CardioTech Pro Series Blood Pressure Monitor
When I received my Cardio Tech Pro Series Blood Pressure monitor in the post to review, I have to admit I was a bit nervous. Not because I was worried that I would find out bad news or anything like that, but because I didn’t have the foggiest what to do with one of these contraptions other than know that it goes on your arm. I’ve been rigged up to enough of the big hospital ones in the past I had a general idea of what happened. But using a tiny version like this at home and doing it for myself is a different kettle of fish altogether.
After opening the box, the first thing I noticed was the sturdy blue plastic box it comes in. I don’t know if its just me, but it sort of reminded me of a plastic box my parent kept false teeth in if we went on holiday to keep them safe or to soak and clean them. Anyway to me, this box is a nice touch. Instead of doing what some companies do and just give you a cloth bag or a bubble wrap sheet to protect your beloved goods, this box is ideal. You could drop this and it won’t break. It may pop open but I’m sure if I was dropped, I would pop open somewhere as well. At least, where the plastic container is concerned, the monitor inside will be protected and not get damaged.
It’s also a nice compact size for your bag, if you wish to have peace of mind and carry it with you.
After that, the next thing was the instructions. The DREADED instructions. I opened the booklet expecting to find about 2 pages of instructions then being repeated in every language known to thinking man. I was very surprised to find the whole instruction manual in English. The instructions are really easy to understand. Considering its a medical blood pressure device, theres no confusing lingo. All plain simple English.
Using the monitor is really simple. After inserting the included batteries, part of the wrist cuff is moulded to sort of hook around the side of your wrist, after that its just a case of wrapping the other side of the cuff around so that the screen is on your inner wrist pointing towards you. Its all held in place by velcro. Following the instructions, and placing your arm on the table so that my hand is at heart height with your hand relaxed. ( diagrams in the booklet ) then just press the big button on the front, in the middle. It then starts whirring and tightening ( inflating ). A flashing heart on the display shows its detected a pulse ( which I understand is always a good thing ). This inflating only lasts a short while ( because of new MWI ( measure while inflate ) technology that reduces the measurement time, before it shows your Systolic and your Diastolic Blood Pressure levels and pulse rate in large clear digits on the LCD screen. There is even an icon that shows up if arrhythmia is detected.
The CardioTech Blood Pressure Monitor stores up to 180 blood pressure readings for 2 users. That is 2 x 90 readings. Once the limit is reached, the monitor will delete the earliest reading.
Now, I am not medically trained in any way, apart from a St. Johns badge when I was about 10 years old for learning how to apply a sling, put someone in the recovery position or resuscitate a dummies head. Apart from that I am just normal everyday medically unqualified person. With that said, I have to point out that even I found this blood pressure and pulse monitor very, very easy to use. I would say that even the elderly or infirm could use one of these with ease.
Today, the monitor actually came in very handy as an ambulance had to be called by my doctors surgery for chest pains I was having. I was able to give the ambulance man info that I had gathered from the monitor earlier in the day, which helped build a larger picture of what had been happening. Thankfully everything was fine.
I would like to point out one thing though, this monitor in no ways replaces your medical services. If you are in any doubt or have any concerns you must contact you local GP or health service.
