The Omron 7 Series Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor is a quality medical instrument designed to enable hypertension sufferers and those who care for them to make accurate blood pressure readings. This, in turn, enables the doctors to make correct decisions regarding medicines and treatment. The instruments is designed in such a way as to enable even those without any kind of medical training to make fast and accurate readings, with minimum difficulty. An attractive product at an affordable price, the Omron 7 Series Blood Pressure Monitor takes a lot of the tension out of caring for a patient with high levels of hypertension.
According to feedback from both patients and their carers, this product is much appreciated. Particularly appreciated is the fact that the cuff of the instrument is large enough to accommodate even the largest of arms. The instrument uses the Easy-Wrap Comfit Cuff, for standard and large arms. Also appreciated is the fact that the instrument is so fuss-free. The instrument is generally considered to be quite comfortable for the patient and simple enough for even the most inexperienced carer to use. This makes both the doctor’s job and the patient’s life considerably easier. No more inaccurate blood pressure readings, which used to cause mistakes and confusion.
The design of the instrument is both attractive and extremely compact, making it easy to store safely. The instrument comes with both an instruction manual and a quick start guide, which makes it easy for patients and their carers to get started as soon as possible. The process of taking a reading is done quickly, without needing the help of a stethoscope. The reading conveys, by means of green (normal) or orange (danger) whether the patient is in the normal or hypertension range. This is a great help to the carers, who generally need all the help they can get. This is another much appreciated aspect of the instrument.
Another appreciable aspect of the Monitor according to patient and carer feedback is the fact that it can store up to 60 days worth of readings for two patients This gives the doctor a good overall view of the patient’s condition. The fact that it can be used for two patients is a bonus if there is more than one hypertension sufferer in the same family.
Are there any negative aspects? According to one user, the instrument is claimed to give three consecutive readings within a minute of each other, giving the average as the actual result. However, according to that user, this claim is misleading. This feature is available, but in the Omron 10 Series Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor, not the Omron 7. Another patient had claimed that the Cuff was a little too stiff for comfort. It very much depends on the patient, it seems. Experience differs from one to another.
Overall, however, the experience of this instrument appears to be positive. From ease of use, to affordability and design, the Omron 7 Blood Pressure Monitor has found favour with most of the patients who have tried it.
