Facts About Blood Pressure

Your heart is your most important organ, and it’s a good idea to know how well it’s doing. With Omron home blood pressure monitors, you consistently get an accurate picture of your heart’s health.

One in three adults suffer from high blood pressure in America. This condition can lead to heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure, and blindness. With the Omron 5 SERIES upper arm monitor, you can monitor your blood pressure at home, and with the help of your physician, take steps to decrease your risk of heart disease. A healthy heart combined with a healthy lifestyle will help increase your chances for a long, active life.

View this chart to learn more about what the numbers mean.

What the Numbers Mean
Understanding your readings is easy with the Omron 5 SERIES blood pressure monitor. The easy-to-read screen displays your readings in large font and labels each number with a tab along the side.

     Systolic Pressure is the top number on the display. It’s the pressure created as your heart contracts to pump blood throughout the body.

     Diastolic Pressure is the bottom number on the display. It’s the pressure between beats, when your heart relaxes.

These numbers combine to give you your blood pressure reading (systolic over diastolic pressure).

How to Monitor + Tips
Your blood pressure numbers often change. For instance, your blood pressure in the morning can be significantly different than at night, when you visit a doctor’s office, or after exercising. By using an Omron blood pressure monitor at home, you’re able to detect changes in your blood pressure any time you want.

Monitoring at Home is Easy
To ensure an accurate reading, do not measure your blood pressure within 30 minutes of:

  • Exercising
  • Eating
  • Smoking
  • Drinking Alcohol
  • Bathing

Place the blood pressure arm cuff on your left arm and sit quietly for approximately five minutes with both feet flat on the floor. Then, when you are ready to test, simply press the start button and the Omron monitor will do the rest.

  1. Take it from a nurse First off, this is a nice home blood pressure machine. While I would never mistake it for, nor compare it to the 2-3 thousand dollar Dinamap machines I use in professional practice – I do find this little Omron to be perfect for home usage. I was offered this product through Amazon’s Vine program. Although I did not really need a blood pressure cuff I felt that my expertise may provide a useful review.The B/P was accurate and it was done quickly. There is an arrhythmia warning indicator here and since I do not have one, I cannot venture to grade its efficiency but would comment that it is a nice addition. The cuff included is nice and has diagrams on it so you will know with minimum effort how it should be placed on your arm.OK, so I know a lot of people here read the negative reviews in determining if they should purchase a model. I will put these pointers in bulletin form so they are easier to read:- NO blood pressure machine is going to give the same reading every time. Your blood pressure changes with the wind and is not a number that should magically appear on a screen time after time. Using the cuff on the same arm multiple times in a row will likely ramp up the B/P every subsequent time, as well as your frustration. Using it after exercise, stress, meals or while you are tired will all play around with the final numbers. Pick a daily time to take your B/P, sit down and relax, then begin with your arm resting at your side. The main reason you track your B/P is to get a trend, which is why the built in memory is a nice feature. For people on meds or with special directives, continue to follow your doctor’s advice on monitoring.- Cuff size is extremely important! For people with small arms or large arms you MUST go get the correct cuff for your arm size or it will throw the numbers off dramatically. If you aren’t willing to get a new cuff for this machine and your arms are not within this range, don’t waste your money. Using a cuff too small will result in readings that are too high wheras using a cuff too large for your body will falsely lower that reading. If the cuff is peeling off your arm as the machine inflates, or if the cuff feels loose and the machine is ramping up the pressure much higher than your normal blood pressure, you might want to double check to ensure the cuff size is correct, and that it is correctly placed.- Batteries must be fresh and not on their last leg. There is an optional A/C adapter which is DC6V. If you are using batteries you must keep a back up set or go out an get an adapter.Bottom line: if you read, follow directions and keep fresh power to this machine it will give you what you need. The reading is only as good as the machine operator’s technique and this basic skill can easily be mastered with a little patience and research. If you get this machine and are still in doubt as to its proper use you can either consult this product’s manuel, call their help line, ask the doctor’s office nurse for guidence, or simply search on the internet. Hope this helps in your purchasing decision!Made in Veitnam.

  2. Super Easy to Use! Ever since my husband came home from the doc after being told to watch his blood pressure, we’ve been using this monitor. It’s SUPER easy to use, it’s fast, it’s convenient and it’s accurate. I took it with to the doctor and tested them side by side – both this machine and the doctor’s came up with the EXACT same reading.I love that it’s so compact too. When it’s not in use, I put it in the included bag and tuck it into the buffet in my dining room.I’d recommend this cuff to anyone!
