Different Types of BP Monitors Available

Electronic Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor: Most physicians prefer an upper arm BP monitor to measure your blood pressure.

Digital BP monitors inflate themselves. Some models let you upload readings to your laptop or mobile. For operating an electronic BP monitor, you  need a source of electricity. Most of the electronic BP monitors operate on batteries. Also there are electronic BP monitors which come with A/C adapters.

Electronic Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor: A wrist BP monitor is significantly more discreet and smaller than upper arm blood pressure monitors. Some people will find accuracy problems with wrist BP monitors. This is mainly due to the reason, you are not following the correct methods and techniques as per the instruction manual. Today technology has advanced much more and most of the Wrist Blood Pressure Monitors will give you accurate results.

Sphygmomanometers: Old-fashioned manual mercury BP monitors are very accurate and most of the doctors use it for their clinical purpose. Also these are economical compared to electronic BP monitors. Moreover, it doesn’t require a battery or electricity to operate. However, it will be difficult to use for a self test or home monitoring.
