Until next time, "Dell" By Jim Miller Dear Savk ; Seniol; Can you offer me any tips on choosing a home blood pressule monitor? ljustJbund out l have high blood pressure, and my doctor tom me I need a monitorJbr the house so I can keep an eye on it. Shopping A round Dear Shopping, Almost everyone with high blood pressure or prehypertension should have a home blood pressure monitor. Home monitoring can help you keep tabs on your blood pressure in a comfortable setting. Plus, if you're taking medication it will make certain it's working, and alert you to a health problem if it arises. Here are some tips to help you choose a good monitor. Types of Monitors The two most popular types of home blood pressure monitors on the market today are (electric and/or battery powered) automatic ann monitops, and automatic wrist mon- itors. With an automatic ann monitor, you simply wrap the cuff around your bicep and with the push of one button the cuff inflates and de- flates automatically giving you your blood pressure reading on the display window in a matter of sec- onds. Wrist monitors work similarly, except they attach to the wrist. Wrist monitors are also smaller in size and a bit more comfortable to use than the arm monitors, but they tend to be a little less accurate. :~, To help you choose the best monitor for you, here are several things you need to check into: Fit: Using a cuff that's the wrong size can result in a bad reading. Most arm models have two sizes or an adjustable cuffthat fits most peo ple. Make sure your choice fits the circumference of your upper ann. Accuracy: Check the packaging to make sure the monitor has been independently tested and validated for accuracy and reliability. You can see a list of validated monitors at Ease of use: Be sure the display on the monitor is easy to read and understand, and that the buttons are big enough. The directions for ap- plying the cuff and operating the monitor should be clear. Extra features: Many monitors come with additional features such as irregular heartbeat detection that checks for arrhythmias and other ab- normalities; a risk category indica- tor that tells you whether your blood pressure is in the high range; a data-averaging function that al- lows you to take multiple readings and get an overall average; multi- ple user memory that allows two or more users to save previous read- ings; and computer connections so you can download the data to your computer. Portability: If you plan to take your monitor with you while trav- eling, look for one with a carrying Sago, C0nt page 5 Photos: Submitted Top: (L to R) Courlney Shirek, Grace Johnson Bottom: Jessica Johnson, and Julia Johnson PARK RIVER; N.D. -- Four pi- the daughters of Russell and Barb ano students have recently corn- Johnson of Park River.
