctor was 140 / 85, he then bought an Omron home testing kit and his readings have been 135/77 and then a week later 143/68. He has been watching his diet and exercising more. Are these numbers going in the right direction? Which is more important? The systolic or diastolic? Many thanks
