I was recently placed on different BP medication and was told to monitor my blood pressure. I was using another brand of monitor which gave inconsistent readings. My cardiologist recommended that I purchase another brand and stated that I did not have to pay top dollar for a good one. I puchased this unit and compared the results against my other unit and found this one provided a reading that matched the one I recieved from my doctor.
