Home BP Monitors
Blood Pressure Monitors are frequently used in home healthcare settings given the prevalence of white coat syndrome. Often doctors advise patients to begin regularly checking their blood pressure in at home so they can get a reading in an environment they are comfortable in. You don't have to be a healthcare professional to take a reading the machines are very straightforward to use and provide a digital reading.
The technical name for a blood pressure monitor is a sphygmomanometer. These monitors consist of the measuring unit and a blood pressure cuff which which wraps around the arm and inflates. When the cuff is inflated or pressurized it slightly restricts the flow of blood in the artery in the arm. A meter then measures the difference between the impeded and unimpeded blood flowing through the arm and --- voila, you have your blood pressure reading.
