Monitoring your blood pressure using a home blood pressure monitor can be a really useful way of seeing what your blood pressure is like in your daily life. To get accurate readings, it is important to use the right monitor and the right technique.
Which home blood pressure monitor?
If you are thinking of measuring your blood pressure at home, it is important to choose the right home monitor. Whatever automatic home blood pressure monitor you choose, make sure that it has been ‘clinically validated’. This means that it has been tested and gives results that you can trust.
