Great choice. Doctor suggested I monitor my blood pressure and purchase a portable unit. I looked at what was available at the local pharmacy, then at another retailer. I compared what was available and there were several different options. One could even be connected to a computer to save the data. I chose this unit as I liked the memory that could hold 90 measurements. I didn't have to write anything down if I didn't need to. When I returned to the doctor, I just gave him my unit and he loved it. He went through my readings easily. It was a great purchase as it was lower than most electronic units.
Completely satisfied. The B/P monitor is compact, easy to use, easy to store and comes with a nice bag in which to keep the cuff. I find it to be quite accurate when compared with my blood pressure as measured on a more sophisticated electronic model I use at the hospital where I work. Concerning the review that indicates their blood pressure is higher when measured at the doctor's office...so is mine. Many people have what is called "white coat syndrome" causing a nervous response to being in the doctor's office that causes the BP to go up. Which is why you take it at home and track your readings, so you can show them to your MD when you see him. Overall I am very satisfied with this product.
The EW3109W is Awesome! I've owned this BP Monitor for a few years now, and I love it. I've had three home health nurses visit and help me and they all were impressed with it's ease of use and accuracy. One of the nurse's went and bought one for herself because she thought this unit worked so nicely. It's so easy to use... the cuff is preformed to easily wrap around your arm then just push one button and off it goes. In about 30 seconds I have my BP and heartrate. That easy. Supposedly, you can store these measurements on the unit, but I have yet to figure it out. All in all, I really like this BP Monitor and it's highly recommended.
Love the product. Product is easy to use, has color LED's for Hypertension (red), Pre-Hypertension (orange) and Normal (green) for both Diastolic and Systolic readings, the heart rate and the data storage so I don't have to enter the data in my spread sheet every time I test my blood pressure. Storage of the cuff is rather cumbersome; I leave it outside. I also cut the length of the velcro because I have small bycepts.
