Omron HEM-711AC Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor With IntelliSense
Unlike other automatic blood pressure cuffs I've owned, the Omron HEM-711AC Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor with IntelliSense gives accurate readings even when heart rate is low. I have had trouble with other automatic monitors and have been impressed with how well this unit checks with my old-fashioned manual cuff.
Using the latest technology available, the Omron measures blood pressure at the brachial artery and converts the reading digitally.
I am also pleased with the 5-year warranty that comes with the Omron HEM-711AC and it helps that 60 blood pressure readings can be stored. The size is compact and the cuff is solidly constructed. Unlike other cuffs I've had, the 711-AC cuff wraps around the arm securely without causing discomfort when it's pumped.
The Omron HEM-711AC Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor with IntelliSense also comes with an alternate power source, which we haven't used yet, but seems like a handy feature to have when traveling. I chose this model because of the additional feature of monitoring irregular heartbeats, which I read about in another review and found described in the instruction booklet.
With an easy to read display, a moderate price, simple instructions for positioning the cuff, and accurate readings, I'm pleased with my purchase of the Omron HEM-711AC Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor with IntelliSense and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.
